What does an “Influencers of Midlife Summit for Women” have to do with Decluttering? Why, everything! I know, this post seems to be a departure from my standard focus of clearing space in your home. But keep in mind my mantra: “Clearing space in your home leads to clearing space in your mind and your heart!” When that transformation happens, you begin to see the fantastic possibilities ahead of you.
On the weekend of January 18th through 20th in a trendy little hotel in Alpharetta, Georgia, the Influencers of Midlife Summit came to life. Fifty plus midlife women gathered to celebrate, support and grow together as influencers but more importantly, to grow as women and friends.
I was pleased to be invited to attend the Influencers of Midlife Summit months ago for an early bird discount, but at the time I didn’t have the funds available. Then, a week before the event, I came across some new information on the event. I suddenly realized I could now afford it but had to pay full price since it was the last minute. I found a great flight package that included The Hotel at Avalon where the conference was being held.
Did you ever attend a meet-up, conference, or blog event that got your juices flowing or gave you added inspiration? The Influencers at Midlife Conference, hosted by Robin Lamonte of Hello I’m 50ish and Nine Bandoni, of Sharing a Journey in Alpharetta, GA this weekend, did just that. The Conference was Friday-Sunday, located at the Hotel at Avalon, a new 1 yr old modern posh hotel not far from Huntersville, where I live.
I want to share with you one of our speakers and brand that participated in the event. Do you ever purchase from a company because of its philanthropic mission to empower women? I met the most amazing women speakers who inspired and empowered us with their journey in life. When I reached out to Athleta, (a brand I wear for exercise) back in September I knew they wanted to be a part of the event but was even more excited when 3 women who are brand ambassadors for Athleta wanted to speak about the Power of She.
I want to introduce to you a wonderful and spiritual woman I had the honor of having as a food and wellness speaker for the Influencers of Midlife Summit who shared her journey into changing her lifestyle and eating habits after living with kidney disease and later being a kidney transplant recipient, please meet my new friend, Lisa Washington.
