I love having conversations with women … inspired, positive women. Nothing gives me more joy than seeing a woman who is fully aware of her power, capabilities and dreams. There is a strong perception that women generally don’t get along and as much as there might be some degree of truth to this, I believe and I have seen women uphold and support each other.I admire a woman who is confident and comfortable with who she and who does not compare herself to the next woman. She is not intimidated by anyone’s success and therefore does not have or feel the need to look down on anyone. She gets along with her counterparts because she is not in competition with them. Instead, she opens herself up to learning from other women.On Sunday the 13th of September I had tea with 20 amazing women at The Tea Mechant Dainfern Square. They are a positive force and we had conversations about careers, success, family, motherhood … the list goes on. I sat with women who love and care about each other, women in general and about being great role models. These are beautiful women who are striving for success, happiness and greatness.Talking to them filled me with hope and inspired me to be the best in each of my roles as a woman. These ladies made me believe that I am capable of being the best mom, sister, friend, daughter and business woman. They are my heroes, women who are always ready to uplift each other.#TeaWithDJZinhle was an amazing success.
