About This Event:

Do you find yourself stuck in a rut sometimes, and feel like you are doing the same thing year in and year out? One of my biggest fears is boredom. I am always dreaming up new ideas and adventures to go on, so I don’t feel stuck.

Innovation is exciting: dreaming up new things or new ways to do things, looking at things differently, changing the lense we view life with. This month we are talking about “thinking bigger – playing big”. What does that mean to you? Who and what inspires you to push harder?

Does playing big overwhelm you a bit? Are you already overwhelmed and can’t move forward? Sometimes it is easier to think big than play big. When I start playing big, I tend to back off and say “keep it small and keep it all” . Then someone told me why don’t you “go big and be a pig”:) I wonder if there is happy medium. I do know you can start small and take baby steps to big. Let’s explore and have fun thinking bigger! 

Come join us at CRAVEfuel for an inspiring night of shared stories and meaningful conversations.  We’ll help each other unburden, unload and identify the people and places that are filling us up versus the environments that our depleting our energy.

 At CRAVEfuel, we get to heart of what’s going on, what needs to change, and how to take that first step. No topic is off limits! Join us for a night of authenticity, vulnerability and meaningful connections.

  • CRAVEfuel lasts 2+ hours. Includes wine and light snacks.
  • The first 20 minutes features a speaker or panel of speakers on the evening’s subject.
  • Small group discussions follow where each person’s challenges are workshopped.
  • If you are a woman in transition, a woman longing for “what’s next,” or looking for a community and friendships, this event is for you.

LEARN MORE

Urban Campfire is designed to engage women in authentic conversations about business, relationships and life. Our mission is to provide the spark for women to experience sweet moments of inspiration, both business and personal, through joyful kinship and conversation. It’s not a conference. It’s a fire. For thousands of years, women have gathered around fires to support each other in navigating the business of everyday life. Through actionable learning and storytelling that will keep you on the edge of your seat, the day is designed to help you cultivate your full potential, in life and in business.

We’ve asked ten incredible women from around the country, “If you had ten minutes to tell the world what you’ve learned, what you know to be true…what would that be?” In TED-style talks they’ll share their secrets to connect to what matters most in life and business. Post-campfire we’ll top off our day with happy hour, food trucks, S’mores (because everyone knows you can’t have a campfire without S’mores!).

You’re not here to impress, you’re here to be yourself.
You’ll walk away with new friends, new ideas and a new perspective.
You’ve ignited that fire within yourself. Now it’s time to share it with the world.

About The Speakers:

blossomheadshotBlossom Braemer

Blossom began her career as a woman entrepreneur when she was just a kid. Her love of connection and networking led her to organize a neighborhood babysitting service. She was an active member of her High Schools DECA club, and continued her love for business and marketing into her adult years. She launched her high end floral business in 1993. She has a background in design and decor, and graduated with her MBA from the University of Central Florida. She spent the next 15 years perfecting her passion for business. Attending seminars, training classes and boot camps helped her develop a well rounded understanding of the holistic thinking that successful entrepreneurs must possess. ”During that time, I often wondered why there seemed to be a void when it came to good resources for home based businesses. I longed for a place where I could get advice, bounce ideas around with my peers, and be inspired” says Blossom. ”Small business owners, especially women owned businesses, are solo-preneures.” “They are stuck in a home office, isolated from collaboration. Isolation is proven to hinder a persons professional growth.” S he went on to say, “I am so much more productive when part of a collaborative environment and that was the leading reason why I founded Posh Coworking”
