Group organizers Rhonda McDaniel, owner of A Caring Touch Skin Therapy in Brandon, and Pearl Chiarenza, owner of Bodyworks Health & Wellness Center, will also speak about their areas of expertise. The pair plan to host a quarterly brunch to assist women who want to be more successful in all aspects of their life, by improving family relationships, finding financial success, building healthier bodies through proper nutrition and exercise, seeking spiritual support and enjoying personal pampering.

“As women we often put our family’s needs before ours and our mission is to teach women that in order to take care of our families we first must take care of ourselves,” said Chiarenza. “We want to provide women with the tools to help them live financially successful and healthier lives.”

In addition to the quarterly lunches, Women’s Successful Living is accepting applications from women who would benefit from one-on-one mentoring. Selected applicants will receive three months of complimentary mentoring services with one or all of its speakers. Women can nominate themselves or someone else.

“We want this to also be an opportunity to empower women thru mentoring in our community,” said Chiarenza.

Ticket prices are $50 for early birds (purchased by September 17), $55 for regular admission and $60 at the door.
