Empower 180 – Empowering Women in Business
One incredible day and night, in September of 2010, I I got a chance to hang out at Empower 180 for the kickoff of their national tour. You can go to www.Empower180.com for more information and to see where they will be next.
What an incredible event that almost no one went to. I am not sure if it was the marketing or if people are just giving up? Actually I visited another event later in the evening at UCLA at Royce Hall and the event was a sell-out so I have to believe it is marketing.
Anyway I really hope they do better going forward as this is an incredible lineup of speakers.
- Les Brown
- Christine Comaford
- Barbara DeAngelis
- Garret Gunderson
- Kevin Harrington
- Chris Howard
- Lynn Rose
- Bill Walsh
and so many more..
These events are so powerful as they help us find out who we are and where we are going and they help us ask the questions of ourselves that we need to ask and many of the speakers motivate us to new highs and many others give us answers to the big questions. Especially now we need to get together with other like minded business people and entrepreneurs, because we cannot expect different results from doing the same thing over and over.
Many of my colleagues give me a hard time for going to these events, but I not only owe my life to my mentors, but owe my growth to allowing myself to be open to being on the learning line of my life.
Take a chance and change your life. Plug in, read, go to webinars and seminars… grab the great info and don’t buy anything if you don’t want to, but do put yourself out.
I was really lucky to find out from my good friend Lisa Schneiderman, that another event was going on at Royce Hall, UCLA campus. After getting the chance to say hello to Les Brown, and Garret Gunderson, I got a chance to meet Kevin Harrington who you may know from Shark Tank. This guy has sold over 4 billion dollars worth of products and discovered Billy Mays. This is a guy I am guessing you would like to get the chance to spend a minute or two with. I got to sit down and watch someone pitch him a product and then got my picture with him. Nice guy.
I took off to Royce Hall, but got there late so I missed Deepak, but did get to see many others speak to conscious Evolution. An incredible program.
A Call to Action: Global Thought Leaders Address Global Concerns
Best-selling authors and Evolutionary luminaries, Deepak Chopra, Jack Canfield, Gregg Braden, Michael Bernard Beckwith, Jean Houston, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Debbie Ford and Bruce Lipton join other world-renowned thought leaders to ignite conscious action for a healthier planet and more peaceful human existence. The gulf oil spill, the economic meltdown, combative political views in our 24/7 world…we’re on a collision course of our own making unless we approach the mounting concerns that we face as a global community.
Siedah Garrett who is famous for writing “Man in the Mirror” and then getting to go on stage and sing it with Michael Jackson stopped by to sing a song she wrote for the event and along with the Agape Church choir. She also sang the most moving version of Man in the Middle. Here it is on YouTube. I only got the end. Awwww
The day was full of passion and great information and the night was filled with hope and the dream of a better world going forward.
Thank you Lisa Schneiderman of Schneiderman PR Firm and also my hang buddy Aggie Kobrin of Off Hollywood Media you both ROCK!
