Grow yourself. Grow your business.

Becoming a Fearless Storyteller

Carrie Grace McQuaid

Have you ever felt the urge to chase after a big dream or share your story with more people? Perhaps you get really excited and then fear starts to creep in. You begin to question your worth, your value, or ask yourself “does my story even matter?”. Carrie Grace is going to help us break through the fear barriers and teach everyone how to push onward. Stories have the power to impact others’ lives in profound ways, so this talk will be a permission slip to live more bravely, authentically, and fully you. You will walk away fully knowing the power of your own story and how to share it more boldly with your audiences and those you encounter.

Lead Like A Girl and Watch Them Follow

Amanda Lamb

Ever feel like you have something to say and no one seems to be listening? Unfortunately, even in 2018, women’s voices are still not getting the attention and respect they deserve. I will share my story with you and turn the mirror around to show you how much your voice really matters. I can’t wait to share my passion for positive communication and good storytelling with you. We all have an important story to tell. What is yours?

Cultivating A Story of Influence

Holly Barton + Amanda Cox

Come hear how two sisters overcame the hardest season in their lives by getting lost in a business they now call Greenhouse Picker Sisters. They will share with you their journey, helpful tips on being women business owners, and how to keep going when you want to quit. They are loud and open books so you are also guaranteed a good laugh. You don’t want to miss out on all the fun, reserve you ticket today!

 

Once Upon A Time

Noa Ronen

“Once upon a time,” what a great way to start a fairy tale. We all know that once upon a time is soon to be announced with.: “and they lived happily ever after.” Just like how it goes in our daily life….right?

In this closing session, Noa will take us on
a magical and realistic ride.

You will leave this talk breaking through the barriers of your internal stories and create your ‘FAIRealitY Tell’.  
You will also experience how your story impacts others and how you can shift your own story to the story of us.

You don’t want to miss this session, this is you opportunity to work on everything you learned today while being inspired by Noa’s stories sprinkled with her approach to tell it as it is.

Defining Your Story 

Stephanie Llorente

We all have a story to tell – especially where our businesses are involved. But, sometimes it can feel like that story is insignificant, “less than,” or not well defined. Let’s address that! In this session, we’ll look at real life examples that showcase how differentiation can enhance a brand, entice consumers and grow businesses. This session will help business owners understand the benefits of creative differentiation, confidently define their brand position, and establish actionable steps in sharing that brand position with audiences that matter.

Growing Your Story

Jackie Craig

“Having some midweek inspiration was amazing for me. I think I’m still so taken back at the amount of support there is through all these women. Cary you personally have such a warm loving personality that immediately made a girl who was so far out of her comfort zone feel at home the moment I stepped in. My only regret was not being able to attend all 6 classes and talk to more people! 45 minutes seemed to really fly by in the blink of a eye but everything was more than I imagined it would be. Thank you for the opportunity and I will definitely be back next year!”
