The California Women’s is coming up! It’ll be lot of fun, but lots of work.
Looks like I have the Minervas (teenage girls) again this year. Not a problem, I like teenage girls and we have a much better system to avoid the crowd control problems of last year.
But, I won’t be able to see Elizabeth Gilbert’s or Christine Northrup’s sessions. Maybe Sally will want to attend one of those. I will make sure I get to their book signings if at all possible.
These are the sessions for the Minervas:
You Can Do It: How to be an Architect of Change
Session Host: Pat Mitchell - President & CEO, The Paley Center for Media
Session Moderator: Vanessa Williams - Singer & Actress, Ugly Betty
Session Speakers:Laila Ali - World Class Athlete & Champion Boxer
Samantha Larson - Youngest Person to climb the "Seven Summits"
Raven-Symone - Actress, That's So Raven
Dream It, Achieve It - Steps to Your Success
Session Host: Celia Rafalko - Chief Administrative Officer, Financial Services Group, Wachovia Securities
Session Moderator: Jean Chatzky - Personal Finance Expert, Journalist & Author
Session Speakers:Sharon Shaheed - Co-Founder, Piano Play Music Systems & Make Mine a Million $ Winner

I think I will get to attend the evening session:
