Meet NFBPWC/North Carolina member, Jessica Bryan!


I just released my 35th book on Amazon! Calamity Central can be ordered online at AmazonIt is a humorous look at life's little ups and downs. Those of you who have ever experienced family life, chaos, embarrassing moments, upsets, getting a new puppy, dealing with teenagers, balancing work and play, and dealing with life's dramas (that's pretty much everyone!) will relate to many of the stories I share. Each chapter is a story or stories that will make you smile and nod your head if not laugh out loud.

I am also about to step into the role of President of our local Association of REALTORS for 2021. It is my second time holding that office.

My jewelry is all handmade by me, one bead at a time. I stitch tiny Japanese seed beads, Czech beads and Swarovski crystals into unique, beautiful wearable art. Several pieces are available for purchase.

Contact me for special BPW pricing and more information.

Bead weaving is an ancient technique, used by early humans to decorate objects and clothing. I am proud and happy to be a part of continuing this tradition into the 21st century.

5 percent of profits will go to the NFBPWC/Chatham County scholarship fund.

Meet NFBPWC/Colorado member, Laurie Dameron!


I have been appointed Chair BPW/Colorado Environment and Sustainable Development Committee and I'm much more positive than I used to be. There are SO many "helpers" as Mr. Rogers calls them, out there! I have been working harder than ever and plan to continue to work harder than ever in 2021!

I also haven't given up on being a professional women even though the music business is one of the hardest, if not the hardest, business to have success.

COVID has been really, a blessing in disguise. I lost my day job of 30 years entertaining seniors at "nursing homes." I was spending 80% of my time M-F marketing myself, calling and emailing to set up all of those gigs! Now I am spending time tending to my creative endeavors, writing new songs. I hope to have two new CD's out in the next year to add to my three CD's from the past. 

Q: How can BPW and its members help you on your career path?

You can help by buying my music and streaming just about anywhere there is streaming; Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music. (Musicians earn ~ .004 cents per stream so 100,000 streams might amount to $ we need millions of streams to make any decent money.)

And, recommend my Spaceship Earth: What Can I Do? to schools and nonprofit organizations! It's a 30-60 minute powerful multimedia presentation that engages through the use of art, photography, film and live music. This fun and interactive program offers ways to be better stewards of our beautiful planet Earth and create sustainable and healthy communities.
