  • Imagine being at a networking event, and needing to make a first impression--the type impression that will yield a great professional opportunity. It’s at that moment that you realize that you could possibly be just 30 seconds (an elevator pitch) away from a major career or entrepreneurial boost. Are you prepared to concisely and fluidly express your professional goals and the value of what you bring to the table? Beyond a doubt, how you ‘show up, work the room, and follow up’ could impact your ability to advance both professionally and personally. To present the foundational elements of branding through networking designed to yield rewarding personal and professional alliances, we are privileged to have as one of our Day 1 Facilitators, Dr. Wendy Wilson, highly sought for her expertise and training in the areas of professional and leadership development.

  • More recently, the scales are weighing heavily on the side of young girls, who are entering the juvenile justice system at unprecedented rates. Some believe that the increase results from factors including trauma and early age abuse, where our young girls are left to fend for themselves, figure out life on their own, and develop unhealthy self-perceptions and internal pain, all expressed through their life choices. Day 1 Facilitator, Coena Lavette Royal, Youth and Family Specialist, State of Illinois Juvenile Justice System will challenge participants to create programs and/or connect our young girls to programs with Big Sisters, who will encourage, inspire, and nurture our girls to a state of wholeness onto a positive life path. Meet Coena Thursday, May 17 in Cordele as she facilitates the breakout session titled, "Do you see me? The cry of teenage girls to be understood, and the challenge to Big Sisters to positively engage them." www.indigolifewece.com www.indigolifeonline.com/purchase #indigolifewece2018
