During the month of June, Dress for Success joins the world in celebrating marriage!
While the tradition of June weddings dates back more than 2,000 years, it is not the bridal-bliss type of marriage that Dress for Success is now honoring. During this sixth month of the year, we encourage our women to marry their personal passions to their professional dreams and create a life-long career that they will love!
That is why I am thrilled to present our exclusive interview with the iconic Sylvia Weinstock, whose passion for baking led her to build a sweet empire that today represents the pinnacle of confectionary luxe. Also this month, we’ll hear from a small business owner who found her passion for affordable wedding planning later in life, but didn’t let “cold feet” stop her from saying “I Do” to her entrepreneurial dream.
Wedding puns aside, it truly warms my heart to bring you this issue of the Dress for Success Blog. As CEO of this organization, I have the privilege of going to a job everyday that I absolutely love. The joy and fulfillment that my career brings me is a gift that I hope every woman will give to herself. When we do what we love, we are more willing to do it with excellence, enthusiasm, and endless energy. That alone may be the greatest proof point for my belief that love is the universal key to success.
As you read through the posts in this edition of our blog, I encourage you to search your soul and find the type of work that would lead you to your professional bliss.
Close your eyes, open your heart, and listen closely to your spirit. If you hear your personal passion whispering “Will you marry me?” I hope that your professional goals will enthusiastically answer, “YES!”
