A question that I’m often asked when people find out the name of my organization, see me wearing my shirts or hear me stress the importance of “embracing the divatude” is “How to be a Diva?” I am asked that from women of all ages, backgrounds and ethnicities. My answer to them all is the same – your divatude starts from within and we all are divas – we just need to walk in our purpose.
Married life, children, a career, community service…that’s just the beginning of the list of responsibilities that I have. At some point not too long after my youngest son was born I realized I was just floating along. I was unhappy. I was doing “things” but nothing that truly brought me joy or a sense of purpose. I felt ashamed to admit it because I had a beautiful family, a great job and all the things that seemingly should have made me happy and fulfilled.

Divas With A Purpose hosted our first virtual conference last month. The Divatude Experience focused on different facets of our personal and professional lives. Registered participants will be receiving special offers from our speakers and sponsors and had the opportunity to connect with them one-on-one in our closed Facebook group.
This week we’ll be sharing the content and video recordings from The Divatude Experience.
Our first speaker was Patricia Lolo.
This weekend a dear friend entrusted me with the task of putting together a gender reveal party. This is totally outside my area of expertise but it was fun to get out of my comfort zone and do something for a wonderful diva!
A gender reveal party is a fun way to get close family and friends together and reveal to them the sex of your family’s newest addition. Typically it is held about 15-20 weeks into a women’s pregnancy.
This year Divas With A Purpose will be sharing a holiday gift guide with our readers. This guide will focus on shopping options available from direct sales divas and home-based businesses. If that’s you and would like to secure your spot in our holiday gift guide, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
An item must be received for review in order to showcase why it would make a great gift idea and for it to be featured in our gift guide.
