Top notch, fantastic. I was really dreading this because I dislike CE environments but really enjoyed.

I learned SO much about myself and feel empowered to make real changes in my life.

I felt it was very well organized and I felt taken care of. Julie was an excellent speaker and I enjoyed the content very much.

I couldn’t imagine the program running any smoother.

More dates! More events! Love these and I will be back! THANK YOU!

Excellent conference!!! Much more intimate than the large conferences.

I love that we wrote and expressed rather than just taking in material. This was interactive for real.

It was such a well thought out conference. Well done.
