What a whirlwind day of being amongst so many female entrepreneurs!

  • I was honored to be a Speaker!

  • I was interviewed by Brandstar Media!

  • I had a giant and gorgeous booth!

What an amazing experience!

The 2018 Women’s Empower Expo was better than ever this past year and I was so excited to be a part of it!

First and foremost, hats off to the multi-talented, Alexa Carlin! She’s leading the way for female entrepreneurs everywhere. Alexa created this conference/expo from the ground up and this is her baby. She’s a powerhouse and her energy is contagious. One of my favorite things about Alexa is her indefatigable dedication to moving other women forward. She is a social media maven, with continuously amazing content and professional speaker. I took her How to Be a Public Speaker online course and it was a great foundation for creating the life you want as a speaker.

This is what happens when you don’t have the right lighting - your eyes look like black holes!

I was on a great panel discussion called Creating A Killer Brand and my contemporaries were beyond compare:

  • Dr. Austin, a/k/a The Queen of Smiles and Cardi B’s Dentist!

  • Amanda Perna, local designer who was featured on Project Runway

  • Enid Nolasco, branding expert and Founder at Witchcraft Branding, Founder of RAW Storytelling

  • moderated by LaVonnndra Johnson, Elle Johnson Co. - brand strategist whose concepts have been show on VH1 and Bravo TV

I was also interviewed by Brandstar Media, who is responsible for bringing programming such as The Balancing Act, Designing Spaces and Military Makeover to major cable networks. It was a fun, exciting and unexpected surprise! Thank you to Alexa for recommending me!

Finally, my incredible double-sized booth! OMG. Huuuuuuge thanks to La Vie En Blanc in Fort Lauderdale for providing the furniture to create the living room feel I wanted for my booth. This boutique design house is a jewel in Fort Lauderdale and I am proud to have them as friends.

I have to say, the BEST part about WEX was the AMAZING SUPPORT I received from my friends! These ladies right here made all this possible and I simply don’t know what I would do without them! Love you, ladies!
