This was about the same time I was contemplating leaning out of my own gray cubicle and exploring new territory. I was intrigued… I had subscribed to the move up the ladder lifestyle and I was feeling restless.
It was 7 years later that I started leading my own “club” – Women’s Global Network – giving others a chance to break of out of the day-to-day monotony and connect with a bigger purpose. Now Hera Hub, is sometimes referred to as a “club”. The connotation of “belonging” is a powerful one.
I’ve always loved flying – not only the feeling of flying but also the doors that it opens. I love, love, love to travel. So far I’ve been to 22 countries and have another 80+ on my list. Because of this, I chose to “take flight” for the book launch event… paragliding off the iconic Torrey Pines for the book launch on 4/22/16. See images & video from the flight and party.
It’s the peacock that ties it all together. My first entrepreneurial venture at age 8 really ties it all together… selling peacock feathers in front of JJ’s market in Arroyo Grande, California. Also, the male peacock being the symbol of the Greek Goddess Hera, as she was known for her big beautiful eyes (as those in the peacock feather) and being very watchful over women at every stage of their life.
I often use the analogy of taking flight when describing a business launch. The idea of getting something off the ground and soaring is a strong visual for me.
