Purpose, Passion, Action in Raleigh, NC

PPAEVENT.jpg

I have two major goals for my personal brand. One of those being able to travel and speak to other women about pushing past their fears and building a business. The second goal is to get over my fear of public speaking so that the first goal can actually happen. I know for a fact that if you want to overcome any irrational fear, then it's important for you to put yourself in situations that will force you to face your fear head on. So when Siobhan of BeFreeProject.com reached out to me to host an in-person event with her here in Raleigh, NC, I jumped at the opportunity to collaborate. Not only to help me to push past my fears but because I also knew that we are both extremely passionate about helping women dig into her purpose.

After a few months of preparation, over 20 women headed here to Raleigh, NC for the 4-hour Purpose, Passion, Action workshop at the beautiful, Pinterest worthy HQ Capital Club.

OUR PURPOSE FOR THE EVENT

We wanted to create an event that helped women to uncover their purpose and passions. The idea for the event came up because we realized that with both of our audience's, a common issue was that they either feel like they didn't have a bigger purpose or they were simply unsure of what their purpose could be. With our expertise we wanted to created an event where women could come together, start conversations about what they love, network and hopefully leave with some clarity in what they are being called to do. One of our main goals was to also make sure that the attendees left with a plan. While sharing our stories and talking about purpose can make you feel inspired, we wanted to stress the importance of taking action. We not only touched on why it is important to figure out your passions and purpose but we also gave attendees actionable steps on what to do next. From setting S.M.A.R.T goals to creating their vision statement to a list of ideas that will help them to implement everything they learned during the workshop.

The workshop was absolutely incredible and Siobhan and I played off of eachothers stories and tips so well that you wouldn't believe that it was only our 2nd time meeting each other in person!

THE VENUE

HQ Capital Club graciously allowed us to use their event/co-working space located in downtown Raleigh. When I first toured the venue it immediately reminded me of one of those picture perfect spaces you find on Pinterest with modern furniture and large windows that provided tons of natural light. i even mentioned several times how I wish I could have hosted my wedding reception there it was so gorgeous!
