( ENSPIRE Community ) We Rise To Inspire! – Women In Business The We Rise to Inspire! – Women had its first Women’s Empowerment Event by The Work Your Money Show Host Michelle Wong during Women’s History Month. We Rise to Inspire! – Women’s Event is dedicated to the business & entrepreneurial success of all women. The purpose of this event is to inspire other women to start their own business or pursue a dream profession.
Any time women come together with a collective intention, it’s a powerful thing. Whether it’s sitting down making a quilt, in a kitchen preparing a meal, in a club reading the same book, or around the table playing cards, or planning a birthday party, when women come together with a collective intention, magic happens. Phylicia RashadThe conference had a mission to focus on getting people together to empower, uplift and better other women. We were amazed at the people who participated in the event. Each person came from a different industry with similar situations to encourage in many different ways. We spoke to WYM group founder and “We Rise To Inspire Conference” founder Michelle Wong, She started we rise to inspire because there are so many people that are going through circumstances and they need someone to support them, to be around them, to inspire, and motivate them. More so women because as Michelle likes to call it we have a “sisterhood”, do to the fact we are a “sisterhood” we have to get together and encourage each other give them some type of inspiration to go out and pursue something they like to do. This event is for that, for those people who have restrictions because of circumstances, because of their cultural background, because of the domestic situation that there are in, they don’t have an identity or a place to turn to. Having a place like this where they see other women coming out and talking about their own experiences, their journey, their obstacles, it could show them that they can do it too.
