However, of Cristy’s most proud accomplishment is becoming a certified Kundalini Yoga instructor and Reiki master. Cristy attributes these disciplines to her professional and personal success, as well as her ability to hone the creative energy that fuels stellar content as a top influencer.

Have you ever felt like you are in a creative limbo? During her keynote, Cristy hopes to inspire #WeAllGrow attendees to set free the creative animal that dwells within them by understanding that a “creative block” is a symptom rather than a constant. Following Yogi Bhajan’s—master of Kundalini Yoga— premise, Cristy will share the 7 basics steps to achieve happiness and creative balance, while sharing her personal walk through self-exploration and healing.

NatalieBoden-WeAllGrow-1Say Yes to Growth: How One Latina Mom Built a Multi-Million Dollar Business with Natalie Boden

As Managing Director and Founder of BodenPR, Natalie Boden is no stranger to launching campaigns, pursing balance and analyzing growth. Named one of PRWeek's 2014 "Top 40 under 40" Heavy Hitters in PR, Natalie has succeeded in building BodenPR into one of the country's fastest growing U.S Hispanic PR & Social Media agencies, scaling the business across offerings from social media to content development and influencer engagement. In just the last few years, with clients such as Target, McDonald's and AT&T/Cricket Wireless business, BodenPR was nominated for PR Week's "Best Multicultural Campaign of the Year" for McDonald's #ViveTuJuego.

In addition to growing a million dollar company, Natalia is also a full time, Latina mom and champion of women and girls’ empowerment causes. Natalie’s work as an advocate at Count Me In for Women's Economic Independence and member of the Latina Advisory Board of Girls Inc. fuels her creativity and passion, translating to growth in her professional life as well.

During her keynote presentation, Natalie hopes to inspire #WeAllGrow attendees to say yes to growth by understanding the creative and practical elements that impact your brand.

Do you ever feel like “growth” is an illusive word plagued by missed opportunities or failed initiatives? Do you ever feel like you’re standing in your own way?

By celebrating how one Latina mom dared to build a multi-million dollar business centered on the culture and language of her childhood, Natalie will uncover the methodology of developing landmark campaigns and how those principles universally apply to your brand’s potential to grow beyond your wildest dreams. From one Latina mom and business woman to the next, Natalie hopes to inspire you to actualize your own growth by daring to say yes.
