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 12:00pm sharp. Doors open at 11:30am to allow time to get a beverage, snack and mingle before we begin! We encourage you to come early and make new connections!

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.
