#BalanceforBetter is the Theme for International Women’s Day 2019
Since I started Happy Human Pacifier and Inspiring Mompreneurs I have worked with so many amaaaazing women…. many more than I could fit into the picture above.
And what always astounds me is how strong women are and the challenges they are able to overcome.
So I’m taking a moment today to Thank each and every one of you,
- the wonderful women in my friendship circle
- the wonderful women who I’ve featured on my sites
- the wonderful women who’ve sent me guest posts
- the wonderful women who have supported me in my blogging journey
- the wonderful women who inspire me daily
- the wonderful woman who raised me
What I’m doing to create a Gender-Balanced World
I find women to be supportive, encouraging, inspiring, nurturing and brilliant.
Which is why I’ve made it my business to uplift and promote women (Moms in particular) and I do that with my three websites.
I know someone else who has made it her business for to do the same. Gwen Serrotti founded Xtraordinary Women in Cape Town 12 years ago and it has grown from strength to strength.
Gwen runs Networking Events to promote women in business. She now has 3 Chapters, each with their own Chapter Leader.
- Robyn Lambrick of Word on the Street runs the Coastal Chapter.
- Erika Kruger of Soma Sense runs the Helderberg Chapter.
- Daniel Coetzee Therapeutic Energy Healer runs the Holistic Chapter.
I’ve been attending Robyn Lambrick’s monthly breakfast meetings for a while and was very excited when she contacted me early in January to ask if I’d be her Guest Speaker on 12th March. What fun!
I’ve been meaning to join as a Member for a while and this honour definitely gave me the final push I needed.
I thought member benefits were simply discounts on events. Wow, was I wrong! When you join as a member Gwen gives you access to heaps of benefits I didn’t know exist. I haven’t even worked through the entire list of member benefits yet but you can find a taste of them here:

I am really happy to have aligned myself with Xtraordinary Women which is why I feel it’s very apt that this International Women’s Day I’m working on the final touches of the talk I’ll be delivering next Tuesday.

Well… I’d best get back to the final preps for my talk next week. All that’s left to say is…
Thank you so much Lauren for the amazing shout out! I am truly honoured that you chose today to showcase Xtraordinary Women. We are also very honoured to have you as a Member as you do incredible work supporting women.
Thank you for all you do! You are truly an Xtraordinary Woman.
Aw, Thanks for the compliment Gwen. You are also an Xtraordinary Woman and deserve this honour.
Fab post. It is going to be awesome.
Sorry I won’t be there for Jenny Morris next month. Thanks for inviting me to Xtraordinary Women. X
Thanks Ma. Absolute pleasure! Glad you’re enjoying the networking breakfasts as much as I am. Wonderful to have you with me.
