THE POWER OF CONNECTEDNESS

"Only through our connectedness with others can we really know and enhance the self. And only through working on the self can we begin to enhance our connectedness to others." - Harriet Goldhor Lerner (Psychologist and Author)

Healthy relationship are the foundation for good emotional and mental health.

In any dynamic where social interaction leads to connectedness it is import that you feel worthwhile within yourself  but also that you feel that you can be truly worthwhile to others.

We all need to recognise that building healthy relationship is a co creative process. It is important to "Give" of yourself but also learn how to "Receive" from others and to do this with grace and dignity.

Javea-based woman, Ellen de Haar, an army life coach and counselor who also helps parents, adults and children, understands the importance of "connectedness" for good mental health.

"Almost everybody, not just people in the Military Army, suffer with emotional health issues from time to time," expresses Ellen.

"Everybody feels that something in the world has to chance if we going to survive and that is why I think connectedness is important these days!"


In business, being connected sometimes makes the difference between being successful or not in your enterprise. Connectedness builds a friendly and caring environment and when people care about you they will support your efforts and share their wealth.

Karin de Groot and her daughter felt the need to expand their connections and attended a CBWomen.com Networking event in Javea

"I went to a CBW networking event with my daughter and we had a lovely morning, explains the Javea-based business woman.

"I met some pretty interesting ladies and in a special way where we had to get to know each other in a short period of time (10 min )with some key questions. This was all new to us but very helpful. And before all of this networking we had a lovely breakfast. We will be there again!"

FEBRUARY 2015 * NETWORKING EVENT * JAVEA

Under cloudy skies with umbrellas in hand, 11 gorgeous women turned up to the Black Turtle to try their hand at interactive social networking "CBWomen-style".

We enjoyed our freshly baked croissants with butter and jam. There were also a variety of breakfast biscuits. We all had our cava with strawberry, fresh orange juice and of course coffee, cappuccino and a wide variety of teas.

Then it was down to business. Some gals remembered to bring their networking notebooks and I saw names and numbers being shared.

The Networking Questions of the Day was...

"What makes one person more "trustworthy" than another?

It was a tricky question but it really made us think about the character of "trust".  Here are some of the answers that were put forth.

1. If a person has a reputation of being an honest person - you can guess that they will be trustworthy as well.
2. If a person borrows money and returns it, then they are trustworthy.
3. If a person keeps eye contact with you and does not have strange body language - then they are more likely to be trustworthy.
4. If a person can keep a secret - then they are more trustworthy than someone who cannot keep a secret.
5. If you do not have a good feeling about a person, and your gut is telling you not to trust them - then they are mostly likely not trustworthy.
6. If a person is a braggart, self-absorbed and superficial - then are likely not to be trustworthy.
7. If a person shows too much curiosity about a subject without concern, they are likely not to be trusted.
8. If a person is just a genuine good person, then they are most likely a trustworthy person.

The event wrapped up on time at 1:00 / 13:00 with the traditional raffle and photo shoot.

Thank you to all who attended and I hope to see you all again, as I missed networking with two gals!! Next time!!

NETWORKING FOR PROSPERITY


The word "prosperity" means a successful, flourishing, or thriving condition, especially in financial respects; good fortune.

Weather you are networking for social or business reasons, you can have a very prosperous experience.

For women who are self-employed, networking is probably the most effective and least expensive marketing method to build business or a private practice, especially if the business is in your local area.

CBWomen-style of networking is not like any networking activity on the coast. There are no awkward moments where you do not know how to participate. There are no sharks mingling around or braggish bunnies.

In fact, you will have no time to be shy or bored as CBWomen networking events are engaging and insightful and the time just flies!

ATTENTION: BUSINESS NETWORKERS
For the business women who are attending the event on Saturday at the Black Turtle in Javea old town, at the entrance to the event (UPSTAIRS) will be sign up sheet for any woman who needs some RADIO PROMOTION on a local radio station. FREE.

There will also be a big table for displaying your business brochures. Just remember to pick them up again after the event so they do not get tossed.

There are some lovely gifts for the raffle - and all attending do get a complementary raffle ticket.

LIVE SOCIAL NETWORKING IS GOOD FOR YOU

After the last CBWomen Networking event – I felt fabulous, coming away with a high like all my brain was increasing its serotonin levels from so much positive feedback. I was “buzzing”.

Turns out that this is a super byproduct of living a socially networked life.

According to Health magazine, building better social connections can be good for your health.

You’ll be less likely to get sick.

In one well-known study, folks with more diverse social connections were less susceptible to colds than those who were socially isolated.

You may sleep better.

Being lonely leads to restless sleep, a University of Chicago study suggests: The lonelier you are, the more you toss and turn.

You’ll stay sharper.

Having strong social support may cut your risk of cognitive decline, according to several studies.

You could live longer.

People with stronger social connections were 50% more likely to live longer than those with weaker connections, a 2010 analysis found. That makes the impact of friendlessness comparable to that of smoking.

WHAT IS “AMERICAN-STYLE” LIVE SOCIAL NETWORKING?

Social media networking is a gigantic phenomenon with websites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn leading the world in the ways of meeting people on a global scale. However, there is nothing that can compare with meeting people face to face.

In January 2015 CBWomen.com Networking Events was launched as a revolution in social networking via live interaction. Following the principles of the American-style of social networking, CBWomen.com held its first event at the Black Turtle in Javea’s old town.

“I loved the 'American style networking exercises we did. It reminded me of Speed-Dating (not that I have ever been to a Dating Event !),” explains attendee and Javea resident Amanda O’Shea.

“It is good practice to get to know as much about somebody else in a short time with a few key questions.”

Research shows that social networking provides the most productive, most proficient and most enduring tactic to build relationships.

CBWomen Social networking events are for women who are new to the area and want to meet new friends or for women who want new contacts for their businesses or co-creators in projects, trips, events, etc – whatever the reason, LIVE social networking works. It is fun, easy and fast-paced with many laughs along the way.

You can register for a free membership online at the website – www.CBWomen.com and this will give you a regular newsletter full of interesting facts on relationship building and invites to the events.

We had great FUN and what a lovely group of Ladies.
I loved the 'American style networking exercises we did, it reminded me of Speed-Dating (not that I have ever been to a Dating Event !)
Good practice to get to know as much about Somebody else in a short time with a few key questions.

Greetings CBWomen!

"When you look on the bright side, place value on relationships and not material wealth, give to others, honor getting lost and following your passions, you’ll fall deeply in love with the life you have because you’ll see that you already have enough…" 
https://lestroisamies.wordpress.com/
I found that above quote while surfing the web. I hope you like it? I did :)

It somehow speaks wisdom by telling us that we all need to pay attention to the "value" that we place on our relationships.

I know many of us networkers at the last monthly networking event have already started to build better bridges with co operative ideas and resources.

I know I did - oh by the way - a group of us networking gals are doing a group art show and sale at the Black Turtle on the 19 of March - Father's Day - strangely enough! That is a little plug for the show :) But it does highlight validate the synergy of networking.

And Thank you to Amada O'Shea for her honest feedback. Really appreciate it!

The Next CBWomen events are ready and accepting reservations.
