Washington native Candice Nicole of Candice Nicole PR, along with registered nurse, Meisha Amia, started Women Who Hustle back in 2015 as an organization developed to emPOWER women, encourage women to keep their heads held high, inspire, and celebrate women who hustles everyday with a smile on their faces.
The savvy businesswomen started 2017 with their inaugural event: The Goal Getter Brunch. Women Who Hustle hosted approximately 40 young women from around the metropolitan area specializing in various industries at the Goal Getter’s Brunch at Cuba Libra; the culturally authentic Cuban culinary establishment in downtown D.C. The industries represented by the attendees were nursing, communications, finance, entrepreneurs, along with college students aspiring in the mentioned feilds. The afternoon began with introductions of everyone in the room, and the debut of the brand’s very own journal. The Goal Getter journal is a mixture of a traditional planner and notebook; complete with a calendar and “brand dump” for your personal thoughts, to-do lists, quarterly goals, etc. It’s made to be customizable to fit your unique needs while matching your wave pattern of productivity.
The event continued with goal sharing throughout the private room in the aesthetically cultural space, where each volunteer shared their hopes for the quarter. Before sharing began, Candice acknowledged how important it is to set goals, but also the importance of setting “reasonable, responsible resolutions” in a time frame that won’t grow to be overwhelming.
The remainder of the afternoon was posed with questions and self assessments of your current stage, and where you could be if you knew the things you know now.
