Have you heard of Entrepreneurial Loneliness?
I can tell you from my experience that going it alone causes a bottle neck, in life and in business. Oh, crap let's be real here. From my experience, it was less of a bottle neck and a lot more like sludge. Yucky, sticky, slow moving, dark, thick sludge.
- Delicious food
- Warm and friendly conversations
- Amazing take-aways to Up-level your business for the rest of the year
- A great night for all.
In the meantime, post your comments below so we can get to know more about one another!
When I first moved into the city I was very intimidated to work with and get out to networking with NYC women. I was from the subs and well, I felt like they may just eat me alive. Isn't it crazy the things our brains conjure up?
Of course, when I got out and started meeting these women, my fears were squashed. The silly brain stuff held me back until I faced it and proved it wrong – way wrong.
Believe it or not, we all have this stuff going on. Even the most successful woman who scares the bejeezus out of you, the one who has it all together (on the outside), the one you want to be like when you reach ‘that' level of success – yep – her too!
But, as soon as we make the decision to crack open the crummy, move past the fear, and step into our own brilliance, light, and SHINE, the fear has no choice to but to dissipate to nothing and you can move to the next level.
As a result of doing just that, I am now part of various networking groups, as well as hosing my own Live Events and Workshops and other live events in NYC.
Last month when I was invited to Host the Savor the Success NYC Live Mastermind Event, I was all in! What a great night, getting on stage, doing my thing, and celebrating with some really cool ladies.
Here is an Instagram post from @SavorSuccess:
“…She was a fantastic host for us, and I know you know… it starts with HOW YOU FEEL. Thank you for inspiring all of us, Patty… here's a virtual standing ovation!” ~ Angela Jia Kim
In December, I became a part of the Savor the Success community, founded by Angela Jia Kim. Being part of this amazing group of women has has been a wealth of great relationships, education and celebrating successes, all in the #GiveGiveGet philosophy that is promoted by Angela and embraced by all.
We meet offline at live events, continue our conversations online in the forums, and then, back again in person. These women are serious about growing business, and equally serious about supporting one another to prosper and work toward our dreams. I am loving being part of that. It's a place where I feel I truly fit in.
What is one thing your brain is telling you that may be holding you back? Comment below so together we can squash it and send it off for good!

The Inspiration System Express
Recently, at my “Specular” Event, I shared the Express Version of my new, step by step program, The Inspiration System. It's a rinse and repeat go-to for success every time you need to get something accomplished. This process is one that you can use in any area of your life or business.
I stumbled into creating it upon my journey to asking myself the bigger questions about my life and what I want my business to accomplish in the world. I wanted to share the 4 steps with you here. Go through them and post your goal date below in the comments. Keep in mind this system breaks things down by quarter. Look at the calendar and determine if you will choose your accomplishments for the end of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th quarter.
Hint: For example if it is the middle of February, you can choose the end of the 1st quarter giving you approximately 4 weeks or the end of the 2nd quarter giving you a bit more than a quarter, approximately 4 months.
Step 1: What Will You Accomplish?
Here's where we start.
- Make a list of the top three things you want to accomplish this quarter. I know, it is very likely that you will be pulled to list a long to-d0 of many items. For today, just for now, follow this and see how it works for you.
- Just pick three.
- Prioritize the three most important to least.
- Chose the top one. DONE.
Here's how to make this an easier process:
Sit quietly with this. Listen to yourself, rather FEEL your responses to the things that come to mind. We all have ‘reporting' mechanisms in our bodies, ie. sweaty palms, involuntary smiles, butterflies in our bellies. LISTEN to those signs your body is giving you and base those three items on the ones that are most important to you-full mind, body, soul. Not. Just. Mind.
Step 2: Who will Y0u Help?
- Once you have this one task, goal, accomplishment chosen, I want you to determine who will benefit from you completing it.
- Helpful question that will lead you to the answer are: Who will benefit and how? What will they receive?
- Will your family have more time with you?
- Will you generate more income to share a vacation with the ones you love?
- Will you have the ability to help people that are suffering in a way you know you can alleviate?
- Will your local community benefit by your accomplishment?
Step 3: How Will YOU Light up and Shine?
There is a ‘thing' that happens to us when we dig deep and do what we are called to do. When we follow our dreams we light up in the world in a very unique and bright way. THIS is the thing you should be focused on achieving. When you are on the best path for you, the accomplishments come faster and more smoothly.
The pictures in the above photo are are all of me in moments when I was authentically shining. They span the decades and when I look at them combined, I remember what is most important to me and what will allow me to step into my true self – each and every step of the way.
The first, my 13th birthday party (I had a disco ball!). The second, with my nephew when he was just a little guy, and the last this, past June, at my first Inspired Success Networking Event for Women Entrepreneurs.
- Here are a few ways for you to dig into that good stuff and find your true connection to your desired accomplishment:
- How does this accomplishment light you up?
- How does this make the inner most spectacular part of your self shine out for others to see?
- How will you feel when you are light up like a 3 watt bulb?
(4) When Will You Have it Completed?
To find a solution to something I want to accomplish, I love masterminding, brainstorming, mediating and using a spiritual approach. However, it's not until we actually take action that we will see results. We must put the foot to the pedal and get something done. Period.
Take out your calendar and determine the dates to have this accomplished. Earlier I mentioned that you determine what quarter you want to work within. But, now, I want you to give specific date or dates to this goal.
- What is your I Did It Date?
- Do you need to set smaller timeline dates to break this goal into more manageable tasks?
- Do you have enough time to commit to completing this within the quarter time frame you originally chose?
- Do you need to tweak. Now's the time to do it.
- Put it in ink!
- Commit to yourself – YOU are just as important (even more so) than anything else that goes into your calendar. Keeping promises to ourselves is empowering and leads to progress and success.
- Get Accountability on your side:
- Sometimes we need someone who can hold us to our promises. It's makes it easier when you know you have someone to report to -and – it's actually more fun that way.
- Here are two ways you can be held accountable for this Go-to System today:
Use this rinse and repeat go-to any time you need to get something off your mind, off your to-do list and into the world with real, live, energy for success!

At the end of the evening, as I gave my closing remarks at my Specular 2015 event, I noted how the saying, “It takes a village…” never meant more to me than at that very moment. From the birth of this idea to host a women's networking event in support of entrepreneurial women to when I reached out to colleagues for assistance and they extended a hand back to me, all the way to that evening when amazing women arrived in style to learn, share, and grow…the village converged around me and I had one milestone moment after the next.
These special moments in life happen and are made richer because of the people that come together in support of one goal. If you were with us, YOU did that. If you weren't we look forward to having you at the next one.
Enjoy the pics! The full gallery is below. Tag yourself or your friends, share on your social networks and comment. Let's continue this rich, open minded support to success, because…
As I always say, “You can do it all. But, you don't have to do it all, alone!” ~ Patty Rose
I'm super grateful for the amazing feedback I've received. Here are a few pics and stories.
Patty's Spectacular Event was super inspiring and just what I needed to start the year off with the perfect mindset…one of success!! I was super excited to network with all the ladies and to promote my business. But I have to admit I was a little intimidated at first. As soon as Patty spoke she reminded me to be proud of my business and to really “OWN IT”. The speakers after were motivating and the exercises that we broke into had so much positive energy from all the ladies! It was truly a blessing to be a part of this event because it encouraged me to set my business goals and to create a plan to accomplish them.
2015 is going to be my year and I have Patty to thank for it! Can't wait for the next one!!!

Hi Patty, I really enjoyed the Women’s Empowered Networking Event. It really made me more motivated to build my business and push toward my dreams. After attending your event I realized that networking is key. If everyone shares their ideas with each other it won’t necessarily hurt my business just help me make it a bit better. I loved the group sessions with different Q and A's and how everyone was either in the same boat as me or giving me wise advise. At the end of your event I left feeling much happier and even more devoted to my company. Thank you so much for this event because it truly was an inspiration for me.
