The Women’s Book
Today has been wholly eventful and craaaaazy busy. Yadumu Jewelry attended The Women’s Book Launch Event. Now let me tell you somethin’ somethin’ about the Women’s Book. It is an annually printed directory connecting all of the women-owned and operated businesses in the Columbus and Cincinnati metro area. Seasonally, they print a magazine highlighting some of the most powerful women in and around the Columbus area. Now that you have a little background, I can get into the dirty details and y’all will understand why I’m practically drooling right now!
Tonight was ridiculous! There were so many powerful women at the event tonight and my position as a volunteer had me smack dab in the middle (rubbin’ elbows even) with them. I met the founder of Cheryl & Co. Cookies (her company is single handed-ly responsible for my freshmen 15). Doneri met the CEO of Bob Evans’ wife! I met the VP of the Executive Board for Limited Brands.
And most importantly of all, the 2 ladies who pulled the whole event together and made magic tonight. Drum roll please!
Brilliant and Beautiful woman! She coordinated the event while still staying fly and looking as beautiful as ever!
And the woman of the hour: Takeysha Cheney
This is the woman, who 4 years ago had a vision of bringing professional women together. Fast forward to today and she has created a network of women that spans all of the previously mentioned ladies and more. This women is puttin’ in werrrrk!!! And she has further inspired me to keep up the hard work on this crazy idea called Yadumu Jewelry, because a few years ago the Women’s Book was just a crazy idea, but now it is a full fledged empire. I’m so proud of her! And I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to be involved with an organization such as hers! : D
So all gushing aside (I really do have girl crushes on all of these women though, lol), here’s a quick picture of what Doneri and I wore. It was a Little Black Dress Night.
