The Keynote Speaker will be Regina Calcaterra, Author of the #1 International Bestseller: Etched in Sand: A True Story of Five Siblings Who Survived an Unspeakable Childhood on Long Island and co-author of Girl Unbroken: A Sister’s Harrowing Journey from the Streets of Long Island to the Farms of Idaho.

The workshops include are:
Wealthy Woman Within: Katherine Dean, CFP and Founder of Living your Worth, Inc.
We as women still earn between $500,000-$850,000 less than men over our lifetimes. The pay gap is real. What is even more real is that we let self-doubt interfere with earning the income we deserve and rarely negotiate for our success. In this powerful workshop, you will learn to take charge of money in all areas of your life. You will get the tips and tools to negotiate for success, get your money working for you, debt busting tips, boosting your bank account, and plug the leaks in your finances to be the Wealthy Woman we all have been dreaming about and deserve.
You Are What You Wear: Presented by Melanie Lippman, Style Consultant
First impressions are based 7% on what we say, 38% on how we sound, and 55% on how we look. This workshop will teach you what to wear, how to wear it, where to find it and when to save and when to splurge. By editing your wardrobe and identifying the pieces that make the most impact on your look, you will have less clutter, more styled options and no frustration. This fun and interactive workshop will leave you excited about getting dressed every morning.

Registration deadline is October 10.
