BALTIMORE — Every woman and every person she’s connected to deserves a life that is fulfilling, full of love, purposeful and full of abundance.

Why shouldn’t we live an excellent and exciting life filled with the people and experiences we absolutely love? What normally keeps us from these dreams are defined in our daily practice, lack of personal vision, and strong belief that we deserve to experience life bountifully — limiting mindsets.
Living a fully liberated and purpose filled life is not exclusive to one group of people, or only for certain people or personality types over the other. We truly determine the life, careers, love, adventures, and experiences we want in our lives.
Outside of circumstances, we are born into, the day we recognize that we want different or desire change is the day we decide the direction of our lives. Every day is an opportunity to decide and create a life worth living. Personal vision, a growth mindset, and great strategy are essentials for realizing the life and success we define as our personal goal.
-Cassandra N. Vincent, Creator of The Vision+Strategy Brunch
Last month women gathered in Baltimore to learn, connect, and grow together over brunch, networking, and many memorable moments. This was not just brunch, but an intentional gathering of women for the purpose of encouraging personal growth. The Vision+Strategy Brunch, curated by Baltimore native and businesswoman, Cassandra N. Vincent is a brunch series created where women are highly encouraged to connect with one another and share ways to live their most purposeful and fulfilled lives.

For many of the women, networking, entrepreneurship, ownership, and discovering their life’s purpose are at the top of their lists for attending the Vision+Strategy Brunch (VSB), which was established in 2016. Vincent created the brunch gathering with the mission to empower and inspire women to define their success based on the idea that each woman was divinely created for a great purpose. With changing economies, the increase in the number of women pursuing entrepreneurship, and the future of learning drastically changing — personal growth and development opportunities in various forums are sought after.
By definition, personal growth ‘covers the activities involved in improving awareness and identity, talent development, building human capital and facilitation of employability, and enhance the quality of life and contribute to the realization of dreams and aspirations.’ The Vision+Strategy Brunch held on Saturday, March 25, 2017, hosted women from as far as New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, as well as the Washington, D.C. and Maryland area.
Learning and growth opportunities among women are in demand, particularly African-American women [the fastest growing group of business owners and entrepreneurs growing more than 322% since 1997, according to a June 2015 Fortune article.] The Vision+Strategy Brunch (VSB) series is designed to answer the demand by providing a space where women are empowered with knowledge to support their individual goals. The VSB gathering featured a networking session, empowerment talks, and a panel of women who shared their passion and the tools used to live purpose driven life.
A purpose driven life for many women who attended the VSB are investing in themselves because this group is “significantly impacted by factors including fair pay, fair promotion, and family-friendly policies in the workplace.” Vincent’s mission with the Vision+Strategy Brunch is to bring the answers to this group by bringing expert knowledge and creating a safe sharing space for women. Women who attend a VSB gathering will walk away with not only meaningful connections, a bold personal vision, but also strategies for executing her goals and realizing her vision.
March’s VSB panelists included Interior Designer Neffi Walker, Business Development Consultant LaCheryl Jones, Real Estate Investment Coach & Entrepreneur, Kendra Barnes and featuring Chianti Lomax, Certified Coach + Chief Happiness Curator of The Happy Pop-U, and panel moderator Tameka J. Harris, Creative Curriculum Designer.
Sponsors of the March 2017 Vision+Strategy Brunch included: Cover Paige Creative, Cara Paige for (Event/Venue Styling), TEN Shopping, Ven and Rose, ColourPop Cosmetics, Behind The Pen Web Designs, The Good Body Stuff, Black Foodie, Ivy’s Tea Co., Dj Soul (VSBrunch music mix cd), The Art of Suga, Lovely Lavender Plus, Pretty Entrepreneur, and The Liberated Heart.
