HOW IT BEGAN..
It all started as a dinner with 41 ladies and became a movement. Adeola, the founder of the GENX Ladies Platform, noticed a common conversation occuring among some of her friends, colleagues or clients mostly in their 40s and decided to find a solution.
THE GENX Ladies is a professional and community platform targeted to mostly multicultural women between the ages of 35 and 50+.
What does Adeola, the founder have to say?
When I came up with the idea of GENX Ladies specifically for women who are no longer in their 20s or early 30s, the idea sprung from wanting to provide a platform to help reignite forgotten dreams, provide resources and tools to launch and grow successful businesses and live a healthy and fulfilled life.
But this vision wasn’t as articulate as this, I wanted to have some women in their late 30s and above to come together for dinner and have some real and honest conversations on picking up forgotten dreams and pursuing it, health and our bodies after 40, building a successful career and business even when you feel you are one of the oldest or not as techy savvy in your workplace and industry.
I HAD NO IDEA IT WOULD HAVE THIS MUCH IMPACT!
That candlelight dinner in June 2016 has turned to several Annual GENX Ladies Brunch/Conferences, workshops and webinars, social and networking events and an international GENX Ladies Event.
I constantly get feedback from some of the ladies who attend our event about the impact it has made on them. Some ladies launched new businesses after stalling on it for several years, Some are healthier and making healthier decisions, some ladies returned back to school after taking a break to grow their families, some ladies reported they met their business partners at our events…and much more.
When I hear feedback and testimonies like this, it reassures me that I’m definitely on the right path and fulfilling one of my purposes here at such a time like this.
