I Got it From My Mama

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” — Eleanor Roosevelt

I know the Women in Retail Leadership Circle (WIRLC) ladies have likely heard this quote before 🙂 Not only is it a strong set of words to live by, but it’s also a mantra the WIRLC team strives for as we grow our community.

We find inspiration every day from our supportive WIRLC community, particularly following the wonderful content and networking that took place at this year’s Women in Retail Leadership Summit! When I was thinking about a quote that stuck out in my mind for a little inspiration this week as Mother’s Day is just around the corner, the words above from our former First Lady jumped out in my mind. (In addition to being a WIRLC team favorite, it’s one of my mom’s absolute favorite quotes 🙂

This week, the WIRLC team is excited to attend the 40th Annual Outstanding Mother Awards in New York City, and honor this year’s fabulous honorees, including Chelsea Clinton, vice chair, Clinton Foundation; Jessica Simpson, entertainer, founder and CEO, Jessica Simpson Collection; Jan Singer, CEO, Victoria’s Secret; and Artemis Patrick, chief merchandising officer, Sephora.

“We’re thrilled to honor these four remarkable women as our 2018 Outstanding Mother honorees,” said Laurie Dowley, Chairman of the National Mother’s Day Committee. “In a time where it feels especially important to recognize the accomplishments and strength of women working both in and outside the home, these women help to inspire others and epitomize everything this award represents.”

At WIRLC, we want to honor all of the fabulous moms who kick ass each and every day.

To all of the wonderful women out there who are mothers, have a mom:), is best friend’s with a mama, we want to wish you a very happy and healthy Mother’s Day.
