We are all trying to climb our way through the crazy last couple of years and admittedly, it’s been tough. Women are trying to balance their work lives, kids at home, illnesses, and new family schedules. When was the last time you took a day just for YOU? What are you craving more of during this time in your life?

All of these thoughts inspired me and three other women to come together and reflect on what exactly we were craving. Then, we took the plunge and decided to make it happen. Create an event that would help other women just like us. We put our heads together and developed a full day’s worth of inspirational discussion topics and fun things to do and decided to call it Crave!

At Crave, women will be emboldened when they listen to six incredible women deliver high-energy, influential sessions with awesome takeaways you can implement as soon as you get home. Their stories of resiliency, goal setting, improving physical and mental health, important money matters, and more will excite you, make you laugh, and make you feel empowered – we promise!  

The Crave Women’s Conference will take place on Saturday, September 25, 2021, from 10 am to 3 pm at Tibbits Opera House in Coldwater, Michigan. (That’s only a half-hour from Angola and about an hour’s drive from Kalamazoo!) 

Leave the kids, husband, and responsibilities for a day and join us for this event of self-reflection and learning.  Attendees will walk away with the courage to make a difference in their lives and the confidence to lead themselves and others to better futures.

It will be a full day hanging with like-minded women enjoying some great food (and mimosas!), learning, and enjoying a day that is meant for YOU. 

Plus, all of the Crave vendors, artists, maker’s and musicians are women! So not only are you finding what makes you grow as a woman, you will be supporting local women-owned businesses!
