"This year I decided to think outside of the box and create a crazy awesome Live2Lead experience. I decided to hold Women Who Live2Lead and made the day exclusive to women only. WOW! What a HUGE SUCCESS! I teamed up with a local winery, cosmetics company and local clothing boutique, along with my clothing company and subscription box company to pull off this day devoted to women. We had a FULL HOUSE and sold over $6,000 (and even more following the event) in classes, coaching, workshops, etc. 100% of the women who attended BOUGHT something! It was absolutely the most gratifying event I have held to date. I'm still getting comments, feedback and have secured 5 major speaking engagements just from this event. I can't wait until next year!"

"We leverage Live2Lead as a fundraiser. I purchase the event and then donate it to the Irving Schools Foundation. This was our 2nd event in this partnership and our biggest Live2Lead yet, we raised more than $13,000 which allowed us to provide two $5,500 scholarships. In the futre these will be STEM scholarships which supports my focus in the technology space. We had almost 200 Students who attended the Live2Lead event in addition to 90 business leaders. The students who attended will be eligible to apply for the scholarships through the Irving Schools Foundation. The event was such a success that our 2016 Title Sponsor, has already pledged their commitment for 2017."

"On Friday, Dec 2, our guests were greeted at Downtown Disney by Anaheim Police Cadets and escorted to the big, beautiful Christmas Tree to get their photos as memorabilia of the day they received the gift of leadership. They entered the theatre to learn and support Cops 4 Kids Anaheim. We served 128 city employees, entrepreneurs, educators, community organizations, and volunteers. They loved it. They are still talking about it. Our sponsors included Chick-Fil-A, Starbucks, City of Anaheim Public Utilities, Anaheim Municipal Employees Association, Orange Karate School, and Cornerstone Communications. There were many things we did this year differently to create the experience we did to have the success we had. Can't wait to up-level the experience next year."
