Garden City, NY (PRWEB) August 28, 2012
Members and guests of the Los Angeles Local Chapter came together for a networking breakfast meeting at Factors Deli. Extra tables and chairs had to be requested to accommodate all who attended the August 15th event. Attendees were treated to an informative presentation by Ruth Klein, Author/Speaker/CEO of The Marketing Time Source, who kept their attention with tips and advice on finding that elusive but important balance between work and family.
NAPW Los Angeles Local Chapter President Ruth Garcia-Corrales welcomed the members and guests to the breakfast, remarking along with other members, on the wonderful mix of women who were present. From the colorful outfits they wore, to their eclectic nationalities, to their varied professions, there was a wonderful feeling of unity in the room.
If we could see it, Im sure there really was a rainbow aura glittering above us in that room. It was member Daisy Marks who used that word to describe the unity we were, said Chapter President Ruth Garcia-Corrales.
One by one, members and guests briefly introduced themselves, sharing the passion and commitment they have for their professions with all. After introductions were made, Ruth Klein got up to speak and immediately captured the attention of the Los Angeles Local Chapter members and guests.
Capped by Ruth Kleins riveting talk, we were, by each other and by Ruth, spiritually and practically touched, moved, inspired, maybe even shifted, and definitely empowered!, said the Chapter President.
A Branding Strategist and Productivity Coach, Ruth received her Master in Spiritual Psychology from Santa Monica University. Ruth assists entrepreneurs by bringing their gifts to the world through branding, marketing, and publicity, helping them to make the money they deserve. Ruth mentioned her upcoming seminar titled, Charging What Youre Worth and Getting It!
Ruth began her presentation by talking about stress, something most women in the audience were able to identify with. Stress is also the subject of two of her six published books.
Number one and two on the list of what affects women the most are inextricably combined: stress, theres too much of it, and time, there isnt enough of it, said Ruth, who noted that both negatively affect womens health. In fact, she said, women suffer 80% more heart attacks than men.
The presentation was informative and interactive and NAPW Lost Angeles Chapter members and guests had the opportunity to talk about the stresses and challenges in their own lives. Problems such as communicating with others, the challenge of dealing with children and their busy schedules, rebellious teens, and financial issues were all touted as top stress inducers. Ruth then pointed out how women are often reluctant to ask for help.
Even lawyers, even doctors, even I, who used to think I could do everything myself and know everything, now, realizing that very issue, I always asks for help. Assistance is always one request away, she told the crowd.
Ruth then spoke about sabotage and the many ways people play the saboteur by procrastinating, taking on more than they can do.
We get stuck and overwhelmed from all that. We dont ask for help; the list goes on and on, she said.
Members shared some of their thoughts on managing stress. Daisy Marks talked about how the new hi-tech world is the new stressor and Lisa-Catherine Cohen quoted Dr. Phi who said, You cant give what you dont have.
To help deal with all of lifes stresses Ruth suggested to the audience that they use percentages to help them de-stress: 30% me-time, 50% family, and the rest is spent on work. Those percentages, of course need to be flexible.
It is a balancing act, but if we can do it carefully, stress is reduced and everyone is happier, healthier, and easier going, said Ruth. Notice who youre hanging out with, and rather than the blamers and shamers, the poor-me victim-thinkers, the angry grudge-holders, choose instead to hang with positive, successful people! Like the members of NAPW! said Ruth.
To wrap up, Ruth invited everyone to join her for a picnic at the second-last summer concert on Santa Monica Pier August 30that 6pm. Bring chairs, pillows, blankets, food , and drink (plastic only, no glass containers allowed and no alcohol).
