Entrepreneur to Discuss Living, Working With a Purpose

Entrepreneur Carrie Asuncion will discuss Dare to be Bold—Decide for Your Life at the upcoming meeting of the Central Coast California chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO).

The luncheon gathering will be 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 3, at San Luis Obispo Country Club. Guests are welcome to attend.

Preparing for 2018 can be exciting and daunting. Known for her interactive approach, Asuncion will facilitate attendees in identifying their purpose in what they do.

“Developing purpose is an important step to preparing for the coming year,” Asuncion said. “Living your purpose correlates to higher income and net worth.”

With years of corporate management experience and an advanced degree in psychology, Asuncion channels a passion for excellence to help entrepreneurs like herself find greater balance as they take their business to the next level and create a life they love.

The luncheon event will include opportunities for attendees to network with other business owners.

NAWBO Central Coast is a local chapter of a national organization dedicated to helping female entrepreneurs succeed.

Dawn Goonetilleke, president of the Central Coast Chapter, said the organization focuses on being purposeful, effective, courageous advocates for women business owners.

“We started this chapter to bring together women business owners who don’t want to apologize for being ambitious,” said Jamila Haseeb, Corporate Partners director and local business owner.

“Just seven months later, we’re attracting some of the most successful women business owners in the county, and having a blast every month learning how to grow together," Haseeb said.

Luncheon reservations are $29 for members, $39 for nonmembers. They should be made by 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 30, via the events page at www.facebook.com/NAWBOCCC/.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
