Last month I attended the annual Enterprising Women Conference held in Miami. I was honored to have been one of the Enterprising Women of the Year Award recipients, selected by Enterprising Women Magazine, a national magazine for female business owners. What a treat to attend the Conference and meet so many talented, entrepreneurial women. Their stories and words of wisdom were truly inspirational.
My new friends ranged from Sandy, who successfully took over her late husband’s business in the male-dominated industry of agriculture, to Leslie, who recently launched her Washington D.C. Scandals and Scuttlebutt self tour app on iPhone. You can download Leslie’s app to learn about juicy scandals that have happened at prominent locations in the U.S. capital!
Everyone I met was intrigued by the fact that I was a Canadian swimwear retailer, and wondered how a business can survive selling swimwear in the snow. I filled them in on how Canadians cope with our long cold winters… by fleeing to the tropics! Ahh yes, makes sense.
At the Conference, I became known as “The Bag Lady” because each attendee received a Swimco collectable bag. I saw Swimco bags being toted all over the hotel and poolside. It’s a perfect beach bag, and was reported to be “the best gift in the conference goodie bag”!
Pick up a beautiful Shannon Wing collectable beach bag at any Swimco location for just $2, and the proceeds will go to Look Good Feel Better in support of women undergoing chemotherapy. Enjoy it on your next holiday, or use it every day for work, the gym, or grocery shopping. Thanks to Shannon Wing, the talented Artist who provided the colorful beach image on our bag.
