Panel 1: Work Your Worth (12:15p EST – 1:20p EST)

Knowing and owning your worth is critical to have a thriving business. Learn how to get paid for the unique value you bring to the table while ensuring that you are doing work that feels valuable to YOU. Know your worth, own your worth, then WORK your worth. Speakers include Micki Price Harvard, Pam Kennedy, and Kelly Wackerman.


Panel 2: Boost Productivity with Badass Boundaries (1:30p EST – 2:35p EST)

  • When you think of productivity, most often you think about checking off endless items on a to-do list. When was the last time you thought about your productivity being related to saying NO and honoring your boundaries? Learn how to positively impact your business/productivity by creating procedures and boundaries that support your work rather than creating extra work.  Streamline your processes, ditch the burnout, and boost your business badassery! Speakers include Stephanie Lyons, and KK Hart Bailey.

Community Breakout

Panel 3: Be U: Hop off the Comparison Train and Carve your own Course (3:00p EST – 4:05p EST)

It’s so easy to spend hours comparing yourself to the next studio or fitness influencer on social media … but that is wasting precious energy that could be used to make your mark, change lives, and be of service … just by being YOU. Learn how to curate your offerings based on your strengths and stay laser focused on what is essential for your business based on your passion and “bigger why”. It’s time to make your business work for you, rather than worrying about “keeping up with the Joneses”. Speakers include Heather McCreight, Lisa Juliet, and Steven Washington.


Panel 4: Creatively Cultivate Your Community (4:15p EST – 5:20p EST)

 In these uncertain, transformative times, we all need authentic, supportive community more than ever. When we are in need of something, we have the power to create it for ourselves and others. Learn how to attract YOUR community by being YOU and honoring/believing in your offerings. You do not need to be a social media expert to create in-person and online community – learn how to get creative in cultivating YOUR community in times of uncertainty and change. Speakers include Alexis Sweeney and Jason Williams.
