Gale Thomssen February NAPW Tucson Chapter meeting is January 29th at Art Seeds on N. Campbell Ave. Dot Callihan will be our speaker on "Male and Female Balancing Traits in the workplace". Our society believes male traits drive success in the workplace and women who want to succeed in the workplace are told that we need to adopt male traits. However, all of my male-dominated workplaces were plagued by chaos, crisis management and poor performance. I spent my career fixing broken projects and operations which really wasn’t that difficult. As a result, I out-performed all of my male colleagues even though I was in traditionally hard core male roles in the construction industry. After many years I realized the secret to my success was that I was a woman. As soon as I applied specific female traits to my male-dominated workplaces, performance immediately soared. I teach women how their natural traits are both powerful and transformative to the workplace and that our success comes from being who we naturally are.

Are you looking for a unique business opportunity that has no restrictions, no upfront investment and no minimum monthly requirement and is not part of a multi-level marketing program? If so, then talk to Paulette at NYC Private Jeweler to learn about the referral program that allows you to earn commission based on the value of the pieces sold to the people you refer to NYC Private Jeweler. This program allows you to work wherever you are, simply send those people you know are looking for diamonds and diamond jewelry to NYC Private Jeweler. These referrals are registered with NYC Private Jeweler and then when a piece is bought, you will be notified. The NYC Private Jeweler site is a great place to start as you show people the beautiful diamonds and jewelry available, but there are many other pieces available which can only be viewed by contacting Paulette directly. You can do this by emailing Paulette paulette@nycprivatejeweler.com or by calling +1-917-658-7782 (New York) M-F 9am-2pm to discuss any questions you may have regarding inventory, buy or selling jewelry, or working on commission.
