Info Session: Dare to Detour - A Transformative 4-Day Women’s Retreat in Southwest Montana

Find yourself off the beaten path.

Join Dare to Detour founder and host, Sheryl Ott, and come learn more about how you can actively reset, recharge and reconnect off the beaten path!  Dare to Detour is a women’s wilderness retreat daring you to take a detour from the endless cycle of the everyday to discover something new and reacquaint yourself with a part of you that you may have set aside.  It’s happening again this year at the Nine Quarter Circle Ranch in Southwest Montana, September 13 - 16, 2018. Both men and women are welcome to come learn about the revolutionary way of resetting! And why not? THE FIRST DRINK IS ON US!

Even better - the expired early bird rate for the retreat will be offered to all who attend the info session - a 16% savings! Fingers crossed you give yourself (or a woman you love) permission to pause and detour to Montana this fall!

"There is one thing all detours have in common: they are disruptive.  This is the beauty of detours. Beauty, you ask?  Yes!  By forcing you to step off your daily path, slow down, pause, consider, reframe and redirect, detours demand that you open yourself to possibility and to trust in a new direction, often revealing new and beautiful scenery along the way.  I believe that  the real beauty lies within as you accept the new path you find yourself on, perhaps shifting your perspective."

Co-creation: An Emerging Pradigm

Co-creation: An Emerging Pradigm

A conversation and activation with Jessica Kung Dreyfus
6-7pm Conversation
7-8pm Activation: Co-creating a space together

A new way of being is evolving, and while it is not mainstream yet, it will soon push out our current way of doing things and become the dominant set of practices. This emerging paradigm is a transformation of the existing story about creative processes. This new way of being - co-creation, co-working, and collaboration - is actively disrupting multiple creative industries; the ways in which things are designed, produced, and even the process of developing new ideas. The old image of the solitary genius with a light bulb over their head is becoming a thing of the past, and the processes of co-creation are forcing a shift in our contemporary culture. It is changing how art is being made, how companies are being structured, and how spaces are being built. 

You are invited to join a curated conversation and activation. In the activation we are going to tap into the pulse of co-creation and generate the foundational geometry that embodies the spirit of our contemporary landscape.

Limited to 20 spaces, please RSVP by FB messaging Jessica!

This is an interactive and in-depth approach to bringing a new level of awareness to the patterns that are creating stress in our life and business.

Let's upgrade our minds and give it a little remodel. If you've been using the same strategies and they continue to create more feelings of stress and overwhelm then its time for a bit of a remodel. I believe we have all the resources we need within us to create a massive impact with less stress and more ease.

What you will LEARN & RECIEVE:

Survivor's Stories of Triumph

Willpowered Woman is a 501c3 nonprofit that focuses on empowering underserved and underprivileged women. All money made through our events and classes go directly to the cause.

We are excited to invite you to our upcoming event “Survivor’s Stories of Triumph” happening on Tuesday May 29, 2018 at the amazing women-owned co-working space Covo.

Panelists include Carolyn Arnold, a trained co-counsellor, singer/song writer and music teacher in Berkeley and Willpowered Woman CEO & Founder, Caitlin D’Aprano. They will share their stories of overcoming intimate partner abuse, the ups, the downs and how they rose above and beyond their situation to lead a new life they love and have full control over.

The floor will be opened for a Q&A where you can ask any questions you would like! We want you to leave with a better understanding of how intimate partner abuse can happen to anyone and the ways you can stay self-empowered in your life whether you’re in a romantic relationship or not. There is life after abuse, whether you’re a survivor, are currently experiencing abuse or want to come and listen to some amazing stories, this event is for you!

6:30pm - 8:30pm

  • 6:30pm: Doors open — time to mingle with fellow guests and members of Willpowered Woman

  • 6:45pm sharp: Find a seat: panel starts

  • 7:30pm: Q&A

  • 8pm: Meet and chat with the panelists.

  • 8:30pm: Wrap up

Quick facts on intimate partner abuse:

  • Intimate partner abuse affects 12 million people each year in the US alone: learn the signs and ways to get self-empowered in your life through Willpowered Woman!

  • Women aged 18 to 34 experience the highest rates of intimate partner abuse, yet they are the most underserved demographic.

  • In 98% of intimate partner abuse cases, the partner controls finances so a woman is trapped in the relationship. Prevent financial abuse by always having an emergency stash of money, keeping bank accounts separate and having each partner take care of their own financial needs.

  • Abuse can come in many forms and is not only physical, it can be emotional and spiritual and the long-term effects of these are just as detrimental.

  • Forced pregnancy happens to 1 in 4 women in abusive relationships. Signs of forced pregnancy can be anything from rape to sabotaging birth control to your partner telling you that you don’t love them if you don’t want to have a baby with them.

Sex, Drugs, Success - An Evening W/ Female CEOs of Sin Businesses


Sin Pays: Self-Funded Women-Owned Business Successes

Why They Did It. How They Did It. What They Learned.

Girl Groove presents inspiring female founders and risk-takers who will share their uncensored stories of the risks, rewards, and challenges of starting and running a business outside the usual boundaries of propriety, namely cannabis and sex.

 

Ever since the Garden of Eden, women have been associated with sin. But, many have learned how to turn a profit on it - from Miss Kitty who owned the saloon in Gunsmoke, the early 60’s TV Western to Maggie Gyllenhaal in “The Deuce” and even Melanie Griffith in “Working Girl” who famously said, “I’ve got a brain for business and a bod for sin.”

This is a night of badass successful women who’ve drawn their own blueprints for success with a lot of inspiration and perspiration.…in sin businesses. They will be sharing their stories of success, the lessons they’ve learned, and how you might do the same.

This is NOT restricted to women! MEN ARE MOST WELCOME!

Benefits of attending Sex, Drugs, Success-An Evening W/ Women CEOs of Sin Businesses

  • Meet senior executives, business leaders, experts, influencers face-to-face

  • Find mentors, investors, co-founders, employees, new clients through networking opportunities

  • Connect with like-minded peers from across a range of professions and build your network

  • Gain a deeper understanding of the skills, qualities and attributes needed to be a successful leader

  • Examine the barriers currently facing female leaders (and future leaders) in the workplace and hear how to overcome them

  • Catapult your personal and professional success and develop your leadership skills

  • Encounter brands and services targeting professional women

  • Have fun, while gaining valuable insights, new friends and contacts

 

Who Should Attend?

This event is designed to bring together women and allies interested in leadership skills, empowering women, professional and personal development, and networking to encourage discussion and learning in the areas of career evolution, networking, entrepreneurship,, women's empowerment, and ending the gender gap in the workplace .

Join us for an inspiring, empowering, and unforgettable evening!

Celebrate with drinks, music, goodie bags. A great way to launch your weekend!
