When the most powerful and inspirational mujer comes to town…you know we have to be there! Our amigos over at Toyota invited us to Oprah’s Life You Want Tour during her stop in the 305 and it was amazing. This woman really can do it all! She created this “weekend workshop” tour that visited major cities across the US…for 2 days, Oprah shared her powerful message of hope, encouragement, and empowerment. Her mission is to show us how to see the possibilities of a new life—the life you want- and that everyone who attend the weekend will leave transformed and ready to take charge and make it happen!
Prior to the Friday night welcome from Oprah, I joined an amazing group of women for lovely dinner where I had the opportunity to hear directly from a Toyota executive about their dedication to personal empowerment. Oprah’s message, of course, is a perfect fit for Toyota, who invited us as part of their “Let’s Go Places” movement. As a special addition to the weekend, Toyota’s Standing O-Vation honored remarkable local women who are beating the odds and inspiring others to live a bold life.

Some of her inspirational messages that, while simple, are incredible powerful if you are able to apply them to your life:
Lessons from Oprah’s #LifeYouWant Tour
-Listen to your gut
-Learn when to say “no”
-Discover the value of letting go
-No one is perfect!
The quote below was one of my favorite from the evening…especially powerful since it was during the closing moments of her talk. I put it into graphic form so that it can be shared or passed around! Go for it!
So again, I must give a huge GRACIAS to Toyota for providing us this opportunity! Also, I highly recommend the Life You Want Tour if you have the opportunity to attend. It was such an inspirational weekend!
