Imagine..Then Do It!

.

In Julie’s signature talk, her message challenges women to open their minds to the endless possibilities that can result in a fulfilling next act. She begins by granting them permission to dream again, as Julie finds that too many women have buried their dreams in some dark closet. Sometimes that means rediscovering old dreams that have gone dormant over the years, and sometimes it means imagining new dreams. But her message doesn’t end with the Imagining, she also provides practical advice on how to Do It …how to actually begin the journey towards fulfilling those dreams. As Julie says “Imagining without the doing is just daydreaming.” Using her own personal story, interspersed with the stories of the many remarkable women she interviewed for her groundbreaking book Act Three: Create the Life You Want, she challenges women to take a personal inventory and walk away with a renewed sense of purpose. This talk is ideal for women’s groups ages 40-65.

Julie Shifman has a knack for meeting women where they are now, and inspiring them to look ahead to their next endeavor. Speaking to a group of women from Hadassah, the National Council of Jewish Women, and a local synagogue sisterhood, Julie faced a diverse audience. There were professional women considering a career change; stay-at-home moms wondering if this was an opportune time for them to re-enter the workplace; full-time community volunteers; and others as yet unsure of their future plans. Yet, Julie had something useful to offer everyone present. Her talk combined practical exercises to pinpoint the needs and skills of her listeners, and inspirational stories to help them overcome obstacles to their success. We loved her energy, her passion, and her dynamic speaking style, and would recommend her to any women’s group seeking a motivational speaker.

As we all search to bring more meaning into our lives, eye-opening presentations are valued in helping us reach our goals. Julie Shifman brought a wealth of useful tools to help our group identify and navigate our future endeavors. Her presentation Imagine…then do it assisted us in imaging and reaching our potential goals and the next day her presentation Catching Happiness emphasized the obtainable path to happiness. I highly recommend her keynotes to non-profits groups like ours and assume these skills would benefit the corporate world as well.
