Year of the Women: Your Most Successful Year In Business

Behind one successful woman is a whole tribe of other successful women empowering her, with the knowledge she needs to build her business, introducing her to the right people, investing in her business, because they believe in her expansion, and connecting her to her authentic power and ability to be unstoppable!

 We've designed a panel discussion featuring rock star women willing to engage in an authentic conversation sharing strategies and stories of success, personal to their brands, including LIVE Q&A from the Emery audience.
