On May 20, 2017, Sarah Centrella held her first ever live event, at Union Pine in Portland Oregon. It was truly a magical night, full of inspiration from five women, including Sarah and two key speakers. The attendees enjoyed an open bar with local wine and craft cocktails, a gourmet four-course sit down dinner, desert and giveaways. Each of the ladies got their photos taken on the pink carpet and was gifted a swag bag.
The nights theme was "Live Your Dream" and featured several local speakers, sharing their personal stories of how they've achieved success and are living their dreams. Sarah shared her 8-step #HBRMethod and personal story, including her tips on making a vision board that works!
