Everyone has a Dream!

The XtraOrdinary Women 'Everyone has a Dream' Cocktail Evening at The Cape Royale Hotel & Spa was held on the 28th February on the Villa Deck on the 9th Floor of this beautiful hotel.

We're welcomed with cocktails around the pool deck and savoured the view of Cape Town. Prizes were drawn from lucky numbers that included spa treatments, personal development training and many more. Afterwards we listened to speeches from successful women that were both inspirational and heart felt. It was a privilege to hear about their private lives to help other entrepreneurs achieve their goals. Personally as a business owner, these are the lessons what I have taken to implement into my own life.

Entrepreneurs have the passion to move people forward. In recent years the commercial world in many respects has lost its lustre. Nevertheless, everyone still wants success. With successes come failures and it is how you get up from the failures that counts. If your spirit is also big and you want to be your own boss and ultimately gain money, position and power then being an entrepreneur is your ticket to freedom. Do everything from the ground up. Go to people and sell your company. Everything must come from inside as you you have the power to follow your dream and live your dream.

Carry out your passions as these cannot lie dormant. Feel the beauty, rhythm and learn to love oneself. Be proud and not modest that you are the CEO - whether it is the Cleaning Executive Officer or the Chief Executive Officer. Know how to get one's hands dirty. Be able to accomplish anything you are able to dream of. Believe in yourself. Enjoy the journey. Invest time in it even if you start small but just try it. And lastly show gratuity which is very important in gaining success.

"Never sacrifice yourself for someone that has a problem with it" Melissa Podesta

Following the speeches, Le Moulin Rouge did two teaser performances of their up and coming show to be held at Artscape on the 14 - 17 March and Spier on the 22 - 24 March. All the performers are volunteers to bring this magical show together. These artists and performers are extremely talented so let's give them our support and have a wonderful night out. Bring on the fun!

The goodie bag was filled with Wild Olive Olive Oil Soap and Lavender drops; Jeannies Almond Cranberry Biscotti's and Decadent Choc Brownies; Cherubs Eco friendly Cotton Buds; Lindt Chocolate; Desert Voucher at Bread Cafe-Boulangerie-Deli; Destiny and Cosmopolitan Magazines.
