JOC – a wonderful gathering for professional women & guests
YOU JUST EXPERIENCED JOC FOR THE FIRST TIME. WHAT ARE YOU FEELING?
I met Bonnie online and then spoke with her by phone about JOC. I applied and decided to become a JOC Leader without ever attending a JOC event. I just remember thinking that it sounded so much better than the networking events that I had attended and groups that I had joined.
WHAT WERE YOUR INTITIAL THOUGHTS?
I flew down to Atlanta and attended 2 JOC events—Bonnie’s and another licensee. I LOVED it!!! I was so glad that I had taken the leap of faith. The events were even better than I had anticipated.
HOW WILL YOU BENEFIT FROM JOC?
It helps me to step out of my comfort zone and meet other women but in a non-threatening way. I love that it allows me to build relationships and get to know other women. One of my regular attendees says she loves the “intimacy” of the group…sharing a meal and chatting with other women about who they are, not just what they do.
HOW DO YOU SEE YOURSELF HELPING OTHER PROFESSIONAL WOMAN TO GROW?
I see myself helping women in the way that I needed help…utilizing my strengths and realizing that I have gifts and talents to share.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE EDUCATIONAL FOCUS; how do you think that will affect you as a leader and the membership at large?
I believe the Educational Focus will definitely be the thing that sets my event apart from the others. School is never out for the Pro. There are women who have been building their businesses for a while that will learn something new or see things from a different perspective. And there will be women who are just starting out that will get information to help them move forward.
WHAT DOES INTEGRITY MEAN TO YOU?
(Integrity: Having to do with doing what you say you’re going to do and actually doing it.)
Integrity is EVERYTHING. When you say you’re going to do something and you follow through people will definitely trust you and then they will continue to align themselves with you in the future because of that trust. I know I feel that way.
