What Will It Take For You To Live the Life You Want? 

It's up to you to choose your life - it might not always feel like it, but you're the only one who can make your choices. We know how tough it can feel - you're confused, unclear about what you want, unsure of how to get it, uncertain about how to even get started.

You're In The Right Place!

This conference is your opportunity to connect with women from all over who are on a similar path but maybe a different place. You'll hear other women's stories, their successes AND failures, learn new tools and options, and come away inspired to create a different approach for yourself. You'll feel nurtured and cared for, seen in a way you might not have been before. We are here to support one another.
