NBP72: Creating a Healthy Balance in Business and Life with Shelly Yorgesen
In today’s episode we talk about getting energized and motivated. Shelly Yorgesen discovered that every online business needs an online component. After leading LIVE Executive Networking Events for nearly a decade, it drove Shelly a little crazy that there is always very few women in the room. She set out to create an easier way for women, who are generally busy raising a family, running a business and all that life entails as a women, to connect with each other. Shelly spent a year learning how to make this dream a reality, and in December 2017, she opened The Veranda, an International Virtual Networking Experience for Women in Business. Her favorite successes are when women from one continent connect to women from another continent, solve problems, grow business and create not only business opportunities but also build lifelong friendships.
