Founded by Bianca Harris, WIPP (Women Inspire Passion and Purpose) is an all-star panel of talented female creatives, entrepreneurs and all-around bosses.
Last weekend, we attended the WIPP Conference and Social Event here in Toronto.
Founded by Bianca Harris, WIPP (Women Inspire Passion and Purpose) is an all-star panel of talented female creatives, entrepreneurs and all-around bosses. It was an insightful evening of conversation, motivation and words of wisdom.
The event was moderated by E!’s Chloe Wilde and featured a panel line-up that included: Mishael Morgan, from The Young and the Restless, Lola of ILUVLOLA, , celebrity nail artist Rita Remark, personal trainer Lyzabeth Lopez, Fashion magazine’s executive editor Randi Bergman and visual pop artist Maria Qamar of Hate Copy.
The event also featured an art exhibit, live painting and a nail bar.
The conversations and topics that centered around real life, and balancing work and being a woman really resonated with my mindset right now. In case you missed attending the event, I’ve shared below the lifestyle advice dished out by the panel at WIPP.
Everyone starts somewhere. There are no shortcuts to success.
It was refreshing to hear the stories behind some of the most successful people in this industry and where they were before they started (Lyzabeth Lopez talked about losing thousands of dollars in a con scheme). I could really relate to some of them which made it inspiring.
It’s important to know what drives you and to follow your passions.
It’s important to always know your “why”. Why do you want to do what you’re doing and what makes you passionate about it? If you don’t know why you are doing it, you will never grow and people will start to see through it. Maria pursued art even tho her parents didn’t think it could be a real career.
Lola worked hard to make herself known in a male-dominated industry. Mishael Morgan candidly summed it all up by saying, “follow your passions and the rest will follow.” Know the mission behind your business and what drives you, and everything else will come.
Define your own path to success.
Each speaker at WIPP had a very distinctive brand and style of their own. They’ve all blazed their own path. Instead of drudging it out on a career path she hated, Mishael Morgan decided to pursue acting despite the set backs.
This resonated with me because I am so hard on myself when it comes to the business of See Girl Work and I always wonder if I’m doing the right things to move the brand forward, and if I’m being strategic enough with my approach in scaling the company.
I would highly recommend this conference for working women looking for inspiration and motivation in getting your business started and your life sorted.
