After returning home from The Social, Holistic Fashionista’s first annual event, I was literally punched in the face (in a good way) by the individuality that exudes from this intelligent tribe. From playing the harp to finding your StyleVoice, the talent that lives inside these luxe entrepreneurs is astounding. As I gallivanted from chair to chair, I was energized by positivity, holistic knowledge, and the exceptional originality everyone possessed. That got me thinking and reflecting…

I looked around the beautiful Mafia Suite contoured with bay windows, french doors, lush green trees, bougainvilleas, and a dirt path road, when one of those rare yet, brilliant ah-ha moments occurred. While sharing my nerdy math sales funnel formula, numerous versions of myself stared back at me. Only this time the genius came in many different colors, outfits, and glamour. That’s how we roll.

Another thing I recognized was how everyone was “being themselves.” No one felt that had to put on a phony smile when they felt like tearing up or talking candidly about their jade egg. What a pleasant (and hilarious) surprise. No wandering the hallways like those stuffy seminars trying to find someone to take a selfie with so your Instagram followers think you’re somewhere awesome. Instead a group of friendly Facebook faces finally morphed into real flesh and blood who made sincere eye contact and camera time was indulgent. Yeah, it was that good.

So this month at Holistic Fashionista, (and might I add— perfect timing), is about embracing your individuality. This means never being afraid to be who you are, showing your true colors, and letting the world really see YOU. In each of us lives a budding leader who is ready to make some waves and ruffle a few feathers. We’ve proven to be a bunch of leaders who don’t judge and won’t mind if you dance to “Just Like Heaven” like an 80’s queen bee— black eyeliner and all.

Many new friendships were formed, mastermind groups created, and lots of new Signature System Funnels clients ready to eat up the goodness that came from The Social. I can definitely attest to being the connector for these like-minded leaders and while the relationships may have been brewing in our virtual sphere months prior, this time we got to seal the deal with a proper hug and shake hands with the divine.
