5 Keys to Success


Why make business so complicated? It's easier than you think! Discover why so many business owners never make, or get stuck at 6-figures; and how you can not only reach and maintain 6-figures, but exceed 6, and 7-figures in your business. Even if you’re running a 7-figure business, join us to learn how to get to 8-figures and beyond. Whether launching, growing, or scaling your business, you will learn how to live, live Above and Beyond your business, rather than working IN and ON their business, to gain the freedom you dreamed of when you became an entrepreneur. You will leave with one action component and two mindset shifts you can implement immediately to change your results.

Luncheon Keynote Speaker

Julie Holmes

Virginia Tire & Auto

If You Want Change, You Have To Be the Change…


After more than seven years in a successful law career, Julie Holmes left it all behind to take over and grow one of the region’s largest auto care companies. Daunted by the lack of women in the automotive industry, she has made it her goal to actively recruit more women. While growing Virginia Tire & Auto and raising five children (four girls,) she also continues to focus on the importance of making a difference and offering women opportunities in a male dominated industry.

Closing Keynote Speaker

Traci Mitchell

Disrupting the Universe

Making Magic Real


​As a journalist, Traci has spent decades telling stories of tragedies and triumphs, listening to victims and victors, and meeting people who wear the armor of heroes and heroines - people who are making the impossible possible. Here's what she discovered.

Women are extraordinary. Each and every one of us was born with unique gifts and talents that give us superpowers. We just need to learn how to use them. Let's break the cycle of fear, self doubt and limiting beliefs. Uncover your gifts. Own your worth. Step into your purpose and become more focused, more productive and more fulfilled. You'll be inspired to find the courage to take your next big leap and start making magic real.
