IMPACT Magazine held a private dinner to celebrate 10 years in business honoring Women of IMPACT.
IMPACT Magazine 10 Year Anniversary Women Of IMPACT Honorary Dinner Featuring Karen Civil. The star-studded event took place on Sunday, January 15th at Level V in Buckhead Atlanta. IMPACT Magazine’s slogan is “Empower, Encourage, & Educate”. For their 10-year anniversary, IMPACT held a private dinner honoring women in business who are amongst the top in their industry, making waves and aspiring women that follow them. For it’s “Winter 17” issue, media maven Karen Civil graces the cover.
The event began with a red carpet walk through, then interviews in the media suite with a dinner following. I had the pleasure of interviewing a few of the honorees; here are some excerpts:
“It’s all about understanding where you’ve come from and utilizing those skills and lessons to help the next woman.” @thebusinessbabes
“Helping women feel like themselves after having children and helping women feel like themselves as they age”, “I want to help less minority women to die from plastic surgery, minority women are dying and being disfigured more than any other group from plastic surgery and it is my mission to bring awareness and help women learn how to get these things that they want safely and I am not gonna stop until I make sure everybody knows how to be safe.” Ederra Bella-Plastic ederrabella.com
“I love everything that I do, the business I am most passionate about is my direct sales business and the reason why is it creates residual income, you do something one time and you keep getting paid over and over again, there’s nothing more powerful than getting paid residually.”
“I’m excited to release my third project under my publishing company, Toya Wright Publishing, it’s actually a collaboration with my daughter it’s teaching mothers and daughters how to communicate better and build a better relationship, it’s near and dear to my heart and I want to share the things we go through, and how we maintain to keep a better relationship.”
“A women of IMPACT is a woman who has influence and when she is in a room her presences is felt, she does not utilize her power for bad or for evil, but she uses it for good and to uplift everyone and to make the life of everyone better.” pictureperfectpup.com

Deja: What would you say to cultivate a circle of other female bosses?
K.C: “I just love a well-rounded group of individuals, I just have a network of great woman, it’s just about empowering one another so it’s good, we’re all on different levels doing different things, even if we’re in the same lane, we’re in different lanes, so it’s just an incredible feeling, you just always want to have a great network of women around you”.
