Highlights from W.E.L.L. Summit 2015

The first W.E.L.L. Summit took place in 2015 in Boston and featured an excellent turnout of speakers and breakout session leaders. Devin was able to connect with the inspiring author and yogi, Sarah Divello, who wrote Where in the Om am I? and attend a medication class by, Josh Rosebrook of Josh Rosebrook Skin and Hair Care. She also found her inner beauty with Rebecca Casciano of Sacred Beauty Salon and helped grow our business thoughtfully with the help from Brandie Gilliam of Thoughtfully Magazine

Of course, us optimists feel especially grateful to have met Gianne Doherty, who is the founder of the W.E.L.L. Summit and also the owner of Organic Bath Co. 

Devin lead a hands on workshop sharing the ins and outs of DIY cleaning, which ingredients are safe to use and an introduction to essential oils. Above are a few photos attendees shared. 

A few of the amazing Boston area bloggers we connected with include This Organic Girl, Just Us Gals, Prim & Propah, and Oh I Design Blog

What we are Looking Forward to!

There are so many things that we are excited about with the upcoming 2016 W.E.L.L. Summit. Devin will be leading two breakout sessions during the day on Saturday, where she will share her knowledge of living and cleaning green, as well as some optimistic business advice. 

Due to it's success the first year, Devin is back leading another hands on workshop titled: Green Up Your Clean Up: DIY Cleaning Solutions using Everyday Ingredients and Essential Oils. This session will include information on the safe and healthy ingredients that The Optimist Co. uses, as well as some fun DIYs that can be used around the house.

The second session is titled: From Growing Pains to Growth That Pays: An Optimistic Approach to Business Success. This breakout session will be workshop style where the attendees can take notes and brainstorm while listening to Devin's advice on achieving growth in your business. Creating a brand and business from scratch is a big task but Devin's optimism has lead our growth and she is now sharing this particle business advice with the a new women business leaders. 

Lastly, we are really looking forward to connecting with old friends while meeting new ones along the way!
