I had the privilege of participating in an amazing event last week, the 1st Annual Get Elevated Women's Conference hosted by Felicia Davis and Yetta Young, May 9 - 11th at the Montelucia Resort and Spa. The theme for the event was "Success Redefined: Elevating without Boundaries" and attracted wonderful women from across the country.
There was a VIP event Friday evening, "Fabulous, Fearless & Fired Up" which included a ticket to a play produced and directed by Ms. Young, "Butterfly Confessions".
The vision for the event arose two years ago after the organizers independently experienced life-altering events that them to look at their lives through brand new lenses. It was in the moment of sharing their respective "darknesses" that they came together in support of lifting one another (and subsequently, other women up.
As they continued to share their stories, they realized that women all over were feeling stuck, unsure of how to move forward and were looking for something more.
With those heartfelt conversations in mind, they decided to create an event for women that embraced them in an experience of connection, collaboration and celebration.
Topics of the workshops focused on unlocking financial and wealth wisdom, creating a fulfilling business, redefining life balance, self publishing, influence and dissolving disputes, cashing in on your authentic voice, strengthening the bond of sisterhood and emotional and spiritual health.
