The Powerful You! Movement
There is a quiet and persistent uprising around the planet. It is pervasive in homes, communities and businesses. It is a gentle nudge and at the same time it is a gigantic push. There are hundreds – no, thousands – no, hundreds of thousands of women who are tapping into their personal power and who are now ready to unleash their passion and purpose on the world.
Who are these women? They are you and me. They are every woman who has a dream and a vision. They are every woman who has decided that she will no longer play it small to be safe and ‘fit in’. These women are the heart and backbone of our businesses, homes and communities. These women are ready to step into their power and be the women they were born to be. They are ready to open themselves to the world and to co-create the world as they wish it to be, as they envision it to be, as they know is good and right and true.
These women are ready to take on the world…and the world is ready for them.
And it all starts with YOU…
Experience Powerful You!
“Powerful You! is such an important part of my life and business. The friends, partners, relationships and alliances that I have developed cannot all be covered here. I never really was a person who could get into networking. I always felt uncomfortable. Yet, in the environment of any of the PY! events I feel like I am with friends, taking, learning, growing and sharing; and amazingly from this I have developed liaisons that have assisted me in every area of my life, including my business. They call it networking with a heart, it is true, it is… and I love it! That is why I am now a facilitator for PY! and love watching it just grow to assist so many more women to grow not only in their business but also in their personal development.”

“I am so glad to be a PY member. The organization with a heart has opened up a myriad of business and social opportunities. I have met three of my most cherished clients through PY and find the organization to be creative, loving and effective. Being a member of PY has more than paid for itself and the emotional, social as well as business rewards have been wonderful.”
~ Deanna Trust ~ Feng Shui Expert
"I was referred to Powerful You by my friend Grace Kelly Nartowicz. I attended a meeting and was so impressed by the kind and compassionate women that I joined right on the spot. I normally do not join anything without sleeping on my decision at least for 24 hours but this time was different. I just felt so incredibly comfortable and when I left the meeting I was not only inspired but I felt great and feel this way after attending every meeting. Thank you so much for starting this wonderful group."

"Working with Kathy, Sue, Sheri and our fantastic trainers on this project was absolutely one of the most professional, inspiring and fun projects I've ever undertaken! I had listened in on the informational call and gotten information on becoming a published author for the project several times and each time - I felt a tug on my heart to jump on board. I'm SO happy I finally decided to sign on! It is truly one of the best things I've ever done! You have all made this entire process so smooth, so seamless and so easy for all of us! I can't thank you all enough! Your words of encouragement and cheering us on along the way made it feel like we were all part of a "family" of women who have a deep desire to help others on our journey! Holding our book in my hands the first time and really seeing my own story in print was indescribable! You helped me do it and I thank you from the bottom of my heart! You've thought of everything we needed and gave it all to us and then some! I feel truly blessed to be one of the co-authors and part of this inspiring group of women! I saw doors opening for me almost instantaneously! I simply can't thank you enough!"

"What impressed me most about Powerful You were the facilitators. I've been to many networking groups and events but this was the first one where I felt that the people were truly interested in how they could help me and not just themselves. The second thing was the website. The message was so clear to me that this organization is about networking with a heart. I am so proud to be a member and a new facilitator.

"For those of you that know me, you know that 2008 was the most trying and difficult year for me personally. However, being a member of such a POWERFUL group enabled me to get through a terrible time. I must thank you Sue and Kathy for creating POWERFUL YOU and for choosing Stephanie Giraulo as a facilitator. Stephanie as hard working as she is made time to contact me in my time of need. Stephanie is truly a gem and I am grateful to have Stephanie in my life. I would be truly lost without her.Powerful You is powerful in more ways than most member realize. The members are genuine and are truly a rare find. You will not find this with any other networking organization.I would also like to thank Roselle, publisher and editor-in-chief of SI Parent Magazine for her integrity, honesty,knowledge, values and her belief in me. Powerful You is a true testimony of women helping women. Having good intentions and giving first truly gives your life purpose."

“On July 28th, we had the Business Launch of the Powerful YOU Women's Network in Broward County, Florida. We were not really certain how many women would be in attendance so we did not raise our expectations very high specially being in a Summer Month. As the meeting started, women started walking into the room. Each women brought in radiating energy, enthusiasm, and a hunger for connection. The network took off like a rocket. Friendships were created, expressions of connection were made,and goals for the future were created. It was AMAZING. The Powerful YOU Network is magical, like no other networking I have ever experienced. "
~ Doris R. Espinosa-Gomez, Set Me FREE, Arbonne did it for Me!
“Like with any thing that is good, there are numerous "knock-offs" out there pretending to be Powerful You :)! I was invited to attend a few meetings and must say that none of these groups have the spirit and heart that Powerful You and it's members pocess. For them, it's ALL about the end game and financial success. While most of us will admit that financial independence is a goal, it is not just about that. We are enjoying the journey that will make us better people and business owners. If we forget about the power of intention and spirit, I doubt we will cross the finish line! "

“Let me get right to the point: I've been to a lot of networking groups and the bottom line is there is NO other networking group like Powerful You. Naturally, it provides the opportunity to meet other business owners and to cultivate professional relationships. More importantly, it provides a meaningful and positive experience and outlet to talk about real-life issues that influence both your professional AND your personal growth; no other group I've ever been to does that! (And THAT'S powerful!) "

“What a refreshing website with fabulous features. Very few websites currently have audio bio capabilities but Powerful You does. I find this website to be easy to navigate and wonderfully designed. I hope to meet many of the Powerful You Members." “

"Initially I was nervous about making the commitment to write a chapter for "Journey To Joy", but the resources and support I received from Powerful You! Publishing made all of my fears disappear. They definitely over delivered!! It is amazing how being a published author instantly raised my credibility among potential clients and other business owners in my network. Having a tangible product has given me a marketing tool to get speaking engagements and media opportunities. Thank you so much, Sue and Kathy! I am already outlining a story for your next publication.

“ Of all the networking groups I have joined in starting my business, Powerful You! has brought me the best return for my money, both personally and professionally. I have increased my client base through the monthly meetings and from my profile on the group's exceptional website. I've been nurtured and empowered by the presentations and discussions at the monthly meetings, as well as being able to hone my own speaking and presentation skills at these forums. Most importantly, I have met a number of women with whom I barter services, expanding my knowledge base of other professions as diverse as financial consultation and massage. In turn, I can refer my own clients to a wealth of exceptional professionals. I have formed meaningful friendships in this group, something not so often done in more "uptight" and "male dominated" groups. Powerful You! has been a terrific resource for me both as a woman and a professional. “

“Powerful You! has been an integral part of the growth in my business and my perspective on women in business.”
~ Ellen Palestine ~ Professional Organizer
“In my opinion, Powerful You! offers such a unique assortment of opportunities to expand not only your business but personally. Breakfast meetings, luncheon meetings, multi-chapter meetings and tele-networking all offer a slightly different approach on networking and personal growth. Because of that, you can choose a networking venue that suites your schedule. Every venue is well thought out and professionally delivered. The exposure to other women and businesses is huge. The one common thread between all of is this is the type of women that are drawn to Powerful You. They are warm, supportive and possess a willingness to share information and experiences.”
~ Susan M. Krien
“Powerful You! is the first networking group of any kind I experienced. That was about 6 months ago and because I felt so good about it I have since exposed myself to several other local groups expecting more of a good thing. What I have to tell you is that the concept and mission statements of networking groups can be exactly the same but without the genuine feelings of the parties involved nothing will compare. When "networking with a heart" was penned as a tagline for this group it became a thread that runs throughout. My business will grow as a result of my membership in Powerful You! ~ I am certain of that. While members grow their businesses so will their need for more comprehensive financial planning. I love PY! and as I have already said "it is almost like a vacation being together with this diverse group of women". Almost immediately upon joining I mentioned a non profit that I am involved with ~ within a matter of weeks new artwork was designed for our local chapters marketing campaign, better than we ever have seen and presented as a gift. All in all, Powerful You! is a gift to me, and I again thank Sue & Kathy for founding this group. “

"If you're ready to launch your career, become a published author. Powerful You! Publishing is the way to go. You will be personally guided by the team through writing and marketing phases. The greatest part of working with this experienced team of Amazon bestseller publishers is just that, you get a whole team of publishers and co-authors to share the experience and success with. I highly recommend joining any book project Powerful You! Publishing does. "
