Friday, October 31, 2014
GoLocalProv Business Team
Rhode Island's first ever Mind Body Spirit Expo will begin November 29 at the Crowne Plaza in Warwick.
Over 84 exhibitors and businesses of all sizes will be coming to show off their wares, speak with guests about their products, and gain valuable face time with potential clients.
GoLocal spoke with Pat Paolino Cruz, Creator and Producer of the Expo, to talk about how crucial balance is for your success and personal well-being.
"The event focuses on balance, and when I promote local businesses they do better which helps us [Rhode Island] all do better - a rising tide raises all the ships," said Cruz.
As a mother of three herself, Cruz understands the appeal that a holistic approach to life can have for working women, "Women they make up about 84% of buying decisions, and we all need balance. You have got to be healthy and think positively - whether you own a business or not - you need to balance your mind, body, and spirit to be healthy."
With about 17 years of experience running shows like the Mind Body Spirit expo, Cruz is aware of the success exhibitors can expect to see come November.
"The fastest way to gain the trust of a person is to meet with them face-to-face, to network. Then, that interaction turns someone into a potential client. That's why the expo works. That's what its about, and if it wasn’t working we wouldn’t be selling out."
With a focus on balancing business with mental and spiritual well-being, the Mind Body Spirit Expo is a proponent of achieving healthy, happy success in your life.
The expo will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets for the event will be $10 in advance and $15 at the door.
