Everything You Missed at Our Miami WorkParty Tour Stop
We headed down to the 305 for our WorkParty with our next stop in Miami. 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 Lo Bosworth, founder and CEO of Love Wellness. She dished on why she started a wellness brand, her struggles with anxiety, and what it takes to build a brand from the ground up.
“It was my own health journey that led me to create my business. I found out so much about regularly prescribed medication and how most of it in fact makes our symptoms worse. I wanted another solution.”
“Negotiating deals and talking return on investment were probably my biggest challenges when I was bringing this business to life.”
“When I was running the business on my own, I was every single touch point. I wasn’t doing a good job because I was every. Single. Touch point. Bringing on a team really made all the difference.”
“I think everything happens for a reason. Our business growth happened at the perfect time.”
“As the founder I now know what I’m bad at and what I’m really good at. At this point I’m only focusing on those things I’m good at.”
“If you have a great group of friends and a great family, they can give you that inspiration and encouragement that people seek from mentorship. I don’t think you have to look too far for that inspiration, look at the people in your life.”
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.
