Your Way Global Women’s Conference Set to inspire Global Post-Pandemic Success This November – UK Business News

Your Way Global Women’s Conference Set To Inspire Global Post-Pandemic Success This November

October 11, 2021
International Business Leader and TEDx Speaker Bernie Davies is looking forward to this November’s ‘Your Way’ Global Women’s Conference where a diverse range of global women business leaders will come together to discuss the challenges of a post-pandemic economic climate, prepare for what’s next and support, educate and guide one another to success.

Conference leader and international sought after speaker Bernie explains:

“This is the second of my annual Conferences which was inspired last year by the success of my bestselling Book Your Business Your Way.

Readers resonated with my perspective as a wife and mother from a career in law, divorce, health challenges and loss; to becoming a successful multi-award winning serial entrepreneur, Swansea and West Wales Franchise Owner of Introbiz and CEO & Founder of Bernie Davies Global Ltd.

“However I haven’t done it all alone – I’ve been inspired and encouraged by my fellow female business leaders and regularly put their advice into practice – as well as sharing my own advice with mentorees and network members.

“I felt it would be wonderful for women across the world to come together, celebrate success and inspire each other – and the “Your Way” Global Women’s Conference was born in November 2020.”

“Last year’s lineup boasted an ITV Presenter, an Emmy Ward Winner, The Global Customer Director of The Coca-Cola Company, a Barclays Bank Director, the owner of a part of Amsterdam Harbour, Bestselling Authors and more!

“As the whole world seeks to recover from the impact of the pandemic – and we all have adapted to new, more inclusive ways of working, thanks to technology, the timing of the second event could not be better.”

With an impressive selection of speakers and delegates from across the Globe, this year’s Event kicks off at 9am with a talk by in-demand motivational speaker Bernie, followed by an exciting range of business speakers from across the world, including:

HEADLINE SPEAKER- Alison Edgar MBE, BESTSELLING UK AUTHOR

The best part about the ACN business model is its simplicity – and the potential! Independent Business Owners (IBOs) offer their customers services they are already using and spending money on anyway, such as Mobile, Energy, Broadband, TV and Security.

There is no change in buying habits, Independent Business Owners don’t have to convince customers to purchase services they don’t need or can’t afford. These are services people simply can’t live without.

As an Independent Business Owner (IBO) you receive the complete support of ACN behind you every step of the way, including your very own personalised ACN Online Shop.

Benefit from The Power of Residual Income!

The You Economy is the New Economy

The best part? You can earn a percentage of your customers’ bills month after month, year after year as long as they remain an ACN customer or for the term of their agreement. And every time you acquire a new customer or help an existing customer add a new service, you give yourself a raise. That’s called residual income!

And that’s really just the beginning. When you introduce others to ACN and show them how to get their own customers, you earn residual income from those people’s bills as well. That means for every customer they acquire through their ACN Online Shop, not only does their monthly residual income grow, so does yours.

Whether it starts out as just enough to pay a few bills each month – or over time grows to provide a level of financial security most people only dream about – residual income can and will enhance your life.

Your Ideas. Your Design. Your Life.

Internet. Energy. Wireless. What if we told you these essential services could be a step to building the life you’d love to live?

Start your Business Now
Success Stories

With ACN, you are in business for yourself, but never by yourself!

At ACN, Independent Business Owners have found success offering the people they know more options on the services they already need and use every day. Anyone with the drive and dedication can be successful with ACN, and the first step is deciding to give something new a try.

30 Women-Owned Vegan Businesses in 2021, 2022, 2023, 2024, 2025 and beyond- Top Vegan Businesses – #BizNews

30 WOMEN-OWNED VEGAN BUSINESSES TO SUPPORT TODAY
These badass, sustainably focused, plant-based, innovative companies are changing the world one compassionate product at a time. 

by SARAH MCLAUGHLIN
JULY 1, 2021
115 Shares
It’s time we put our money where our mouths are and support women entrepreneurs and innovators. Female-led companies don’t receive the same consideration as male-led businesses, receiving just 16 percent of business loans, despite employing over 8.4 million workers and generating $264 billion in payroll. These women-owned vegan companies are changing the game with compassionate, eco-friendly, and cruelty-free products, and we couldn’t be more excited to support them along the way. 

@oseamalibu/Instagram

1. OSEA Malibu

Founded by mother Jenefer and run by her oldest daughter Melissa Palmer as CEO, this sustainably focused, non-toxic, glass bottled skincare line utilizes the healing benefits of seaweed to provide natural products for conscious consumers. We’re absolutely obsessed with their gorgeous and calming Venice Beach-based skincare studio for facials and more.

2. Miyoko’s Creamery

From making incredible, award-winning cashew-based cheese wheels; to running a micro-sanctuary; to fighting off legislation trying to prevent her from using the words “butter” and “cheese” on her plant-based products; to traveling the country in a food truck giving out free vegan grilled cheese sandwiches, is there anything this powerhouse can’t do?

All you do is direct people to your personal ACN Online Shop – provided and hosted by ACN – and ACN takes care of the rest.

Why ACN?

We are Opportunity, Success, Integrity, Vision and Ambition

The You Economy is the New Economy

With ACN, you don’t sell trendy widgets or budget-busting services. ACN focuses on essential services that people already use and pay for.

When someone becomes a new customer and pays their bills, you get paid every month, month after month, for as long as they remain on the service – or for the term of their agreement. That’s residual income. Plus, every time you acquire a new customer or help an existing customer add a service, you give yourself a raise.

Some companies spend millions advertising new, enticing products. ACN instead works with people just like you, and the result is more choices for consumers and a remarkable business opportunity for you offering people you already know an alternative on the essential services they are using anyway.

Clubhouse Latest Update News – Changes to Clubhouse Clubs

Clubhouse update release date – Tues, Aug 17

Clubhouse Update News:

Hi all — Happy Tuesday!

Here’s what’s new in this week’s clubhouse update release: ♣️

We’re making some one-time changes to clubs — to simplify how they work and make them easier for you to manage.

We’ve been talking about this for a while at Town Hall and on our blog, so hopefully you know the details, but if not, here is a reminder! We’re simplifying things by eliminating club “Followers,” so there is a single relationship you can have to a club: “Membership.”If you’re the Admin of a club, you can choose to make your membership “Open” (meaning anyone can join as a Member) or “By Approval” (meaning you individually approve all Members).

We’re creating a new role called “Leaders” to help club Admins make their clubs successful. Leaders can start rooms and schedule events that all club members can see, but can’t edit club settings, edit the club name, or add/remove members. Admins can choose which trusted club members to designate as Leaders.When people visit your profile, they’ll see the clubs in which you’re an Admin, Leader, or Member. We’re committed to making this a smooth transition for all of the club Admins out there, so we put together an FAQ to answer your questions and help you get migrated!

🟢 See who’s online — and start a room with them — directly from the Backchannel. Now you can see a green dot when people you’re chatting with are online, and a new button you can tap to start an audio room with them, without leaving your message threads. This feature is available in both 1:1 and group chats.

📥 Archive messages. This has been one of our most requested features ever since we launched the Backchannel. From your inbox, just swipe left on any message to archive it! This works in both your main Chats tabs and your Requests tab. You can access your archived messages anytime by tapping the “…” at the top of the full-screen inbox view

🔔 Fewer, better notifications. We rolled out some improvements that will result in us sending you 18% fewer notifications, without impacting room visits for creators. This mean 44% fewer notifications than a month ago, with more improvements to come. 🙂

That’s all for this week. As always, thank you for being part of Clubhouse! 🙏🏽
