The 2018 Motivated Moms Retreat is sponsored by Prudential, Coca-Cola, One Vodka, le creatif linen and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas. Latoyia Dennis, mommy advocate and founder of The Motivated Mom and A Chance to Learn, walked away from a lucrative corporate career to create The Motivated Mom, a network to encourage women around the globe to go passionately after their dreams and create the lives they’ve dreamed of.

Her goal is to provide opportunities for women and help them discover who they were created to be. “As moms we think about everyone else, sometimes at the expense of self,” said Dennis. “This event gives moms an opportunity to ‘retreat’ – to pull back and take care of themselves.  We can’t retreat when engaging with our children, we have to be present.  We have to take out real time for self.”  While this is the first Motivated Moms Retreat, it is not the first event for the brand.

Latoyia Dennis started The Motivated Moms in 2016 with nationwide tour, that drew sold-out crowds of women and moms looking to grow, learn and reach their dreams. “The Motivated Moms Retreat is for every woman who is looking to live an extraordinary life while balancing career, motherhood and all the other demands of life with class and grace,” said Dennis. “I’ve gathered some of the best influencers in the industry. Attendees should expect to be encouraged, challenged and celebrated.”
