On October 25th & 26th 2013, women from across the U.S. gathered in Durham, NC to hear about finances, relationships, health and wellness, spiritual growth, and personal/professional development. The conference also highlighted women who are more than conquerors in their fight against breast cancer and domestic violence. The event honored these women in a special way from decor to actual presentations/awards to recognize them as exemplary women.

Social media was buzzing during and after the conference so we wanted to share the top 8 highlights from the perspective of our attendees. Check out the list!
