An Entrepreneur’s Journey
Danielle Beerli, MSW, spoke about her journey creating and running the not-for-profit organization, Empower Her, Inc. on April 22.
Beerli has a determined and motivated mindset, always believing that a girl can accomplish anything. Having turned various childhood adversities into strengths, she decided to pursue a career in social work in order to help others; particularly coming to love the community aspect of social work and service learning.
Danielle decided to pursue her dream of opening a women and girls center. She started Empower Her, Inc. to create local programming for women to be supported in their life paths, as well as to open new doors and opportunities for girls and provide them with foundational prosocial and life skills.
‘Defining You’: Helping professionals define their personal leadership brands, and create career and business opportunities
Kathy McAfee presented on how to strategically position yourself for greater success. Her April 8 talk used three simple and powerful frameworks to help participants feel more motivated and better equipped to articulate who they are and what they do, understand the results they create, identify their signature work and seek more of it, and introduce themselves more clearly and confidently.
The first 75 attendees received a copy of Kathy’s latest book, ”Defining You.“
