This speech is ideal for women who eat well during the day / week but struggle with overeating at night / on the weekend as a result of dealing with emotional stress. I bring awareness to the triggers that may be driving this behavior and provide strategic tips on how to react to the emotions other than using food to cope. I will also explain why diets don’t work and provide realistic steps towards building a healthy foundation instead.
Fashion retail is constantly changing, and now faster than ever with so much technology at our fingertips. Retail chains have grown to an all-time massive scale, but now many shopping malls and big box retail stores are closing their doors. Why? Consumers are becoming tired with the traditional retail experience, and are wanting more. More options, choice, and customization. This has opened the door for smaller more niche brands to move into great positions in retail. I will be discussing my leather custom sandal business called the Michael Grey Sandal Factory. We offer our customers a truly bespoke sandal experience at an amazing price point. Our customers get to choose a style select the colors, and have the option to have the pair of sandals custom fit to their exact specifications. So what her wide width narrow width, small or large sizes, we can make the perfect pair for you.
Maureen Spataro is a native of Brooklyn, NY currently living in Sayreville, NJ. A frequent speaker to groups of survivors of sexual, emotional and physical abuse her goal is to raise the funds to purchase a location that is for victims run solely by survivors. As a woman who has experienced all three types of abuse, beginning at the age of 6 years old, Maureen understands the impact and benefits to a victim’s healing when they are speaking directly with someone who has walked the path they find themselves traveling. Respectful of the medical community, Maureen is hoping through her speaking events and engagements that she can help the medical community see these benefits and that survivor to victim connection can become a part of the healing process
We are on a mission to shift the conversation, but in order to do that, we must also take action!
Women who support women are more successful. There is no more time for competition, no more time for envy, and no more time for fear.
It’s almost always true that every woman we meet is fighting a battle we know nothing about. Admiring other women’s strengths actually helps us all come out as stronger individuals.
When one of us wins, we all do. Why? We subconsciously give other women permission and courage to pursue their own dreams.
