Chicago Mosaic: Immigrant Stories of Objects Kept, Lost, or Left Behind

EMBROIDERED CROSS (Greece) pages 101-103

It's a framed embroidered cross with accents of gold and silver thread and sequins. It has been in my family for more than one hundred years, and the back of it is covered in crispy, thick masking tape. Oddly enough, it resembles perfectly golden phyllo dough wrapped around a perfectly cooked spanakopita.

The incomparable Jen Spainhour is hosting a fabulous IN-PERSON event in Chicago on Wednesday, 7/26th, at Altar Community from 6 to 8:30 PM.

Jen will chat with this panel of powerful women (I am so honored to be on this list) about various career transition topics. If you are thinking about leaving your job or, are currently job searching, or just want to network with other accomplished women, you won't want to miss the golden tips and insights from this discussion.

I took Jen's 8-week What's Next Course and it changed my life. Truly. It was all due to Jen's program and encouragement and insight that led me to obtain an MFA in creative writing. It was a realization of a life-long dream for me.

What You'll Learn:

💥 How to recognize a pivot point in your career

💥 How you can redefine what success means to you

💥 How to manage your career journey more proactively

💥 How to have a strategic, "long-game" perspective of your career

💥 What it means to "spark your power" in your career

💥 AND honest answers to your questions from female leaders

🎟️ You must register to attend. Click on the link below or in the comments to learn more about the panelist and other details about the evening. You won't want to miss it!

There will be a 🥂🥂 to toast the launch of Jen's new podcast 🎤coming out that day, on 7/26th, called "Spark Your Power: Ignite Your Career Success, Purpose & Joy."
