Awura's October Reflection - a new chapter

Monthly reflections

In my monthly reflections on I will push myself to share an unfiltered review of my month. A look into the behind scenes of CWC without all of the (awesome) Inshot effects which we use (and love) in our Instagram Stories. Check out September's reflection here.

On October 1st I started a new chapter with Carly, Yennhi, Oboshie, Camila, Els, Monika, Charmaine and Shenelva: Creative Women Agency. With this agency we organize events focused on community for companies, organisations and brands which focus on women.

The women in CWA are (or have been) a part of Creative Women Collective and breathe creativity, community and ambition. The idea for the agency was born during a month of saying a lot of no to the world, and a lot of yes to myself (one of the best months of 2018 TBH!).

Creative Women Agency is here, and all the butterflies which are a inevitable when starting something new are here too.

As I'm building the agency together with the team, I keep on bumping into the following thought:

The growth of your business is parallel to your personal growth.
— Awura Abena Simpe

Basically, if you don't grow, the business won't either. How confronting is this?! Excuse me while I process this… See you next month.
