This illuminating one-day conference is created by women, for women in all the glorious platforms of life.  Entrepreneurs, Moms, Retirees, Artists, Professionals, Students, and Educators to name a few. 

In today’s world, it is more important than ever for women to protect our inner light.  We invite you to join us for insightful conversations, tips and techniques for personal and professional success and opportunities to intentionally exhale.

People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the

darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.
