Connector Conference
Connector Conference @ Artisphere
Oct 13 all-day
Are you tired of prioritizing everything else over your own success? It’s ok, so are we. Guess what? We did something about it! And we are taking you with us! On Saturday, October 13 we guarantee that YOU are your number one focus. The Connector Conference by Charmed Cardinals is a one day experiential event that allows participants to reconnect with what may feel like a fragmented life. With this event we are combating the normal internal dialog of “I’ll do some networking on Tuesday, sign up for that workshop 2 weeks from Wednesday, get my girl time in on Saturday and focus on myself by journaling in the early mornings”. Come on now, we can do better than that. Lets super charge our success and do it all! In one day! The Connector Conference is NOT your typical conference. We have designed it to fulfill you in ways that will not only propel you into a more positive and fruitful future, but also scratch an itch you may not have known was there. Our approved speakers and break out experts will spend the day having attendees connect with their callings, communities, creativity and confidence through their own individual unique and experienced ways. It’s going to be deep, ladies. But not scary deep. There will be transformations and growth and it will be an absolutely inspiring and beautiful day in herstory. You wont leave the way you came. You WILL know your worth. You know you but who are we and why should you spend the day with us? Since 2015 the Charmed Cardinals women’s empowerment society has been providing an outlet for overextended high-achieving women to reconnect to themselves and high vibe friends through thoughtfully curated in-person gatherings. We have a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Sometimes professional development, maybe personal wellness, some crafting stuff, lots of laughs, and always great connections. With the Connector Conference it is intended to be a years worth of society experiences in a day. As mentioned, our members are all extremely obligated and engaged women so we provide them with the opportunity to learn, network and grow in a positive and inviting environment each month. And we want to make that opportunity available to you! If you are a female founder, solopreneur, creative, or someone with a mindset that is looking to branch out on your own at some point, this is THE event for you to attend. You will have an entire day to focus solely on your professional or personal (or both) growth. All while being surrounded by and engaging with some of the most collaborative, sincerest and brilliant women in the DC metropolitan area. In addition to our main stage speakers who will address all attendees, we will also have more than a dozen break out sessions in 3 tracks.

HOWL-O-WEEN PACK WAK 4:00 pm
HOWL-O-WEEN PACK WAK @ Fairfax Corner
Oct 28 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Have you ever had a stranger comment on your dogs behavior? Has your dog lunged, barked or growled when walking down the street? Have you asked people for space and received dirty looks? It’s not helpful at all. This is why I started doing Pack walks through Pack Leader Help. This is a way for owners of the community to come together and support one another and to practice socializing skills with our dogs without the worry or embarrassment that our dogs aren’t perfectly behaved. This is what community is all about. The pack walk will begin with a walk on the walking trail on Monument drive and then go around the store fronts and seating area to practice keeping your dog calm in social settings. Doggy snacks will be provided. Costumes are encouraged but not required. This is a perfect opportunity to practice socialization with you dog who hasn’t always been great with being around other dogs and humans. This is a JUDGEMENT FREE ZONE for dog owners and families who are working towards creating a balanced and well behaved pup.
