Women Of

STRENGTH – BEAUTY – POWER – COURAGE

We ARE put here on earth to live out our GOD given purpose…. Yes if you are like most women you have had some challenges, trials, and tribulations; there have been some things you have gone through that you can’t share or tell anyone.  There have been days that were so dark that you couldn’t see the light from any direction.

Even with all of that WE are courageously powerful and unapologetic about our gifts, talents, and our abilities.  The 2020 HOAW Conference focuses on strengthening you as a woman, business owner, entrepreneur, leader, and manager.

With all the setbacks, we still move forward and we do it graciously.  Thus we are unapologetic about the way we will conduct our businesses, see ourselves, and fulfill our dreams. This years’ conference empowers us to say “the person you used to know,  that shy, unconfident, afraid woman – she doesn’t live here anymore – so don’t look for her those days when you told her she was nothing and was not good enough are gone”… TODAY we are unapologetic about our skin color, the way our hair looks, the manner in which we speak (clear and to the point), today we are unapologetic about our ability to share our story so that it heals, inspires, and encourages others.

Today!!!! We are unapologetic about how we look at ourselves and NO we will not dumb down our abilities so that others can feel Whole, NO we will not become small so that others can become Big, NO we will not say YES to something that deters our view of our future, our view of our self, and our view of what we have BECOME; and NO we will not say YES to something that obstructs our vision, aborts our mission, and does fulfill our purpose so that others can feel COMPLETE  — TODAY we declare that WE ARE UNAPLOGETICALLY – GORGEOUS- COURAGEOUS-POWERFUL-EQUIPPED–STRONG

Join us and hundreds of other women at the 2020 HOAW Conference when we not only declare our place in this WORLD UNAPOLOGETICALLY, but we are being intentional about how you do it!!! For more information go to https://www.wbccthoawconf.com/
