This event is open to all prospective and current WEW members.

There’s a stark difference between “striving” and “thriving.” And yet, we’ve been using the term strive as a moniker of success for decades. Strive actually means battle and conflict.

Does your life feel like a battle and a conflict? A battle to meet the expectations of everyone but our own deep inner knowing? Are you ready to write your own thrive story to grow, prosper and flourish?

It’s time to rise above societal norms and expectations to write our own stories based on our unique gifts and talents. It’s time to rise and thrive.

Rebecca Fleetwood Hession has nearly three decades of experience in leadership, team building, and consultative selling. She has a track record of success selling over $35M, a popular TEDx talk, inclusion in a best-selling business book, and 15 years in the esteemed President’s Club at FranklinCovey. She was chosen to perform an original piece for the Listen to Your Mother show.

She is the founder of, a company dedicated to Ban Burnout, Build Community and Boost Business. She leads a one of a kind 7-month experience for executive women titled Rise & Thrive.
