RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK – Thanks. TechWire family, for the outpouring of interest in 28 Day Reinvention Road Trip. For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, I’m including a summary so you’re in the loop.

28 Day Reinvention Road Trip is 28 days devoted to you. Rev your engine as we go on a journey of self discovery, empowerment and vision casting. I’ll be your guide, riding shotgun beside you as we hit the open road with a cohort of women united in the pursuit of reinvention. We’ll hike the wilderness trails and peer into canyons; we’ll indulge in nourishing self-care. We’ll power up in the Empowerment Zone as we prepare to jump off your Comfort Cliff—your next right step!

28 Day Reinvention Road Trip consists of four themed weeks, bookended by live Zoom group coaching sessions and ending with a 2-hour in-person workshop.
