Reinventing Wine Wednesday

Reinventing Wine Wednesday

About six years ago in 2014, I got a phone call from my friend, Lisa, asking if I had a bottle of wine so she could come over for a glass.  Of course, I had wine, but it was 11:00 am on Wednesday, and we both had jobs – she worked at an office, and I worked from home.  When I reminded her of this, she replied, “Yes, I know.  What do you want for lunch?  I’ll be there in thirty minutes.”


Two hours and one bottle of wine later, Lisa and I confidently decided we could solve all the world’s problems every Wednesday – as long as we had wine.  So, we invited Sheryl to join us for the following Wednesday, and Wine Wednesday was born!  For the next two years, our elite Wine Wednesday club met in the middle of the week, every week, to discuss jobs, family and solve world problems.

Fast forward to May 2020.  I now live in South Florida, but Lisa and Sheryl are still in Alabama, which makes meeting for Wine Wednesday moot.  Until COVID19.  One day in March, Lisa and I got a text from Sheryl, “Meet me in Houseparty. My middle schooler told me about it.”  And the three-year Wine Wednesday sabbatical was over!  Just like that, we were together again, solving world problems, one glass at a time.


It didn’t take long before Lisa, Sage of Wine Wednesday Wisdom, suggested we use Zoom and open up this elite problem-solving club to virtual masses.  With so many people adjusting to the work-from-home edict, the sudden instability of employment and emotional upheaval, we knew a captivated audience awaited.  Based on past experience with ESIRT, the former Wine Wednesday meetings and current virtual networking events, we decided that we could guide an audience with topics that needed solutions and provide, through discussion, actionable items that attendees can implement immediately to move forward in business within our new environment.


Who knew Wine Wednesday could go global?  Register at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81595997166 and join us every Wednesday at 6:00 pm EST!  Together, we’ll find solutions, one glass at a time!
