It is a given, conferences can sometimes be expensive. But when you attend the right one, magic happens! You’re empowered, you feel inspired, and you make great new connections. This past weekend Women On The Rise Forum & Expo took over the Laguardia Plaza Hotel in Queens New York for two spectacular days of inspiring keynotes, informative panels, boundary-pushing masterclasses, shopping, and networking.

Hosted by International Speaker and Best Selling Author -- Dr. Stacie NC Grant with her intoxicating personality and smile; the event delivered quotable moments from speakers including the warrior queen Bershan Shaw, award-winning journalist -- Asha McKenzie, and CEO of Vera Moore Cosmetics -- Vera Moore. Did I mention that Women On The Rise also partnered with HSN American Dreams and Lili Gil Valletta -- Award-winning entrepreneur, TV personality, co-founder and CEO of CIEN+ and creator of Dreamers Venture -- to give preselected entrepreneurs a chance to pitch their products? Suffice it to say, it was pretty epic.
