10 Takeaways From PowerNET by Brown Girl Marketing #BGMPowerNET

April 6, 2016

PowerNET-Lineup

About last night… Brown Girl Marketing’s Ylorie Taylor produced an amazing networking mixer, PowerNET where any who are looking to take their brand to the next level could learn from fabulous women in business. These subject matter experts, as she calls them, shared their experiences, lessons learned and other tidbits to help us be better at doing what we love!

Who better to host this event but entrepreneurs Myleik Teele of curlBOX and Huetiful creator, Ken Burkeen.

The setup was genius.

Think… speed-dating for branding and entrepreneurship.

While seated at tables throughout the venue, we were given 8 minutes to pick the brains of the expert at our table. Then… SWITCH! The ten experts would then move on to the next table. Eight minutes goes by fast when you’re having fun but we were able to gain a wealth of information from these ladies.

“Show up so much that people have to ask who you are!” -Myleik

“Never leave a venue without people knowing what you do; it’s not bragging, it’s fact.” –Renae Bluitt, In Her Shoes Blog

On the importance of balance… “Make time to stop or else something will MAKE you stop.” Seanna-Kaye Denham of Natural Hair Does Care

“Challenge yourself to work with people who aren’t like you” -Myleik

On trying to maintain a “look” on social media, “Stop worrying about what other people are doing. Be confident in what you’re giving” Camara Helps (to me ↑ :-) )

“Be clear on who you’re reaching, who your audience is” -Christina Brown, LoveBrownSugar

“You should be giving out favors long before you ask for them!”- Myleik

Time escaped us so we only had eight rotations before we had to start wrapping up. So at the end of the speed rounds, Ylorie had all ten experts take a few questions and offer some closing words.
