Diana Brooks named a 2013 Influential Business Woman by South Florida Business Journal

September 13. If you have anything else to do on that date between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., and you’re a friend, client or fan of VSBrooks ADVERTISING, then I’m asking you to change your plans now because you’ll be partying with us. On September 13, you are officially invited to join me, along with the other South Florida Business Journal Influential Business Women, at a fantastic awards luncheon at The Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa in Hollywood, FL. 

Being an Influential Business Woman required that I had to express (eloquently) what influence means to me, what drives me in my career and what other women may glean from my experience. If you’re curious to know I define being an Influential Business Woman as:
How do you define an ‘Influential Business Woman’, and how do you believe someone becomes one?
An influential businesswoman is one who shows true passion and works hard to promote the causes she is interested in, whether in her career, home or community. She isn't afraid to take risks. She shows humility and compassion to her peers, mentors those seeking her advice and strives to make a difference in the world. To become an influential business leader, you must fight self-doubt every day, be fearless and always try to do what’s right.

If you had advice for women rising the ladder of business and influence, what might that be?
Be fearless. Success doesn’t wait for the timid. Fight to overcome the doubts about what you can do and how far you can go. It sounds corny, but believe in yourself. You have to be your own champion sometimes, until others see what you see. And whatever you are – be damn good at it and be consistently good at it. The world is filled with one-hit wonders. People want to know, “OK, that was great, but what’s next?”

Hope to see you there!
