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.
