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
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.
