Rise & Shine Conference Signature Conference

NOVEMBER 13, 2019  |  8:30 AM - 5:30 PM

Attendees must have an “Inspiration Lab Signature Conference” ticket to attend.

Speakers and panelists at the Wilmington Convention Center will cover topics including negotiation, self-care and boundaries, leadership, personal and professional resilience, creating community and culture in the workplace, and more.

The speaker lineup is incredible, and you can count on doing some self-reflection, being inspired, and learning action steps for every facet of your life. We believe you bring your whole self to work and your whole self home, so why separate the two? You're going to walk away saying, "This is exactly what I needed."

We're providing creature comforts, like coffee in the morning, a mid-morning biscuit bar(!), lemonade and tea in the afternoon, and truly delicious food during the Happiest Hour — all complimentary. Just for fun, we'll also have fairy hair — because what's better than sparkle you can take home? And because this event was designed by working women, for working women, we'll also have an inviting and comfortable pump room for any breastfeeding moms.

Real Estate & Marketing Intensive

 Add-On Conference & Happy Hour

NOVEMBER 14, 2019  |  8:00 AM - 5:30 PM  |  5:30 PM-7:30 PM Off-site

Attendees must have a “Real Estate & Marketing Intensive” ticket to attend. 

Speakers and panelists are flying in from all over the country (and Canada!) to speak about real estate and marketing. We'll be covering topics like building your brand and team, building efficiency into your business, video marketing, Facebook marketing, influencer marketing, Instagram insider tips, and, of course, the all-important self-care.

Topics to dive into deeper during our mastermind sessions include advanced video marketing, how to leverage Facebook ads and groups, best practices for independent brokers, PR and earned media, client event ideas and strategies, using blogs and email newsletters to convert, and creating a healthy culture.

We'll be providing coffee in the morning and a few surprises along the way. There will be a cash bar open in the afternoon before our mastermind sessions, and you don't want to miss our Happiest Hour at Edward Teach Brewery in historic Downtown Wilmington. Edward Teach Brewery is a short walk from the hotel, and there we will have a visit from the brewery's mascots, miniature donkeys (yes, we are serious) named Friday and Ernie. Why donkeys? Well, last year we ended our conference with puppies, so we figured we'd just continue the small animal theme.

And, once again, we'll have a private, comfortable pump room for any breastfeeding moms.

    The Inspiration Lab™ is for any woman, anywhere in the world, who wants to live a better life from the inside out. We have events in our coastal dream town of Wilmington, NC, but there are still many opportunities to engage with the Inspiration Lab™ online. Online programs include Banner Year Blueprint workshops, as well as workshops around selected topics throughout the year.
  • What If I Want to Cancel My Membership?
    Cancel anytime, even though we’d be super sad to see you leave. You can cancel by emailing our Membership Manager, Lisa Barrett, at lisa@theinspirationlab.co.
  • My Credit or Debit Card Got lost or stolen & I need to change the billing info. How do I do that?
    What a bummer! We totally understand. Shoot an email to lisa@theinspirationlab.co and she’ll help you get it fixed.

    Squads are new in 2019 and are for members who are interested in a particular topic or in similar life circumstances. Squads will meet at least six times a year, but possibly more. Each squad has a leader for the entire year who will coordinate dates and times for meetings. Our first three squads are: Small Business Owners Squad (must have EIN # to participate), Leader Stephanie Lanier New To Town Squad (members who have lived in Wilmington for three years or less) , Leader Lisa Barrett Single Ladies (members who are single and are interested in traveling and/or attending events together), Leader, Arlene Reyes
