Why you are meant to be at the SHINE SUMMIT


Deep down you know you have more to give with your business and life and you are ready to truly shine.  You are ready to be a guiding light to your friends, family, clients, teams, and every woman who comes after.  


You are ready to be courageous, ready to align with who you really are and how you are meant to serve.  You are ready to break through the barriers and make even more of a positive impact on those you serve while creating financial wealth and abundance.  


You are ready to be in community with other women who support your dreams, want to see you shine bright, and who will hold you and your dreams as both powerful and possible.  


You have seen other incredible women step into their light and now it is your turn.  


The reality is….


You feel overwhelmed with all the to do’s, the demands of business, family, and everything in between.


You are unclear of what you truly want and you keep repeating the same patterns and are feeling stuck in your business and life.  


You either create goals you never actually achieve or perhaps you don’t even set them because you don’t know where to start.  You have eroded trust with yourself and your confidence has been dimmed.  


You are often crippled by fears of what will people think, am I really good enough or deserve success, and what if I fail? 


You are ready to discover your inner light and let it shine so that you can attract incredible clients, teams, relationships and create the business and life of your dreams.  The wisest part of you knows it is possible and knows that now is the time to get out of your head, into your heart, and you are ready to create an action plan that will empower you to ignite your business and life.  


That is why we created this incredible one day summit.   At SHINE, we have put together an incredible day that will take you from struggling to see your own light to BECOMING a guiding light for yourself, for your clients, for your community, and for your friends and family.

The 2020 SHINE SUMMIT brings head-liner and guiding light Sarah Herron!

Sarah helps women by cultivating confidence and authenticity. She shows women what they're capable of through adventure, travel and authentic, body positive-living. She is a filmmaker, a keynote speaker and a content collaborator. 

If you are one of the few who does not follow the Bachelorette, Sarah is a Colorado native, lover of the outdoors, and lover of keeping it real. Wanting to find love, she signed up to become a bachelorette on ABC’s The Bachelor. Although she didn’t find love on the show, she realized, that before all else, she needed to love herself.

Sarah is a creative director, workshop facilitator, storyteller, mentor and an avid outdoors girl. She was also born without the lower half of her left arm but it hasn't stopped her from much. Sarah skis, SUPs,  climbs, camps and does a mean shavasana! All things Sarah does is in the pursuit of showing women what's possible - despite our limiting beliefs.

Sarah believes power is found through vulnerability and sharing. She has been known to be unapologetically transparent in sharing her thoughts, self-talk and her victories. Sarah's hope is to empower and inspire women to connect and find safety in risk taking and vulnerability.

We are beyond thrilled to introduce Sarah as our Shine keynote speaker!
