Everything You Missed at Our Atlanta WorkParty Tour Stop
We went down to ATL for our WorkParty with our next stop in Atlanta. And, the ladies turned out! We teamed up with Microsoft Teams to bring our guests a WorkParty like no other. As you already know, Seattle is home to some of the most rad companies, including Microsoft.
The event was hosted at WeWork, and our amazing speaker, shared how she brought her own work party to life. Keep on reading for the tips, tricks and tools we learned about last night.
The fifth WorkParty tour stop featured a conversation with Lisa Price, founder of Carol’s Daughter. She dished on how she got started, why representation matters, and what happens when Oprah gives you a shout out.
“During year one of your business you’re growing, you’re learning, you’re experiencing. You’re not succeeding yet, you’re not winning yet, you’re not the best yet.”
“Don’t focus on the end. Focus on the now.”
“When you’re hiring for your company you’re not recruiting new friends. You’re recruiting workers. Remember what you’re looking for, remember your temperament, and make sure that they check all of the boxes.”
“In 2019 I’m mostly looking forward to celebrating where I am personally & professionally, and watching my business continue to be the marvel that it’s always been to me.”
It wouldn’t be a WorkParty if we didn’t have our guests get involved with our friends at Microsoft Teams. We had an interactive booth, where attendees took a quick quiz to learn what kind of team member they are: the influencer, the heart, or the collaborator. It was important for our guests to learn more about Microsoft Teams and how it could help their workflow and overall business. The WorkParty team used the collaboration tool to plan the entire tour.
The ladies in attendance also sipped on some bubbly, courtesy of Chandon, while mingling with each other and as Jaclyn signed some books. There was also Crispin cider on deck, which is the perfect drink as we head into fall.
