Hey CEO’s!

I’m Natasha, Guest Editor for The Female CEO and Founder of That Girl, a transformative clothing brand that celebrates and supports women by empowering them through fashion, media, education and events. Recently, my team and I recently introduced 4-part event series titled “Stand In Your Purpose”. I am so excited to bring you the lowdown on the event and give you the opportunity to learn more, no matter your location in the world.

The Stand in Your Purpose series of events are designed to help women define and stand in their own purpose through networking and interactive sessions. Our first session was held on February 24th, 2018 at 4801 Wellness Center, Chrysler Dr. from 5:30-8:30 p.m, the speakers featured had over 150 years of collective experience beginning with Barbara Pugh’s, Every Beat of My Heart delivered her message on self-empowerment. Barbara opened up with a statement called Hey Girl, encouraging women to practice positive affirmations daily. Theresa O’Bryant followed, owner of Genesis Therapeutic Message, who presented her powerful 6 Keys to Wellness. Followed by Mrs. O'Bryant was Dr. Jen Cardwell, President of the University of Phoenix, who gave a personal message describing life as a game of hopscotch in her powerful analogy. To close the event, Dr. Sabrina Jackson practiced an interactive role-playing session with the participants, encouraging women to envision their success.

Barbra Pugh opened the session up with this original piece. I loved it so much so that I have decided to make it our That Girl Statement of Truth.

HEY GIRL, I am taking charge of your own life.

HEY GIRL, do you know who I am?

HEY GIRL, I am fearfully and Wonderfully Made

HEY GIRL, I am designed to reach my Highest Potential and never settling for less than!

HEY GIRL, I am created to Achieve which takes Tenacity, Determination, and Perseverance!

HEY GIRL, I am a product of the Infinite Creator.

HEY GIRL, I am fashioned by God to live with Confidence, Passion, knowing that God wants to do Great Things in My Life.

We had amazing feedback from both the speakers and attendees of our first event event and we cannot wait to repeat the success and energy in part two on June 8, 2019, on Saturday at 11:00 am.

Barbara said:

‘First of all I would like to thank you for the opportunity to be a part of “StandingIn Your Purpose,” event. What an awesome opportunity to share and collaborate with some incredible women. It was simply amazing! Natasha you did an awesome job facilitating the event. You are natural talent and you set the atmosphere which allowed everyone to share openly and honestly. I could see the hand of God in every phase of the event bringing women in touch with whatever they are dealing with and sharing without reservation. You set the stage for discovery and healing in removing the blockages, obstacles, and barriers, which often prevents the realisation of true Potential to Stand in our Purpose! I was truly blessed by every aspect of “Standing In Your Purpose.” I have discovered that my life is worth nothing unless I use it for doing the work God has assigned me to do ~ making eternal investments in the lives of others; things that money cannot buy ~ confidence, influence, divine favour, and a renewed mind. What an awesome privilege to be a part of assisting others in finding the strength to exert influence over the outcomes of their lives. This is only the beginning for That Girl’

I found it hilarious that I planned this event for women who are 40 and over. I received so many complaints I had to open it up to women aged 21 and over! The ladies in the room hugged, laughed, cried and shared many insecurities, truths and joys together. Our mentors, rather our speakers, we’re all down to earth, having over 150 years collectively of success, empowerment, spirituality, and the ability to ignite change in people.

We cannot wait until the next session of Stand in Your Purpose-Cultivation Session! Head over to to check out the video of the event in our Being That Girl Blog.

How did I pay the role is this? I encouraged the women to be bold and pursue their purpose. I let them know that women such as myself are counting on their voices to be heard. I throughly appreciate the genuine concern and wisdom that was shared in the room.

To finding and using your voice,
