Grab your girlfriends
& join us for this done-for-you GNO!
Just like any great girl’s night, you’ll enjoy laughter, wine and hors d’oeuvres, but you’ll wake up the next morning refreshed, with more clarity, feeling more connected, and inspired to be more intentional about becoming the woman you know you’re meant to be, with a tribe of women who have your back, right by your side.
You’re working your tail off to be the most amazing mother, wife, friend and contributor to this world you possibly can. And sometimes you feel discouraged when you can’t keep all those plates spinning as fast as you’d like.
Girl, it can be exhausting.
On top of that, as much as you’d love to get time with your girlfriends and feel like you’re investing something in yourself, who has the time (or energy) to plan & coordinate a night out?
It’s easy for women like us to chalk it up to being a season of life we just have to endure. Like putting your dreams and
desires on the back burner is just part of the deal at this stage in the game.
But you know you’re meant for more.
We don’t believe you’re meant to simply endure any season of your life! And we won’t sit back and watch so many beautiful, smart, talented women continue to isolate themselves from very the relationships that have the power to give them the most strength.
It’s time to bring more fun and meaningful connection back to this season of our lives.
It’s entirely possible to live our crazy-busy lives with purpose and a lot more joy. But it all hinges on connection. We have to get reconnected to ourselves and our closest girlfriends, and have fun doing it! That’s why we created a fresh new spin on a Girl’s Night Out.
It’s like a mini retreat in the middle of your week.
It’s not a typical GNO that will leave you feeling bad the next morning. And it’s not a networking event filled with surface conversations. It’s an experience where you’ll feel surrounded by friends, with huge hearts, who are passionate about figuring out what they’re meant to do in this world, and supporting each other in making it happen!
Today, you can draw a line in the sand to say, It’s time for me.
OR you can keep telling yourself, It’s a season, until you look back and realize. . .
It was your life.
“Stay Alive GNO”
September 6th, HeartStories GNO
Hi Ladies, I’m Heidi!
I’m the Co-Founder of First Defense Solutions where we improve safety for our community by implementing a thoughtful approach to any crisis situation. I started my career in Washington, DC, working as a defense contractor supporting the US Navy’s Foreign Military Sales program. From there, I moved into several different roles including corporate finance for Fortune 50 and Fortune 100 companies, as well as Big 4 consulting before founding First Defense Solutions with my business partner Ed Pietrowski (a heavily decorated police officer who has experienced over 15 active shootings).
Together, we train on a broad number of topics, all geared at helping you respond safely in a threatening situation. I specialize in training on situational awareness, tactical decision making under stress, and leadership during emergencies.
Growing up with a teacher mom, birthed a passion in me to fight for safe school environments. With all I’ve learned as a woman in this business, I’ve become extremely passionate at empowering women with the knowledge they need to make life-saving decisions in the moments that matter most. I can’t wait to share that knowledge with you during our fun & informative night together on September 6th!
Hey Girl, I’m Crystal. I’m just crazy enough to believe, that in the busy ever-changing
seasons of your life, you can be encouraged & connected with other women, in a way that will help you replace the negative stories that sometimes hold you back. So you can show up boldly, to live the story only you can live.
With more joy, more connection, more purpose, and a whole lot more fun!
I’m a wife and mother of two boys. I know what it’s like to rush through life on autopilot, losing touch with close friends and the truth about yourself in little pieces along the way. I can’t sit back & watch beautiful, smart, talented women like you, isolate yourself from very the relationships that have the power to give you the most strength.
That’s why this GNO was born!
I blog 5 days a week to encourage your heart. But I’m determined to create more fun, innovative ways for women to be all we’re meant to be and enjoy the journey together, despite our hectic lives. This HeartStories GNO is just one of those ways. I can’t wait to hug your neck!
If you want a fun break from the everyday hustle that is your life, with wine and your best girlfriends. . .
get your ticket to Girls Night Out now sister!
Come join us at GNO.
You’ll be glad you did.
