Experience: Dining with Bevy

Dining with Bevy: Life with Vision is an enhancement of the infamous Dinner with Bevy events that have included guests such as Soledad O'Brien to T.I. and have taken place in the beautiful Big Apple, during the Sundance Movie Festival and other fun locales.

Dining with Bevy: Life with Vision goes beyond meeting Bevy (although a nice perk!) and having a delicious meal. The premise of the series is to "be the platform to begin changing the direction of your life and help usher in the tools and skills necessary to begin living your life with purpose and vision." 

Recently, I had the opportunity to attend the Dining with Bevy: Life with Vision event in Charlotte, NC. Let me tell you, I am just coming off my inspirational high! It was an event like no other and I was happy to be in the room. The event included about 50 attendees who were hand selected by Bevy (you must submit a resume to be considered) and were a mix of lawyers, stylists, teachers and communications professionals all wanting to live their best life. The good vibes in the room were palpable and smiles were given as freely as business cards. Bevy Smith greeted us like old friends, shared her stories and tips over delicious food, all while making us feel like we were on top of the world. Here are some of my takeaways that I scribbled down from the event:

  • Why are you asking someone else to change your life?
  • It is possible to have your work life collide with your fun life.
  • Leverage and respect your relationships.
  • Know when you are "clearly in your zone"
  • Don't chase the stuff, chase the feeling.
  • Figure out your passion push points
Dining with Bevy: Life with Vision would be a perfect gift for any dream chasers, goal diggers and success climbers. You know one or two of those, right? Why not encourage them to submit their resume...and yours for that matter for a chance to attend! You can foot the bill for your love, your bud or your Mom to attend this one of a kind event.

The next Dining with Bevy: Life with Vision will take place on September 8th in LA. Bevy plans to continue the series in major cities in 2013 so be sure to keep up with Bevy via the Dining with Bevy: Life with Vision's facebook page. You can also check out the photos from the Charlotte event.
