Women’s Networking Luncheon with Edward Jones


Edward Jones Women’s Networking Luncheon

Today I had the pleasure of attending a very nice women’s networking luncheon with my longtime friend, Elizabeth Asbill.   Elizabeth and I met many years ago through the Cary-Kildaire Rotary Club.  We became fast friends and our offices are right down the street from each other in Cary.   She reached out to me a few weeks ago about a Women’s Networking Luncheon that was being hosted by her firm, Edward Jones.  Of course I wanted to go!  I invited my good friend, Tia Coppus to come along.

Tia also knows Elizabeth through Rotary.  The event was held at the NC Alumni Center on Centennial Campus (it is beautiful if you have never been!).  The room was full with over 100 ladies from all different backgrounds and walks of life.  The guest speaker was Debra Fine, author from Denver, Colorado.

She was a very engaging speaker and spoke on the topic of “Small Talk and How to Start a Conversation”.   During the dessert part of the program, she challenged us to step out into the foyer for dessert and to meet at least one new person and find out something we have in common.  She gave a prize to the two ladies who connected the best with the most unique common trait.  I had the opportunity to meet a nice lady named Lorri Sampson of Mid-Atlantic Business Management & Consulting, LLC.  We connected over our love for Nine West shoes (I had on a pair of Nine West heels in cream and she has the same pair at home in blue).  We were able to share our commonality with the group but apparently liking shoes wasn’t the most unique in the room so needless to say we didn’t win.  🙁

Thanks to Elizabeth for a fun time and I enjoyed being there!  Thanks also to Lois Cozart for the dress I purchased from her consignment boutique, My Girlfriend’s Closet.  I always get a lot of compliments when I wear this dress!

Breakfast from PayChex

Yesterday we had a great breakfast delivered to the office from our new contact & referral partner of Paychex Payroll Services.  Thanks to Liz Gross for stopping by the office to say hello and bringing us a very delicious breakfast from the Famous Toastery in Morrisville.  Liz and her husband, Joe, are both employed by PayChex and we love working with them.
