Does your work or personal life need a jolt of outside-the-box thinking and decadence? Do you have everything you’ve ever wanted, but find happiness is still fleeting? What does your body language say about your happiness?
Maybe you need a vacation or a pep talk or possibly some serious me-time. The first annual Smart Woman Summit June 24−26 will offer all of the above growth opportunities, plus luxury accommodations at the Forbes Four Star Trump National Doral Miami, creating a well-balanced program for women seeking inspiration and wellness.
“I love talking to women who live by check-list lives,” says keynote speaker Christine Hassler. “We’re going to bust through this myth that as soon as you get the job or the guy or the body or the friend, you’ll be happy.”
Hassler’s presentation is entitled “The Myth of Having It All.” The life coach and author has appeared on The Today Show, CNN, ABC, CBS, Fox, E!, Style and PBS, often discussing how to turn one’s personal quest for fulfillment into an opportunity to clarify what is truly important and thus uncover the keys to happiness.
“We can all relate to having this idea of the way we think our lives were supposed to go, and pushing and pushing ourselves to achieve it, and then when we don’t, what happens? Or even when we do and we’re still not happy, then we’re really left grasping for what to do next.”
Hassler’s keynote address is designed to sway women away from the pressure to have it all and replacing that drive with learning to “be your all, instead. I assure you it will be a lot more fulfilling.”
An expert on millennials in the workplace, Hassler’s latest book is Expectation Hangover: Overcoming Disappointment in Work, Love and Life. The premise for this book is that when life does not live up to expectations, many people experience an expectation hangover. Hassler’s insights serve as a road map to negotiate obstacles and disappointments in efficient and empowering ways while achieving personal growth.

The inaugural Smart Woman Summit is the brainchild of Marin Bright, Smart Meetings founder and CEO who has combined her love of events with her passion for female empowerment to create this enlightenment opportunity.
