Croydon Damsels in Success officially launched 10 days ago with an amazing ‘Live the Dream’ event at the Croydon Conference Centre. I apparently have set a record for having more people show up than were registered, luckily there was enough cake!

It was really fantastic to stand in front of a room of women who want more out of life …and are prepared to do something about it. The energy was brilliant and even the fire alarm going off (several times) didn’t affect the mood we had created. You may have seen some of the postings on Facebook or you may have been there. I can’t wait to see how this group is going to grow and prosper over the coming months.

The Damsels in Success theme for next month is ‘Making Miracles’ and the Croydon meeting will be on 11th July. Miracles are happening all around us, but most of the time we don’t notice them because we are too busy tied up in our worries, stress and general overwhelm. The Book of the Month will be ‘Miracles Now’ by Gabrielle Bernstein. She says ‘Happiness is a choice you make….each time we make this shift and choose happiness, we experience a miracle.’The Croydon launch felt like a miracle to me as I had visualised having 40 women in the room that day and sure enough they came, despite only having 34 guests registered!

You can book your place on the July meeting over at this page: Members and first time guests come free.

Before we meet on 11th, Damsels in Success are hosting the Women Inspiring Women Awards in Birmingham. There are some very inspiring women on the shortlist and you can see their stories and vote over here:

And we’d love you to be there in person to support those inspiring women at the award dinner. There is also a bonus event in the afternoon. To find out more about all that head over to:
