My Experience at the “Table of 20” hosted Erica Dias

Hey y’all,

This past weekend I had
the pleasure of being invited to Erica Dias’s event, “Erica’s Table of 20.”  Erica is one the brains behind The B Firm a
public relation firm here in Atlanta and also owner of the vintage fashion
store, Vintage and More. Erica is a California native who moved to Atlanta a
few years ago and started the table of 20 along with her sister Ashley Jernigan
as a platform for women and men to share their stories, motivate and inspire
one another.  These events usually have a
guest speaker, someone prominent in the local community address the group.

I arrived at the event
which took place in the private room at the Café in
Neiman Marcus, Atlanta and was
swiftly hugged by this stunningly beauty with a warm smile. She recognized me
immediately and she led me to my assigned seat. On each table was a swag bag
that included a lot of useful products and information. (We all know how some
swag bags come with “stuff” but not particularly useful. This wasn’t the case
here.

By nature I am more of
an introvert but the group of individuals at this event made it so easy for me
to come out of my comfort zone. The room was filled with intelligent, business
savvy, friendly entrepreneurs and working professionals and I was able to network
with them.

The event started with
a brief introduction by Erica and what the Table of 20 was about. This was the
17th table of 20 event. Everyone introduced themselves and during
the event everyone had the opportunity to talk about what they do and share fun
facts about themselves. What I loved most about this event was the openness of
both the host and the guests. This event definitely attracts the right type of
people.

The speaker was local
news anchor
Sharon Reed who moved to Atlanta about 9 months ago to anchor the
news over at CBS Atlanta. She owned the room not just because she is
intelligent and beautiful but I loved her style of delivery. She shared her
story and answered every question asked and I loved her genuineness. One line
that stood out to me was when she mentioned the difference between a career and
a job. She defined a career as being “an extension of yourself.”  Being fearless, having plans and visions and
having a “go for it attitude” are some of the other nuggets I picked up from our
speaker.

Erica also left me with
some nuggets that I will carry with me. “Faith it, till you make it” was my
favorite of them all and having a vision board. I could continue to list all that I gained from these individuals,
but that would take too long. You need to attend one of her
events to
experience all that it is and more.
