Steve Harvey’s SOAR Retreat – Lifting Women Higher

I’m a blogger Ambassador for Steve Harvey’s SOAR Retreat. and have received free registration as well as 2 complimentary tickets for a giveaway. All opinions are honest and my own. Affiliate links present

When I first started blogging 4 years ago, my aim was to share hair journey to help my friends with natural hair styles and regimen tips. I honestly had no idea that the VeePeeJay platform would be what it is today, and I certainly didn’t expect to have the opportunities and experiences that I have been blessed with. Whether I’m sharing a hair tutorial or hosting an event, I’m really passionate about lifting women higher and encouraging them to step out of their comfort zone by sharing my own stories and experiences.

give-extra-get-extraI will probably say that my eyes were really opened to the possibilities (and responsibilities) that comes with being an online influencer, a little over year after I started blogging, when I met my friend Julian .  She invited me to assist her with organizing and co-hosting monthly natural hair/self development meetups in the DFW Area.

I quickly realized that our meetup events helped attendees connect, learn and grow with other likeminded women. At the end of the day, it was about so much more than hair. I was able to be part of a community of women who developed a sisterhood bond and helped to uplift, support and elevate each other. As a result, I too was inspired to step out of my comfort zone, aim higher and dream bigger than ever before.

  • Refresh, renew, restore, rejuvenate and reassess where they are and where they want to go with their career, wealth and relationship goals.

  • *Develop a fresh mindset around how to focus on their top priorities and spend their time on what really matters.

  • *Connect with other professional women who, like you, want to achieve holistic success (in their life and their work).

  • *Honor their strengths and find out how to maximize them without apology or regret.


The retreat boasts an all-star speaker line up headed by Steve Harvey, and includes Laila Ali, Ali Brown, Doreen Rainey, Patrice Washington, Angela Jia Kim and Paul C Brunson.

    I absolutely love this post Vashti! I’m sad I won’t be there but I’m looking forward to following you and the other ladies on SM for the updates 🙂

    • Thanks Christine. I’m super excited about to be part of this amazing experience.

  • I certainly have women in my life that help me soar. I return the love by doing the same with others. I want the women in my circle to be as amazing as they can. I will be there too, I can’t wait to soak up everything the speakers share with us.

    • Yes. Can’t wait to see you Mimi.

    it’s great that you have a sisterhood a women who inspire and motivate you. This sounds like an awesome event, I am all for events that motivate inspire and uplift women. I will be checking out the information about this conference and I look forward to reading your post about it.

  • this sounds like an amazing event, I wish I was able to go! I can’t wait to hear about it

    • I’ll definitely be sharing a recap. Thanks LaShawn.

  • This sounds like it will be a great event. I can’t wait to read your post afterwards. Stepping out of my comfort zone has always been something I struggled with as well

    • I can definitely identify with that YaYa. Just take small steps towards whatever it is you want to do.

  • I’ve heard so many great things about this conference, crossing my fingers that I win. I have 3 sister friends and we’ve been best friends for 20+ years. We’ve been through a lot as friends however our friendship has remained constant. I love those girls like they’re are my sisters and in fact we act as if we are. 🙂 I pay it forward by sharing and supporting my sisters. If I know something that can make your life better, best believe I’m sharing it with you. I’m also the queen of connecting people together, so if I can’t help you with something, I will connect you with someone who can.

  • Oh and to answer the question. One of my very first supervisors coached and molded me to be the business professional that I am. She not only cared about me professionally, but also personally, and genuinely so. I pay it forward by pouring myself into those that I meet in the same way she poured herself into me. I love her dearly. She was much more than a supervisor. She was a mentor and a dear friend.

    • That is so awesome Jaye. I love to hear that.

  • CONGRATS!!!! Well deserved, friend.

  • Vashtiiiii! Absolutely, yes, I have women in my life who constantly and continuously lift me higher. You’re one of those women who inspire me to be better, go bigger and be my full and total self when society prefers me not to be. (And I love you for it.) How I pay that forward is by encouraging women around me, whether they’re friends or strangers, in the same way! When I’m poured into, it outpours to others. I believe in honest complimenting, genuine care and listening, being transparent and identifying with women where they are. Thankfully, I can do this in person, online and/or through my debut book The Girl Talk Chronicles. If this retreat embodies a fraction of this, I WANT IN! Thanks for the chance to enter.

    xoxo, Ariel
