The Called Woman to help women reinvent their careers

The Called Woman to help women reinvent their careers

MARIETTA, Ga. -- You know you've been here before, asking yourself what you should do with the rest of your life.

Or maybe you're already realizing you have some great ideas, but you just don't know where to start making any of them happen.

Maybe you are just getting back into the work force, or maybe you are stuck in an unfulfilled career just wishing you did something you loved, something that made a difference, something that made you excited to get up in the morning and get started living your dream, realizing your purpose and making your passion happen.

That can all change on March 15, 2014!

Does this sound familiar? Recent studies revealed that only 53% of Americans were content with their jobs and less than 10% were truly satisfied. But what if you could actually spend a whole day learning how to reinvent yourself? You can and it's happening this March at the Called Woman Conference in Marietta.

Improving your golf game could change a child's life

Improving your golf game could change a child's life

ATLANTA -- You can help a child recover from abuse and neglect, just by playing a round of golf.

Camp Horizon, a non-profit organization, is holding a golf tournament to benefit children who are in foster care, recovering from abuse.

The Hope on the Horizon golf tournament takes place at the Pinetree Country Club in Kennesaw Monday, Apr. 22 at 10 a.m. There is an entry fee of $125 per player, or $500 per foursome. Participants need to register by Apr. 8.

Organizers say the round of golf will make a big difference. Camp Horizon leaders say 40,000 children in Georgia are victims of abuse; every 13 minutes, a child is victimized. And children who are harmed are six times more likely to continue the cycle of abuse.
