For two hours, NYC power women networked, exchanged ideas (and business cards) while enjoying Ravenswood’s new wine: Zen of Zin. Paul Gardner of Ravenswood was an excellent wine host and made sure all the guest’s glasses stayed full in the absolutely beautiful setting of the internationally famous The World Bar in Trump World Tower. Everyone was excited to meet the world-renown author of the best selling "Secrets of the Alchemist Dar": Michael Stadther whose amazingly beautiful book includes the treasure hunt for $2 million in Aaron Basha jewels. Ceslie introduced the evening's underwriters and presented Jen with a gorgeous Tiffany & Company engraved crystal award. More about the November 2006 honoree Jen Groover: One of the highest compliments a woman can receive is from her peers, and the Momentum Award is about recognizing women who have gained momentum in their personal and business lives and continue to mentor and set a strong positive example for other women in business and consumers. Here’s what other respected entrepreneurial women had so say about Jen and also their advice: Jodi A. Hutchinson, founder of Darshan Beauty:
“Jen Groover exudes confidence, enthusiasm and passion. From speaking with Jen, it is quite apparent she has set her priorities, aligns herself with people seeking similar goals, has a PhD in the art of balance, and is willing to share her experience. Ceslie asked Jodi how she thinks the philosophies of women in business differ from men: "As a generalization, men and women's business philosophies differ in how they define success, power and themselves. A strong woman may innately tap into her personal power, learn to transform it into self-empowerment and later assist others to gain empowerment. Some men, may chase power, control the power, and eventually think they have conquered the power. Checkmate!" said Jodi.
Regina Furphy, founder & c.e.o. of Gourmetibles:
"I feel Jen Groover is an amazing business woman and role model. I love that she believes and shares her thinking of always saying 'what if?' and 'why not?' I appreciate and value that she wants to help other entrepreneurs as myself. She is someone who doesn't just talk about it, she is more than willing and able to help, using the lessons she has learned in all of her business ventures." Ceslie asked Regina for a valuable lesson she learned while starting her own company, "The most valuable thing I have learned while starting my own business is to trust myself. I have been most successful and creative when I choose to believe in myself and my choices. It is important to listen to yourself and trust yourself, there will always be people that disagree with you and don't believe in you. Chances are they don't believe in themselves. When looking at successful people, no matter the field, they almost always have an incredible amount of confidence, drive and even attitude. They create their own successes and magnificent lives." said Regina.
Stacey Tucker, founder of Stacey Lu Confections:
"Jen is incredibly inspirational. Especially because I am expecting a baby in April and she gives me hope that I can have a successful business and be a great mom." Ceslie asked Stacey for a valuable lesson she learned while starting her own company, "I can't do it alone!! I thought I could and that just caused unnecessary suffering. Once I started accepting the help of others, my business blossomed." said Stacey.
