Women’s Business Alliance

January 20, 2014 by Phil Major

Event Date: 
Fri, 02/07/2014 - 11:30am

East Parker County Chamber of Commerce Women’s Business Alliance will host the monthly first Friday luncheon Feb. 7 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Tucker Red’s restaurant, 4971 East I-20 Service Road N., Willow Park, TX 76087.
Guest speaker Brenda Harkins facilitates personal and professional growth and success. For more than 20 years she has helped people discover their potential, boost their performance, increase their skills, strengthen their relationships, and understand themselves and those with whom they live and work.
“Contrary to old-school management philosophies, individuals, teams and organizations excel by maximizing their strengths, not by fixing their weaknesses. Yet society is fixated on ‘fixing’ people, trying to make them well-rounded so that they can fit in anywhere. The truth is we are all gifted in different ways, and trying to mold us into cookie-cutter shapes is contrary to our very nature,” said Harkins.
As President of TRANSFORM International, Harkins inspires, motivates and challenges others to move forward. She is a public speaker, writer, mediator, life coach, and CoreClarity facilitator. Brenda has equipped hundreds of people to achieve their goals and maximize their potential by helping them recognize their talents, develop their strengths and identify their core values.

EPCCC Membership Luncheon

October 30, 2013 by Jennifer Retter

Event Date: 
Wed, 11/13/2013 - 11:30am - 1:00pm

“How to Succeed in Business When All You Really Want to Do Is Find a Cave and Hide” is the topic for the East Parker County Chamber of Commerce’s membership luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 13 at New River Fellowship, 3252 E. I-20, Hudson Oaks.
Speaker Mark Brown is the former Co-CEO of Pre-Paid Legal and travels across the country speaking and motivating independent businessmen and women to achieve their goals and go beyond.
Brown retired from the corporate end of the business world two years ago. The program will be a subject that’s especially interesting to anyone in business during these changing times. He will give sound advice on how a business owner can best tackle the difficult task of self motivation.
“Nobody feels like swinging for the bleachers 100 percent of the time; things happen in our personal lives – parents die, children get sick or have problems, sometimes husbands or wives leave, or you get sick,” Brown said. “For business owners, whatever personal problems you may have, business must go on. The question is – how do you make your business succeed even when you aren’t feeling like driving it down the road to greatness?”
