Keeping You In the Know- August 2014

I don’t know about you but I’m so glad to see the weekend. A sistah is tired and needs a moment to decompress as I have a busy weekend ahead of me. There are a few things buzzing at the moment and I want to ensure that you’re well informed.  So follow me, Ok.

  •  This Saturday, I will be accompanying our 2014 Mother’s Day Spa Package winner Natasha during her pampering session at Msprity Enterprise. I understand she’s in for a real treat so I’m excited to witness her face after her session. While there, I will be snapping a few pictures and interviewing the owner of Msprity Enterprise, Cynthia.  Be on the lookout for the interview but in the meantime read the back-story behind Natasha wining the Spa Day, here it is.  
  • If you’re following us on Facebook you know that we’ve been posting for the last couple of weeks our upcoming September Gathering- “Black Women and Friends- The Good, The Bad, The Ugly and the Lack thereof”, facilitated by yours truly. There are varying views on what it means to be a friend in our adult years. Some find friendship easy to maintain and make new ones while others find it daunting and not worth the energy. Friday, September 19th @ 7:30 PM you will hear it all and so if you haven’t RSVP’d or paid your ticket here’s your opportunity to do so. Since posting, I can already tell that this is a hot button item. You can rest assure that the discussion will be nonstop, thought-provoking, igniting a number of emotions.  RSVP here

    Call to Action: We put out a call for 2015 Gathering topics and speakers. If you have a topic of interest you’d like for us to discuss or you’re interested in being a guest speaker email us at We are all eyes and ears. 

    We’ve also posted our ongoing efforts for the Mama Knows Best Mentoring Initiative. We have joined forces once again to host Mama Knows Best Part II.  Like the first one, this one is free so I encourage you to RSVP in advance. If you missed the first one, you’ll be mad you’d missed Part II.  Bottom Line- This mentoring program is geared toward African American who are looking for direction or support in a variety of areas as health and wellness, entrepreneurship, money management, career development education and much more. We still have opportunities available for mentors, mentees or both.  Sign up here.
  • BOND’s board will be meeting, Monday, Aug 18th to discuss the way forward for 2015 and beyond. We have some exciting topic s on the agenda that will positively impact you as a member, potential member or supporter of BOND Inc. We hope to bring you along for the ride because BOND is going places and we hope you will tag along.
 Call to Action: We put out a call for folks interested in being apart of BOND’s growth for 2015 and beyond. This is your opportunity to share your gifts and talents. As a member of the sisterhood you will have the opportunity to take part in a number of initiatives, be a part of something bigger than yourself, network with prominent business owners and organizations from in and around the community, gain additional skill set you can add to your professional resume and feel of sense of “paying it forward” for your efforts. There are a number of opportunities for you to share your expertise.
