** ABOUT the ON PURPOSE WOMAN COMMUNITY **

The On Purpose Woman Community was founded in March 2000. There are 10 monthly meetings around Maryland and one in Virginia, with other in-state and out-of-state locations planned.

If you have not visited us, come on out and see why women love this community. And if you have visited with us before, I hope you'll come and see us again!

Women tell me that they are drawn to the heart-centered way we approach our businesses and each other. They love the ease of connecting with new women and reconnecting with those they have met before and the support they receive from one another.

While many of the women who attend are entrepreneurs, our meetings are open to all women. Are you retired or have you lost your job and looking for what your "next thing" may be? Let us help make this time of transition easier and more fun! Maybe you're a stay-at-home mom looking for some adult connections and a little down time. Come and hang out with us! Students, corporate/government employees, non-profit heads...there is a place at our table for all of you! Thinking of starting a business? Then you definitely want to make these connections.

And...invite your women friends to come with you!

DISCUSSION TOPIC: "IT'S NOT TOO LATE!"

The day we gather in Annapolis, it will be 51 days before the end of the year. How are you doing with the goals and dreams you have for this year? On track? Sort of on track? Not on track at all?

There is good news! It's not too late, if you take action now, to make some of those things happen by year's end.

Ginny Robertson will lead a discussion on some things that get in our way of going after what we say we want, as well as some ideas to help us "do it anyway." Everyone there can ask questions and share their ideas.

"LOVING & LEVERAGING LINKEDIN" With NATALIE GALLAGHER

Learn to leverage and love the often neglected social media platform, LinkedIn. Understand why you need to, not only as an individual, but also as a business and find out insider tips on how to efficiently work the platform and build explosive networks.

I'm Natalie of Virtually Nat and I am a web designer/developer, social media manager/strategist, and email marketer.

I have 20 years of diverse IT experience spanning 3 continents and multiple industries, working for corporations, agencies, universities, non-profits, small businesses, and entrepreneurs. 10 of those years have been focused exclusively on web, social media and digital marketing. A year or so ago, I started my own one-woman digital agency, giving me the flexibility to do what I love (helping businesses get online the right way and using content marketing to drive results), when I want (2 am, anyone?) and still raise my two small children.

I build your online footprint so that you can focus on building your business...skyrocketing your business to the next level.

FEATURED SPEAKER:

LET'S TALK ABOUT MONEY with SANDY MCDOUGALL

Why – when money touches everything in our lives - don’t we talk about money? For generations, women have lived with such a potent taboo around this subject that most of us fail to look closely at the effect it has on our lives. Well, it’s time! It’s time we break the old taboos and actively seek to understand how the stories and beliefs we carry about money shape (and mostly limit) our lives and our dreams. The first step to financial empowerment is to begin to talk and share more openly about the role of money in our lives. The second step is to understand how powerfully our relationship with money shapes our money lives. Isn't it time to learn how to recognize and heal your “money issues” and to restore a positive and powerful relationship with money.


Sandy McDougall helps women understand and restore their relationship with money so that they can provide well for themselves, their families, their businesses, and their dreams for their future. As a Wholistic Women’s Life Coach and Money Mentor, Sandy believes that as we build new awareness and create new habits around our relationship with money, we uplift and empower the way we live in every other dimension of our lives as well.
