Share – Love – Celebrate! Isn’t that what life is all about. My friend Maria Racelis is launching a speaker series called: Share – Love – Celebrate and invited me to be a speaker on June 16th. My presentation is called: Own Your Power. The Synopsis is below.

Own Your Power by Deborah Austin
You have big dreams. You want to be of service. The world needs your gifts. So what’s stopping you from making an impact in the world. It’s not money, it’s not time, and it’s not your lack of connections. The answer is YOU! In this presentation, Deborah will outline how your vision, your mindset and your tribe all impact on how you show up in the world. There comes a day when you must make the decision to live the life of your dreams. Will today be the day?

I am really looking forward to it! There are several speakers and a portion of the proceeds will go to Sick Kids It’s going to be a great event. Get your tickets here:
