This year’s theme is “The Art of Being a Successful Woman”
You know her: that perfect picture you have in your mind of what it means to be a success. She perfectly balances motherhood and a career, never letting anyone down. She’s financially stable enough to travel the world and give back to the charities that touch her heart yet still manages to afford an enviable shoe collection. She’s the kind of leader that anyone would want to work under; wise, gracious and accepting of new ideas, with the patience of Job. In short: she does it all and she has it all. Whew! Sounds like a lot of work! It’s time you learned that any great work of art is created in layers: built little by little into something beautifully, interestingly comprised of both intentionality and happy mistakes!
