It’s that time of the
month year again..
8th March. International Women’s Day.
Instead of the usual brunch, sales and the #pinkghetto popular media tries to shove down our throat in the name of Women’s Day
Do you want something more? Something more meaningful?
How about this time around, we do things a bit different?
How about a bunch of conversations with a group of the most funny, quirky, sassy and empowering women ?
Over the last few years, I’ve had the privilege and honor to meet an incredible group of women. Sassy, Smart, Strong women. Women, who don’t fit the mold. Who have strong opinions and don’t shy away from expressing them. Women, who just like me, are working towards empowering other women.
This women’s day we’d like you to join us for some interesting – and possibly life changing – conversations.
We talk about things that aren’t mainstream, things that mainstream media considers taboo, or just avoids because it’s “sensitive”.
We talk about things that matter to women – or should.
We talk about finding our voices, and reclaiming our lives.
We talk about discovering the Goddess within – and
We talk about 180 degree career changes.
We talk about doing the things everyone told us not to do.
We talk about the things that are considered taboo.
We talk about bringing together the contradictory parts of ourselves that seem so (Reiki Master who’s also Karate Black Belt – that’s Jennifer; Chief Financial Officer turned ‘Energy Healer’ – that’s Saule and Chartered Accountant turned Money Mentor, who’s also an avid biker…yes, we’re a motley bunch)
But most of all, we share our live’s stories, bits of ourselves. In all our quirky, fun, sassiness.
Because that’s how we learn, and grow, and heal as women – by sharing, by supporting.
I’m lucky to have these wonderful women in my life.
And I’m proud to be able to share some of their magic with you.
From 8th March onward we’ll release one conversation each day. Real women. Real conversations. A slice of Real life.
If you’d like to join us, pop in your email below so we can send the videos across to you each day:
