Today I asked my mom to add something to my Christmas list. I asked her to buy me a ticket to the “Own Your Life” conference in January. It’s a conference for women (stay-at-home moms, working moms, everyone). I think it looks awesome. It is sponsored by Mom Corps, the job resource for the many super-smart moms who have chosen to stay at home for a few years… and for moms who want to stay in the workforce but need something a little more flexible to have the balance they want (and everything in between).
Mom Corps has been in Charlotte for about 2 years now. You have probably seen the founder on the Today Show and other media.
So they are putting on this great conference that I think sounds great. I know that the concept of work/life balance is central to Mom Corps mission and it’s something I struggle with every day (I am sure we all do!) Plus I love the idea of all these moms in one room, sort of rooting for each other.
The event is Wednesday, January 23rd from 7:30am-1pm at The Marriott Downtown. There will be networking, an expo, raffles, book signings and I hear they will have gift bags. It is $50 if you sign up by Dec 15th. Not sure of the price after that.
The speakers/segments include:
“Own Your Happiness”
Ann Crittenden: Author of “If You’ve Raised Kids, You Can Manage Anything”
“Own Your Success”
Dr Kathleen Hall: Work/life balance expert, author of “A Life In Balance”
“Own Your Career”
Panel discussion with moms in different cycles of their careers
