This hilariousness is what happens at the end of a GNO night when I try to actually get in a photo with our HeartStories photography sister Vanessa. She passes her camera to our custom closet sister Rhonda, while our attorney sister Laura, shows us exactly how to pose to show our “best side”. Much laughter ensued. (I can’t wait to see the outcome!)
Recalling the moment of this photo reminds me of one of my favorite friendship quotes:
A good friend is like a good bra:
- Always lifts you up
- Makes you look better
- Always close to your heart
These women do all of that and more.
One of the most unexpected, and greatest gifts of hosting the Girls Night Out events is the friendships that I’ve developed with the women who’ve become our sponsors. I wish I had a picture here of each of their beautiful faces. Without exception, every single one of them is someone I count as a friend. Our relationships may have started as a business transaction, but because the business we’re about is focused on supporting, encouraging, connecting and inspiring women, they are my “partners in crime”.
They are my sisters.
Of course, there is a business goal, everyone intends to gain clients and grow our businesses. But the means to achieving that goal is based in circles of organic connection and support, not a hollow sales pitch just to win a deal. The women who are drawn to sponsor our GNOs are playing the long game. They’re in it to build lasting and enjoyable relationships based on trust.
They’re doing a bang-up job.
