One of the great things about having a blog with loyal readers is the opportunity it provides me to share some of the awesome things my friends and fellow Divas are doing. I've decided to devote this week to sharing some of the latest with you.

It is now on the shelves in Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy, (other retailers as well), and at Amazon, and The title is "Dance Off the Inches-Country Line Dance Video". I can't think of a more fun way to lose those extra holiday pounds. Thanks, Pam!

Do you know what Diva Wendy has been up to? I just finished reading an email from former client, friend and mentor, Ken McArthur. In it he lists the speakers he has lined up for jvAlert Live 2009 in Orlando. jvAlert Live is Ken's big marketing seminar that I used to plan for him during my former life as a meeting planner and he only invites the best of the best to speak here. Want to know who one of the FEATURED speakers is? You guessed it - our own WendyY! Check it out:

I was planning to attend anyway, but now that I know Wendy is going to be there, along with my friend Felicia Slattery, nothing could keep me away. Hopefully, I'll see some of you there as well! I guarantee it's a life changing experience! Just look at me!

And...a great new book that's a must have for any one who wants to hone their networking skills to build their business. I have known Carrie Perrien Smith for many years and she is an expert in the art of networking. Her latest book, "Currency: Striking Networking Gold in a Relationship Economy," is an absolute gold mine of information. Learn more about Carrie, her company Soar With Eagles, and her book - PSST!! Bev! I think she has all the makings of a Diva!
