Event Recap: The Single Wives Weekend By Koereyelle
The 2nd Annual Single Wives Weekend returned to Atlanta to host ladies from around the country for 3 days of empowerment, exciting workshops & introspective dialogue. Topics ranged from seduction and spirituality to business, finance, love and relationships! Since we believe it takes a well-rounded wife to truly find happiness and success in marriage, our goal was to offer a variety of speakers with a wealth of experience and expertise to share:
Although there were many life changing aha moments, the top 5 lessons learned during Single Wives Weekend were:
#1 You can’t run from your past
Until you are ready to be completely honest with yourself, uncover your past and heal your hurts, you will continue to experience painful situations. Once you realize that you can’t run from your past, it will be easier to find a way to embrace it and use it to create a happier, healthier future. Every single thing you’ve experienced is part of your story.
#2 Treat your man like a dog
How on Earth can you be so excited to see your puppy after a long day, but get an attitude when your man gets home? Treat your man with the same love, affection and excitement as you do your dog. Forgive him just as easily as you would your puppy instead of holding grudges and letting anger linger.
#3 Wealthy people don’t work for people.
By wealth, we mean living a freedom based lifestyle, doing the things you love! Wealthy people don’t depend on anyone for their lifestyle and successful people always have multiple streams of income! If you truly want to be your own boss, you have to find ways to profit from your passion. With a little time and creativity, you can create several income increasing opportunities!
#4 Always be open to opportunities
You never know where your next contract, collaboration or connection could come from! Approach each day with an eagerness to meet someone new and embrace new opportunities! A simple way to show that you are open is by smiling and striking up a simple conversation! Find something in common and always begin the conversation by asking how you can be of service to them!
#5 Marriage won’t make an unhappy person happy
We’ve heard it before, but hearing it from happily married wives confirmed it for us! Marriage is not magic and it won’t transform an unhappy single woman into a happy wife! In order to find true happiness in a mate, you must first find it in the mirror! By finding your passions, pursuing your dreams and having goals other than marriage, you are increasing your chances of a successful union. Fall in love with your life because a woman turned on by her life is irresistible to the world!
Single Wives Weekend was designed with YOU in mind! The weekend began with the Single, Sexy & Direct Seduction class and opened with special guest Deya “Direct” Smith, Author of Touch Yourself: 30 Ways to Boldly Live, Love and Let Go. Smith discussed overcoming adversity & owning her past to improve her future. Then, Harley Jackson spiced up the night and got us on our feet with her signature Seduction School WERKshop, where she showed guests how to walk and talk with confidence.
On Day 2, The Single Wives Club hosted their BYOB (Be Your Own Boss) Business Conference at the historic Taylor-Brawner Hall. Attendees were engaged in personal & professional development topics related to business development. Founder, Koreyelle DuBose, focused on empowerment during her Get Your Mind Right: Creating a Winning Mindset segment. Financial strategies & credit repair resources were also provided by credit guru Arnita Johnson of Luxurious Credit during the Credit Secrets Every Single Wife Should Know segment. The day continued with Jerri Evans discussing transitioning into a healthy lifestyle. Precious Johnson aka “Atlanta’s Olivia Pope”, completed the summit with her Look Pretty, Be Smart WERKshop. Johnson shared the critical questions that should be asked when networking. Attendees also enjoyed a full catered lunch, vendors, gift bags and power networking opportunities.
To close the weekend, The Wives Society mentors hosted the Big Hat Brunch where they shared the Business of being a wife. The 2014 Clair Huxtable Award recipients, Carla Stephens of Tru Entertainment and Ronnie Tyler of blackandmarriedwithkids.com, were honored for their ability to create a balanced life as both a successful entrepreneur and a happy wife. The day was accented with women-to-women advice regarding an array of topics featured in the segment, “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly”, which was designed to educate and empower women regarding family matters and the role as a wife.
