The Enduring Optimist Launch Recap for TEW2

This past August, I was blessed with an opportunity to be a part of the social media team for the TEW2 book launch.

TEW aka The Entrepreneur Within is an inspirational book made for entrepreneurs. The book was curated by Julie Holloway, a graphic design and TEW2Book Launch DSC_0274-015entrepreneur. The book features a handful of stories from fellow entrepreneurs that Julie has networked and/or worked with and their motivational advice on the highs and lows of being an entrepreneur.

The TEW moment took off and has inspired many aspiring entrepreneurs- myself included, to truly discover and cultivate the entrepreneur within us all. When the secret came out that Julie was working on book two, the excitement was contagious.

Julie had brought together 18 business owners to share their stories of awakening, struggle and success and jam packed it all in The Entrepreneur Within 2!

The book launch took place on a beautiful Saturday morning on the patio of a small, chic eatery known as BITES Asian Tapas. Attendees of the book launch took in the causal scenery while we mingled with some of the authors of the second book, shared our excitement for the book and shopped with the vendors featured at the event.

The event featured a special discussion panel with a few of the authors and Julie too. When I wasn’t tweeting and taking pictures, I was taking notes. These business owners not only know business but they know “the struggle” and what it means to follow your passion with a plan!

Life Coach and entrepreneur, Melanie Foote-Davis spoke on the importance of valuing one’s self. She advised that we should be sure to take care of ourselves while we are in the process of taking care of others from the inside out and carry that into our business endeavors.

Melanie explained that when building your business team, make sure that your potential team members’ vision is in alignment with yours before bringing him/her onto your team,

Outcome Specialist, Donna Smith Bellinger discussed the art of “failing up.”

“Own into what your idea of success us and THAT is how you fail up.” She explained.

Julie also added that it’s vital to learn how to become a CEO of your business and not just a worker.

Author Michael Luchies reminded us that your business idea(s) isn’t for everyone! In fact, he introduced the “one person target market” concept. He added that we should have a singular focus and encouraged us to kick one butt at a time!

Round two of the panel discussion featured more authors from TEW2. Their words of inspiration were fueled by faith and the art of changing your mindset.

Author Tiffany Green discussed the importance of prayer; not only praying for the good but also praying to control your thoughts. She added that “everything” starts with a thought. Green also suggested that when your pray, pray differently. Speak the things that you desire into existence.

Graphic Designer, Juanita White shared her breakthrough after suffering a serious injury and encouraged the audience not to fear stepping out on faith and not to let fear stop you.

This panel was on fire with their advice on getting rid of negative thoughts, keeping the faith no matter where you are in your business and most importantly, knowing YOUR worth.

I think Jetta Bates, a lively Consumer Strategist said it best when she said, “Get paid what you are worth.” And added “There is room at the top for ALL of us.”

The book launch closed out with thanks from Julie and the publishing company 220 Publishing. Attendees were able to purchase books and get chapters signed by featured authors. There was something about this book launch that really reignited my spirit. I left the event feeling revived, energized and awakened from the inside out.

I am just a few chapters into TEW2 but I am hooked. Book 1 broke ground on a new and much needed movement and book 2 is setting the precedent for aspiring entrepreneurs everywhere.

Julie did confirm that book 3 is coming while the 4th installment is pending.
