About This Event:

In the spirit of Halloween, October‘s CRAVEfuel is all about FreakOuts. Have you ever had a freakout moment? Is there something in your life or business that is currently sending chills up and down your spine? Everyone has their own unique freakout stories, and we all live with fears of little things that go ‘bump’ in the night, whether real or imaginary.

We will be sharing what makes us freak out and comparing how we all express our freakouts differently within the same subjects. Join us in sharing your fears and gain new perspective at a night filled with inspiration, juicy conversation and meaningful connections.

 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.
