On the Up! Blooming Marvellous!

On the Up! Blooming Marvellous!

One month has gone by and there are eleven to go! The year is blooming nicely. It is a time for new beginnings - a time for moving forward and seizing opportunities.

We have heard so much about 'austerity measures' and how we must tighten our belts... It is time to loosen those belts just a little, to fill our lungs with fresh air so we can grow and blossom.

It was a pleasure to host a debate and speak with other inspirational women at the European Professional Women's Network. The subject of the discussion was 'La bella e la bestia – What now for Berlusconi’s women?' Italy may have financial issues even though it is Europe's third biggest economy but the image and role of women is antiquated and demeaning and great change is needed. I hope you enjoy my article.

Change happens in many ways and for many reasons. Life can throw unexpected and unwelcome circumstances our way but this can become a positive situation...

The Riviera Woman launched The Amber Club with Dani Carew and on Friday 27th January was our first get-together in Monaco. We want to motivate and encourage women to look at adversity as a way to start new chapters. Dani has written a summary of the meeting which you can read. Here are the details of the next get-together on Friday 10th February. And look out for special exciting Amber events being planned later this year!

Here is a personal message from Dani Carew telling us why she wrote the book Redefining Amber. Click to watch Dani's video.

There are many wonderful ways for women to network, European Professional Women's Network, The Amber Club are just two. Networking is excellent for bringing people together, sharing experiences and more importantly for making new friends... we all need them! What is so evident is that 'Women Need Women'.

Anne Naylor has graced The Riviera Woman for many years with her wonderful inspirational articles. She talks a great deal about her Wealth School. Her words are full of richness...

It was a pleasure to meet Nevia Togni, artist who shares her experiences of life in the circus, with her paintings.
