Monthly POWER Event


Welcome to the POWER Monthly Meetup!

Perhaps you are a small business owner, a health professional, lotion & potion maker, graphic designer, writer, or food creator. Whatever your passion, this event is designed to connect with women from all over Portland, create new friendships, and generate ideas to advance your business, career, or creative outlet.

This is a structured event that starts at 10:00 am sharp. The online chat room will open at 9:45 am to allow time to settle in before we begin!

We all get a moment to speak in front of the group allowing the rest of us to see how we each might be able to work together & empower one another. This is an opportunity to practice your public speaking and for some of us an excellent opportunity for personal growth!



Each month there will be two powerful speakers who will go into more detail about their story so that we can learn about them on a deeper level. More often than not these mini-talks will leave you with new tools and a fresh perspectives to incorporate into your life.

Lael Petersen

" Creating Better Habits: How Easy Can it Be?"


We all know what we should be doing to take better care of ourselves, so why is it so hard?
Too many people are still relying on outdated methods like willpower and motivation when it comes to changing their habits. They don't understand how the brain creates new habits, so inevitably fail in their efforts to change. Lael will teach you why changing your habits feels hard, and how to make it easier. You'll learn practical and effective ways to drop your bad habits and start better ones. You'll leave with new tools and renewed inspiration to change your habits for good.


Lael Petersen is a therapist-turned-life coach with over 20 years of experience helping people thrive. Her personal healing journey through addiction and cancer combined with her professional expertise create workshops that are both practical and motivating. Lael is a mother, a yogi, and a lifelong learner who believes everyone is capable of making the changes they want in their lives.


Tickets are $15. We usually sell out and space is limited so if you plan on coming we encourage you to purchase your ticket beforehand. If you can’t attend we ask you to provide 24 hours notice and we will transfer your ticket to the next month. This only applies if you let us know beforehand so we can allow someone else the opportunity to attend.


As a result of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have transitioned to virtual meetings online via Zoom. Once we can meet in person again, we will be announcing a new magical location for our gatherings.

This is a structured event that starts at 10:00 am sharp. The online chat room will open at 9:45 am to allow time to settle in before we begin!

This is a no-sales event so this may not be the right 'fit' if you are looking to pitch your business or wares. We support each other through community and connection.

There are a limited number of scholarship tickets available so if funds are tight and you want to check us out for the first time please email me at with a brief description of what you do and why you want to join our community! We all know what it’s like when you are just getting started and we don’t want to turn great people away.
