Building a Support Team: Finding Your Community Ramon Ray

4:15 PM 

From Burned Out to Badass Carolyn Herfurth 

We set goals, achieve them and do it again. After awhile, we hit burnout and wonder why it feels like the wheels are falling off! It’s all part of the cycle of reinvention we’ll experience countless times as women business owners. (Get used to it. 😘) So what IS the next evolution in your business model? What’s it look like? How do you make it happen? And how do you move through it without forfeiting the success you worked so hard for? These are some of the questions we’ll explore so that you minimize burnout and stand firmly in your badass energy throughout your many evolutions.  

4:45 PM  

The Role of Mindfulness and Self Care in Business Sarah Vaynerman  

Women are often balancing taking care of their families, friends, business connections and, if there's any time left over, themselves. But in this session we'll talk about how self care and mindfulness are powerful tools to be stronger personally AND professionally.
