During the Capital Region’s first Northern Virginia event, members from Frederick, MD, Fredericksburg, VA and everywhere in between, met for casual networking followed by a presentation on “Mastering the Entrepreneurial Mind: Leading Change that Changes the World” from Amita Shukla, CEO of Vitamita. Amita started her presentation by describing what makes an entrepreneur successful and how you can harness those traits in your day-to-day life. We also discussed the 1D 2D 3D Mind Framework and how we use all three states in our lives.
We then answered three questions about ourselves: 1.) what we enjoy in our spare time, 2.) what are our strengths and weaknesses, and 3.) what is something that causes us stress. We reflected on these questions and how they relate to the 1D, 2D, or 3D state of mind. Most importantly, no one state of mind is enough, and all of them are necessary to master in order to learn and grow in your personal and professional life.
Participants enjoyed the opportunity to meet fellow WIB members and discuss the salient points of Amita’s presentation. Amita’s experiences and advice are also in her book, “Enduring Edge: Transforming How We Think, Create and Change”. The event space was donated by Greenberg Traurig in Tysons Corner, and we thank them for their support in hosting this event.
