Today, one of our Board members came to speak at our facility. At first, I thought “ho hum”, until I received the invitation that included some detail on who exactly Hinda Miller is…
Business? Meh. JogBra? Now THAT sounds interesting! She even brought a prop to demonstrate where the idea for JogBra came from. She had me at ‘jock strap’!
Hinda is a very interesting woman who seems to have seen and done it all. She nicely wove the story of her personal and professional life into her presentation to us and then punctuated it with a connection to our company’s mission and values. I’ve included this link in case you’d like to read more about, but here’s what I got out of the presentation:
- Embrace YOU; be genuine; be true to yourself
- Anyone can be an entrepreneur – having family and friends to support “crazy” ideas (and money never hurts) is essential
- Have your list of traits that your partner in life must have – go after it. You’ll need him/her and vice versa
- Women are strong and belong
- Smile, laugh, stretch
That last bullet? We did a lot of that at her presentation!
