The Lowdown: WCR in San Antonio
On January 10th your Women's Council membership packed the house at The Well as they started off the year focusing on themselves. As we all know, you can only be as good to others as you are to yourself. So, on Jan 10th we held a “Be Well at The Well” event. A panel of members shared tidbits on the dynamic changes they had made to overcome obstacles encountered in their lives and how they focused instead on improving their own health and well-being. Missy Stagers spoke on eating to live vs living to eat and about food provenance and farming. Cathy Heshmat defined wellness and focused on getting tested so you will know your numbers. Mandy Pilgrim shared her story about overcoming fear and leveraging your mindset to maximize your balance and drive. Finally, Melanie Harwood focused on how Pranayama Meditation and Yoga can help you and then closed our session with a relaxing breathing technique. This event brought in 35 first time attendees and was very well received.
On Jan 31st our network had the honour of hosting the Women's Council of REALTORS® National Executive Team for a dinner and networking event down on the river. It is a rare occasion when our members have the opportunity to not only spend time with, but also to have the full attention of most of the 21 fabulous line members that shape, and are the essence of what Women's Council can do for you. This was a members-only event that had more than 40 in attendance to enjoy dinner at Rita’s on the River and dinner was followed by some fun at Howl at the Moon.
On Feb 9th and 10th, many of our Executive Team attended the Women's Council of REALTORS® Texas meetings at the Hyatt Regency in Austin. I was happy to see that a few of our members also decided to come to find out what happens at the state level meetings and to of course network and find referral partners from other areas in Texas.
Your local network has been hard at work to bring together a team approach to help you establish and meet your goals with a Health and Wellness Fair at The Well. This event on February 22nd is open to all and will be in session from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm to give everyone some flexible time for busy schedules. Drop by for health checks, demonstrations, break-out sessions and a room full of vendors that include, among others, a chef, med spa, farmer etc. who will provide you with valuable information.
This event is FREE for members who register by the 20th on Eventbrite. Here is the price list.

On March 7th the theme of wellness continues with a Financial Wellness event. We are going to address the new tax laws and how you may wish to make some changes in your business to capitalize on them. You will also learn financial steps that you should be taking in your personal life to prepare for retirement and financial freedom, and much more!
