Bold Magazine Presents “The Love Yourself Networking Weekend”

  • New York Marriott Marquis 1535 Broadway New York, Ny 10036 (map)

The winter holiday season has passed and Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. As people, we spend so much time serving others and looking for Mister or Misses Right for cold winter nights; maybe you’ve even taken some time for a spa day. Bold Magazine asks when was the last time you fed your mind? Your soul? Your career?

The “Love Yourself” weekend is about more than feeling good in the present. It’s about knowing what you want MOST and putting it before what you want NOW. You, your career, your growth, your network, and your life!

Love Yourself Weekend is a Plus Positive professional experience located in the amazing Marriott Marquis right in the heart of New York City; Times Square. Joint hem to network, collaborate, and sip on some amazing mimosas.

The audience will be full of amazingly positive “hungry-for-change” plus women. Thisevent, with the exception of the wrap up party on Saturday night is for WOMEN ONLY. Exceptions may be made for men who own legitimate businesses in the plus universe.

Have a clothing line and need models? Meet some! Want to move up the ranks in human resources, education, or WHATEVER you do, find some friends in that space and make time to chat!

During this hour, you’ll be paired with 2 women with similar/complimentary profiles to learn from them and how they’ve grown in the industry. One ‘veteran in the plus universe will be paired with 2 plus universe mentees!

10:00p - 3:00a: Winter Wrap up Party and Club Night, Hosted in the Marriott by Curves, Inc.

They’re all about body positivity. But, sometimes you need to “wrap it up!” Not your body, the winter! Hopefully the groundhog doesn’t see a shadow, that day and they’ll say goodbye to winter weather at the Marriott Marquis with some drinks and dancing! If not, stay warm by moving your feet and hanging with your new plus positive friends.
