April meeting at FVC Bank with Mali Phonpadith, Founder of SOAR Community Network

By Evelyn Powers | May 7, 2018 | Comments Off on April meeting at FVC Bank with Mali Phonpadith, Founder of SOAR Community Network

Our Arlington Chapter meeting last night was once again a wonderful gathering of amazing women. It would not have been possible without the support of LaDonna Simon and FVC Bank as our hosts, and Mali Phonpadith, Founder of SOAR Community Network, as our guest speaker and her wonderful talk on the innovative vision mapping process that helps clients SOAR (see, own, articulate and release) their message and mission more authentically in alignment with their soul purpose.

Thanks to AWE sponsors Doug Rosen of Arrowine and Rosie Gordon of Sushi-Zen, who help make every monthly meeting even more awesome.
