CHICAGO, December 3, 2019 (Newswire.com) - The International Association of Women (IAW) recognizes Vicki Sowa as a 2019-2020 Influencer. She is acknowledged as a leader in entrepreneurship. The International Association of Women (IAW) is a global in-person and online networking platform with more than 100 local chapters, International Chapters in several cities in China and 1000+ in person and virtual events.
“I’m pleased to welcome Vicki into this exceptional group of professional women,” said IPDN President and IAW Spokesperson Star Jones. “Her knowledge and experience in her industry are valuable assets to her company and community.”
Vicki Sowa began her career as a middle school teacher. Eventually, wanting to have a greater impact on teachers and students across the country, she left teaching to pursue a career in publishing. After nearly two decades in that field, Ms. Sowa made the bold move to entrepreneurship.
“One day while at a Bubbles Fest (a sparkling wine tasting), I posted about it on social media. One thing led to another and in 2016, the Bubbly Side of Life was created!” Ms. Sowa said. “My love for teaching has never dissipated, so I figured out how I could mix my passion for helping and educating others and helping others to live their Bubbly Side of Life.”
Ms. Sowa coaches other entrepreneurs and continues to grow the Bubbly Side of Life community. “Working with clients one-on-one or in workshops, I teach how to brand your business using your #1 asset that no one else could possibly have: YOU,” she said. “Once we identify how you communicate at your very best, we craft a marketing message that is clear and concise.”
Often using the skills she honed as a teacher when working with entrepreneurs, Ms. Sowa also depends upon her natural ability to build and nurture relationships. She loves when clients have their 'a-ha' moments when it comes to their branding, and especially enjoys celebrating their successes.
Today, Ms. Sowa’s main focus is on the evolving brand of Bubbly Side of Life. “Bubbly Side of Life believes there is always a reason to celebrate,” she added. “I had a mentor back in 2008 who convinced me of this and showed me that indeed, we are in control and can live the life of our dreams if we so choose!”
Ms. Sowa’s future goals is to have a Bubbly Side of Life tasting room for clients to gather to celebrate any and every occasion. “We’ll toast to big or small accomplishments with the best sparkling wines around!” she said. “Until then, we have virtual celebrations with the CeleBubbly Box and we are also establishing partnerships with wineries and other brands.”
