January 2017 Gathering: Owning Your Story


 Join us at Culture C-Street to sip coffee, make friends, & learn how to own your story.

"When we deny our story, it defines us. When we own our story, we can write a brave new ending."  - Brene' Brown

After taking a few months off, we are excited to kick off 2017 with a topic we believe to be oh-so-important: Owning Your Story. Far too often, we walk through life denying our past and present circumstances and choices. We hustle for our worth, ignore our realities, or blame others for our hurts. Lets face it, we all use these coping mechanisms to manage stress in our lives, but they aren't healthy, and they often go unchecked and unnoticed. Without learning how to OWN our stories- including the messiness that lies within them and within us- we cannot grow and move past the parts we need to amend or change.

You'll hear from the following speakers:

MEGAN FITZGERALD is a mother, digital marketing producer, and giftware designer based out of the Des Moines, Iowa, area. Megan has first hand experience with bravely owning her story of battling and overcoming alcoholism. She regularly speaks and writes about her experience vulnerably and openly, and has learned great sharable wisdom along her journey of recovery.

MADISON HEDLUND is a life coach and co-founder of The Bravery Board. She regularly works with women through the process of owning their stories, and has a passion for the topic. Madison will share about her own journey and how she teaches and guides women through the very process that helped her write her story of beauty, thriving, and resilience.
