Bombshell Third Thursday Kickoff Success - Amber Hurdle | Globally Recognized Leadership & Personal Branding Expert

Bombshell Third Thursday Kickoff Success

January 22, 2016

The first Bombshell Third Thursday was a success with female entrepreneurs from five Middle Tennessee counties represented, including Wilson, Davidson, Rutherford, Sumner and Williamson Counties. Twenty-five fierce fempreneurs registered with only a few unable to attend due to Snowpocalypse 2016 putting a damper on their travel or childcare. Brrrrr!

I thought I would recap the event because sometimes people need to understand what they are getting into before they commit to attending…especially events that involve networking. Let’s face it, so many of those type of events can be a total drag. But I want the Bombshell Third Thursday to be a monthly shot in the arm where female entrepreneurs can connect, kibitz, learn from and encourage each other while also learning something PRACTICAL and ACTIONABLE for their businesses.

Luncheon Flow

Each fempreneur checked in at the registration table, got their name tag and entered into the prize drawing between 11:00 and 11:30 a.m. before entering into the meeting room at Five Oaks Golf & Country Club. As they found a seat at one of the tables they were free to mingle and get to know the other attendees.

A delicious buffet lunch was served promptly at 11:30 and then attendees found their seats, where a “non-awkward networking” activity was waiting for each table to give tablemates the opportunity to know who they were sitting with, what their professional super powers were and how they could help them. Business cards were exchanged and all of that good stuff. 🙂

After lively discussions at each table we then kicked off the program.


January Program

This month, yours truly began with a HUGE thank you to all of the powerful women who braved the cold to kick off this monthly networking and professional development opportunity for area driven fempreneurs. Then, we drew business cards for prizes and then jumped right into the program, fitting for the first of the new year: Glamour Goals.

What are Glamour Goals?

Let’s start by defining glamour:

glam·our (noun): the attractive or exciting quality that makes certain people or things seem appealing or special.

Most of the time we don’t meet our goals because we don’t have a big enough WHY behind them OR because we aren’t sure how to back into bigger goals with realistic, actionable plans.

Since planning isn’t the sexy part of doing business, I came to glam it up and make it fun. Throughout the presentation I walked everyone through my step-by-step process to ensure their 2016 professional and personal goals are truly BOLD, desirable and destined to attract success. Everyone had a worksheet to work through the process as we went so that they could actually walk away with something accomplished. And, because I always want to encourage people to TAKE ACTION, I promised a discount code to anyone who sent me their completed worksheet that would give them access to my online Glamour Goals micro course, complete with instructional videos and worksheets for each step.

After a handful of questions and valuable observations from fellow Bombshells, we called it an event and everyone got back to business!

What’s Next

February 2015 Program: Bombshell Business Bootcamp

Presented by Amber Hurdle, ACC

Thursday, February 18, 2016 | 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

We are taking the third Thursday of February to shift gears (just this once) to this in-demand, all-day training program. I’m tickled pink with all of the inquiries I’ve gotten about when I’m going to do this signature program again.

The Bombshell Business Bootcamp is an immersive and invaluable experience first kicking off with a one-day seminar overlooking the beautiful view at Five Oaks Golf & Country Club in Lebanon, Tenn.

The day will include engaging presentations and group interaction to maximize the talent and resources within the room of like-minded business women. The program is designed to take you on a step-by-step journey through every major aspect of your business — from building a solid brand, to creating systems to turning prospects into leads and sales, to converting those sales into customers for life.

Following the one-day seminar that comes with a workbook, participants will receive access to weekly video lessons and editable PDF versions of the worksheets to dig into and implement the coursework at their own pace while participating in discussions and inspiration within the Bombshell Business Alliance online mastermind group.

Check out all of the details and register by CLICKING HERE. (Again, space is limited. Ask any official Bombshell…you WANT to be a part of this group! They are AH-MAYZING!)

***Bombshell alumni, be sure to use your special code you will receive via email for your special rate as returning participants. ?

Again, we are going to pause the monthly Bombshell Business Third Thursday luncheon for the month of February to fit in this bootcamp, but will be right back on track with the luncheon and guest speakers for March and beyond.
