Be a part of conversations from local inspiring women, who have gone and continue to go from “Someday to Day One.”
We have all read the books. We post the motivational quotes. How do we put them into action?
Sometimes we need to hear those personal stories to remind ourselves that we are not alone. That we as women have taken on many roles and responsibilities. We are wives, we are mothers, we are aunts, we are grandmothers. We are students, we are entrepreneurs, and we are business owners. We are first generation US Citizens, we are domestic abuse survivors, we are women who are battling depression.
We are women who must have self compassion and self love for ourselves.
We ask ourselves – “How do we get there?”
And we have this… idea. This yearning. A desire. WE have a choice to either listen to that desire. When we listen to this desire, we learn, we grow, we engage with others. We all hear that we must eat right, raise our heart rate, and maintain healthy habits. How do we grow into that person we know we can be? How do we get out of our own way? How do we stop self-defeating behavior? How can we make permanent change?
We must learn to create a healthy mind with healthy thoughts!
The vision of this event is to educate, inspire and motivate women by giving you tools and action steps to create a healthy mind and healthy habits!
We want you there to join in on the conversation.
