Here’s a preview of what Marie will be personally teaching you:
- The exact formula for marketing high priced products & services – even if you’re just starting out.
- How to turn your expertise into high value content…and leverage it for maximum impact.
- The paradox of highly successful women: How to be driven without driving men away. This is a hot topic we’ll be exploring throughout the weekend.
- The 2 deadly positioning mistakes most women make that drive an otherwise profitable business into the ground.
- The dangerous pricing “mindset” traps that always lead to failure (and sometimes bankruptcy) that MOST women have hardwired in. (I had a hard time with this…and I’ve never talked about this before!)
- How to eliminate the “implementation block” so you stop spinning your wheels and start creating results.
- How chaos gets started in your mind and emotional body and what to do about it.
- Two major “psychological triggers” your prospects have been subconsciously conditioned to respond to… and how you can use them NOW.
- If you worry about stuff that’s BEYOND your control to the point where you’re anxious and can’t get ANYTHING done…here’s how to permanently overcome it.
- How to manage your time, energy and passions daily to get the RIGHT things done without sacrificing your well-being, happiness or relationships.
- The secrets of authentic and highly persuasive marketing that will help you make more money and make more of a difference then you could ever imagine. (NOTE: I will be taking you through a super secret, uber powerful process that will leave you speechless and your market thinking you’re a mind-reader.)
- How to write copy that’s so damn irresistible you’ll barely keep from buying your own sh*t!
- What “filter” you must use to write your marketing messages to guarantee you don’t come across slimy or sales-y.
- Ever worry that you mistake FEAR for INTUITION? Here’s the science behind it all and how to know whether or not you’re getting an intuitive “hit” or wisely detecting fear.
- A proprietary process that instantly dissolves fear, builds unshakable confidence and removes blocks so you stay on track and create results. (This physical training experience is so far beyond anything else when it comes to living in the present moment and having the courage to BE you, it’s mind-blowing!)

Latham & Tia explore 3 product lines that help combat stretch marks. Whether you are a mother-to-be or someone who is concerned with the quality and elasticity of your skin, this is a must see. Stretch marks can be prevented through self care- eating a well balanced diet including healthy fats (olive oil, avocado, almonds, flaxseeds etc.) exfoliating regularly to get rid of the old layers of damaged skin and bringing new skin to the surface, and maximizing moisture.

How to do it: Bring your hips flush with the wall, lie on your left side, send your right leg up the wall and rolling onto your back, slide the left leg up to meet the right. Your hips can be flush with the wall at 90 degrees or slightly away creating a 45 degree angle with the legs. Close your eyes and relax your shoulders, and breathe deeply.

Below is a personal statement from Christy Turlington about her must-see documentary.
"Like many women, I was excited to become a mother and enjoyed being pregnant. But just after delivering my first child, I suffered a serious complication. While I had a birth team that worked quickly to manage the situation, I was shocked to learn that more than 500,000 women die each year during childbirth—and that 90 percent of these deaths are preventable. This left me needing to learn more about maternal health.
I have since become the Maternal Health Advocate for the Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere (CARE) and enrolled in the Masters of Public Health program at Columbia University's Mailman School. But I still felt helpless, frustrated by the reports that maternal mortality numbers were not dropping. I was inspired to make a documentary film that would share the stories of women at risk of becoming a mortality statistic. I hope that by bringing people together through the universal experience of birth, we can help create a mainstream maternal health movement that ensures the lives and well-being of mothers worldwide, for generations to come."
And now, the trailer for No Woman, No Cry.
The evening’s events include a presentation from HealthCorps, words of wisdom from Victoria Moran(Living a Charmed Life), tender words from Latham Thomas(Tender Shoots Wellness), food demonstrations and an exciting raffle for some amazing prizes.
