What is LifeCheck?

LifeCheck is an annual women's workshop that will prepare you for the year ahead. You will meet a diverse panel of seasoned professionals who will teach you how to look better, feel better and BE the YOU you've always wanted to be, the YOU God created you to be! 

LifeCheck will rip apart the lie that Satan keeps feeding you -- the lie that you're alone. The room will be full of women of all ages and races who want 2018 to be the year their desires become reality. These women will become your tribe of accountabililty, support & sisterhood. 

When 2018 rolls in, that's when the real fun will begin! You will receive a free consultation to kick start your year of productivity as well as a personalized calendar to help you stay on track the entirety of 2018.
