Start 2019 with Inspiration & Intention – Role models for Career Switch & Life Change 

Role models for Career Switch & Life Change for 2019 

by Paris for Her #acityforher & Adobe

She believed she could, so she did.
– R.S. Grey

Every human being is unique.
Some people try to blend in with the majority.
Still, they are unique.
Some people take their uniqueness, use it to create the life they want.
Fortunately some of these unique persons are ready to share their own story and make the listener spend a unique moment.
While listening, asking, and sharing your own experiences with others you will learn more about yourself, discover your own purpose to drive your life and business forward in a way that consistently fills you up.
Join us on January 22nd, 2019 for a unique moment of sharing.
Paris for Her will be delighted to welcome three incredible women with three incredible stories in the wonderful Adobe office, Avenue Kléber in Paris.
During this inspiring evening together, Hazel Manuel, Dianie Bigand, & Eileen Callahan will share their unique stories with us, speak about the choices they’ve made in life, what they resulted from and how they achieved it.
