Recently, I had the opportunity to speak at Clemson University for their Annual Women’s Leadership Conference. I was surprised to see attendees ranging in age from late teens to 80 years old! It was wonderful to see the support of approximately 130 undergraduate students, graduate students, alumni, and participants from surrounding colleges and universities.
I want to thank Carrie Tucker and Lauren Kennedy for extending kind “southern hospitality” to this northern native! It was evident that they worked extremely long hours to bring such a thorough and inspiring conference to manifestation and everything flowed with ease. Centered around the theme, Our Authentic Selves: Show Me What You’re Made Of, there were several breakout sessions including topics such as balancing your roles, maintaining a healthy self-identity while in a relationship, authentic reflection, and creative discontent to name a few. I opened the conference with an overview (framing discussion) of how to tap into our authentic selves and then provided the keynote speech over lunch.
I also want to send a special “thank you” to Weslie for being my student assistant while on campus. She was wonderful in helping me with the distribution of my presentation notes, photography, videography, and even transporting me around campus. Also, thank you for the string quartet during lunch – that was the perfect touch! It brought back memories of the time that I played in a chamber string orchestra years ago.
Overall, there were laughs, tears, deep thought and feeling, and lots of reflection throughout the day, which is reflective of women who are being authentic… and also reflective of women who are living a Growth in Motion™ lifestyle!
Growth in Motion™!! = Self Care + Self Empowerment + Self Knowledge + Self Direction
May you continue to gather for many years to come and continue to be “100% Authentic!”
Take Care of Yourself,
“Living a Growth in Motion™ lifestyle!”
