I am joining my friend and colleague, Julie Jakopic at a transformative women’s leadership conference,www.DontAwaitCreate.com.  I’ll be speaking about why it’s so important to present a polished professional image, and aligning your inner and outer expression to be the best version of yourself.

This weekend promises to be not only a great way to start 2014 refocused and recharged after the hectic holidays, it also will be a wonderful fun way to learn and share with other women leaders in a creative, nurturing and supportive environment.




I am so excited.  After years of producing conferences and parties with a purpose for clients, I am producing one of my very own.From January 17-19, 2014, I am hosting Don’t Await It, Create It LIVE here in Alexandria, Virginia at the amazing Lorien Hotel and Spa.This event is built around the Don’t Await It, Create It and Planning for Results framework I’ve been teaching for the last several years. Not to toot my own horn, but this work is both practical and purposeful. Results driven and revitalizing. It’s all about getting clear about what you REALLY want and how to get it. (And it works!)

I personally created this event for women leaders who want to shift how they work and play in 2014 to honor both their leadership AND the rest of their lives. Here’s an overview of the event:

Don’t Await It, Create It LIVE invites participants to take OFF the cloak of leadership, put down the baton of needing to have all the answers, and come as the authentic leader you are behind the mask – open, accessible, and ready for support, guidance, ideas, and inspiration.If this speaks to you or someone you know and love, check out the details at http://www.DontAwaitCreate.com and join us.

Feel free to share this with anyone you think will be interested.

I hope have a wonderful holiday season! And I look forward to seeing you in January if not before.

– Julie
