Breakfast with Ita

Here at Boheem we like a bit of Girl Power.

Bright and early this morning Ann and I and an army of 1000+ women gathered to hear stories, thoughts and inspirations from Ita Buttrose. We were invited along by Paula Parsons from Bright Wealth - a new client of ours (herself an inspiring business woman!)

Ita spoke about her experience being an ambitious, working mother in the publishing industry during the 1970's. She has a passion for women's culture and issues which continue to face women in the workforce. She spoke of the importance of empowering women to think differently about themselves and their roles in Australian society.

Ita was eloquent, down-to-earth and definitely inspiring. The advice I took away from this morning was - 'Tough times never last, but tough people always do.'
