I am thrilled to announce that I have the distinct privilege of speaking at Cynthia O’Neill’s Power of the Purse – a one-day women’s conference in St. John, New Brunswick on June 15, 2017, and in Halifax, Nova Scotia on June 20, 2017.
Power of the Purse is a one-day women’s conference that educates and empowers women. At both conferences, I will be joined by a collection of highly successful and accomplished women; our goal is to promote personal and professional development and inspire women to take control of their destiny.
Are You Using Your Power?
As women, we have a great deal of power to exercise but so often we become the impediment that prevents us from moving forward. Frequently, this is due to our lack of self-awareness and not realizing our strengths – or it could be that we don’t want to leave our comfort zone. Whatever the reason is, we often fail to access our power and use it to elevate us to where we want or need to be to comprehend our potential.
My question to you is – are you the obstacle in your way?
When giving presentations or speaking at conferences I have the opportunity to ask the question, “Are You Using Your Power or Are you the Obstacle in Your Way”? This generally stimulates a great deal of thought and discussion among participants.
To be honest with ourselves we really have to dig deep and consider what we really want out of our lives. We have to step back and spend some time being mindful and contemplating the question “How do I get the best out of myself?”
We all have stories to tell about our journeys and crucibles, the things that define us and send us on a certain path. Hopefully, these opportunities reinforce the necessity of living in the moment and carving out the necessary time to create a plan for a life where we can be the very best version of ourselves.
