SELF CARE – A panel about work-life balance

Work-life balance is a myth! You might have heard that it is. But honestly, it’s a lifestyle. For creative entrepreneurs like us who always hustling every day (and sometimes every weekend as well), work-life balance can be a myth. If this sounds like you, come join Chicago creative entrepreneurs at this panel where they will be sharing their story on how they manage to create balance in their work and life plus give you their insights about self-care along with tips and tricks to avoid burnouts while working on your creative projects.


Golden Women Foundation and Gorgeous Within have come together to create the first ever women’s empowerment conference, Grace Through Fire: Entrepreneur & Career Edition, where women entrepreneurs and business leaders speak about how they survived the most difficult crisis in their business or lives.

We are looking for successful, resilient, graceful women with a passion to uplift other women entrepreneurs and career focused. We believe by them sharing their compelling brands and stories they will encourage and empower the next generation to continue after their dreams. We feel their stories would be such a motivation to the 3,000 attendees.

Grace Through Fire: Entrepreneur & Career Edition will take place in Chicago, IL on Saturday March 26, 2016.
Location TBD
Main Speakers TBD
