Starting this week, we are introducing another new segment on our blog, Women Owned Wednesday, honoring the “WOW” women we know! We know so many amazing women who are killing it out there in different ways. Both Charu and I strongly believe in empowering and being cheerleaders for other women and I feel fortunate that we can do this in our own small way by giving a shout out to the fabulous women we know! If you are a woman owned business or are contributing in your own way to help others, send us a message and we would love to feature you!
We are so happy to be initiating our first Women Owned Wednesday with the very fabulous Christie Pileggi Neeld! I owe my meeting her to my four-year-old and I am so happy that I have had the good fortune to get to know her over time. She is one of the most positive people I have met and her positivity truly rubs off on everyone she comes in contact with! I am sure that anyone who knows her will agree with me! At the time that I was introduced to her, she owned a Gymboree Play and Music franchise. In 2016, Christie and her husband sold the business so she could to focus on raising her two girls. Christie specializes in parenting with abundance and finding joy even on the darkest days. Since then, she has moved on to other ventures and is currently, a board member and workshop leader at a non profit in Collegeville, PA called Pillars of Light and Love. They offer stress and life management for all ages and Christie teaches several workshops which are great for parents and kids alike! I have personally attended her workshop on “Teaching Your Children How to Create an Abundant Life.” To say that it was one of the most positive hour of my life would be an understatement. She is just so real, relatable and the takeaways from the session were absolutely executable! If you are local to Philly, I would highly recommend you look up their schedule and sign up for one of her workshops! Here is a link to her page where she shares some wonderful messages and activities. You can follow her page for some awesome takeaways which you can practice in your own home with your family regardless of where you are located! Christie is truly a “WOW” woman and we are honored to be able to feature her in our very first Women Owned Wednesday post!
