Women Investing in Wellness Companies

Mental Health for Entrepreneurs: Shine Bright Without Burning Out

In this session designed specifically for entrepreneurs, psychotherapist Jenny C. Brice will teach you how to identify, prevent and heal from the dreaded burnout. You’ll learn how to perform a life satisfaction assessment, practice utilizing the FOCUSING method to cultivate internal awareness and create a personal self-care management and emergency plan for when burnout is approaching. Mental health is key to the success of you and you are the key to the success of your business—let Jenny help you thrive!

Why Branding Yourself is the Only Way to Stand out in the Wellness Industry

When you step into entrepreneurship, it's easy to get caught in the comparison trap, believing that in order to be successful you have to follow in someone else's footsteps. The truth is, your success and impact ultimately comes down to being a trailblazer—more specifically, being the REAL YOU. It's in leading with unbridled authenticity that you become magnetic and gain the power to stand out from the crowd. The first step? Leveraging who you are to create a distinct personal brand. In this talk, Blair Badenhop teaches you three essential principles of branding: how to connect with your intuitive business vision, how to weave your story, style, and voice into your online presence, and how to cultivate what she calls “client woo-power.” If you’re the face of your brand, this session is for you.

Keynote Conversation with Nastia Liukin and Nicolle Mackinnon

A conversation about second chapters, pushing boundaries, and finding meaning. This keynote will not only explore Nastia's success as an Olympic champion and entrepreneur, but also the years in between where she was faced with adversity, the unknown, and defeat.
