Don’t lose focus of what’s important, because an obstacle gets in your way. This is only temporary. So, don’t allow temporary challenges to redirect everything you’ve set your mind to.
Regroup, and get it done!

After speaking to those close to me, I believe that we have an idea of how to begin putting an end to this madness (see previous two posts on Woman 2 Women). Think about this…what have women been known for doing to just to mix and mingle with other women? Where can women go where they can be free to meet other like-minded individuals where the focus is not on family? Men have sports that bring them together (not to say that women are excluded from this). But, what can women do together that will help close this gap?
Over the next few weeks, I will reach out to others via this blog, randomly out in the community, as well as friends and family to begin figuring out a solution to this dilemma (yes, it’s that important). I love research, and I am excited to see what I am able to come up with!
So, I’ll be needing the help of all of you! Please comment below on the following questions, so you are able to provide me with some initial feedback before I conduct my interviews.
- What is currently available to women where they can go to mingle and network (places, activities to complete together)?
- Of these places, what is the primary focus (family/relationship/work oriented, etc.)?
- What would you like to see women do together, if there are currently no places that meet your needs/expectations on networking with other women?
Thanks in advance for your help!
