Did some thing give you inspiration for your project / action / enterprise?
Academy of Women's Success is a continuation and expansion of something organised since 2006 in the SGH Week of Success Women. It was a weekly series of workshops, panel discussions, and meetings with interesting women - Polish women who have had considerable success.
The extraordinary popularity and success of the project was the stimulus to expand the project on a larger scale. In mid-2008 we began work on the first series of conferences held in the spring of 2009. Huge interest in and support of the participants assured us in the belief that it is worthwhile to develop this initiative further.
The main objective of Academy is to increase confidence and self-belief of all women who dream to start their own business, inspire them through meetings and workshops with interesting people, and to encourage to action and participation, we want to consistently and systematically promote women in development, zoom in and recommend valuable literature, build and integrate a community of women striving for self-development and self-realisation.
Suggestions and advice to give to women :
1st Do not be afraid to dream - create a specific vision of what you want for yourself
2nd Forge dreams into concrete goals and plan their implementation within the time
3rd Search for the support of benevolent people that will help you find the strength and motivation to act
4th Participate in female meetings and workshops - will provide you the strength, faith and inspiration
5th Do not give up at the first failures - remember that success is not a one-time achievement, but the process by which you must make at least a few mistakes to learn how to run properly
6th Celebrate and appreciate your successes - both the large and the smallest - will enhance your confidence and sense of perpetration
