High Tea to feature Business Coach Colleen Biggs.
The Quad Cities area is preparing to recognize and celebrate local women leaders who excel in business, support their communities and mentor others. Nominations are being accepted now through Aug. 1, for the third annual Prescott-area ATHENA Award, an international honor sponsored by Quad Cities Business News and Prescott Woman Magazine.
Business Coach Colleen Biggs is scheduled to be the keynote speaker, presenting “Ignite your Personal Power” at the ATHENA High Tea celebration, where the 2022 ATHENA Award recipient will be announced. The event is scheduled for 3 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 18, at Starting Point in the Gateway Mall. Tickets and sponsorship tables are available now at https://prescottathena.com/tickets.
Biggs has been a business coach for 22 years, is the founder and CEO of The Leap Community, an organization that offers summits, workshops, and retreats designed to empower women to lead, and has helped launch 340 businesses.
“The whole motivation behind being who we were born to be, comes from really leaning into your voice, into who you are and what makes you stand out,” she said. “We know who we are in the first four years of our life. We spend the rest of our lives trying to dig ourselves out of what others have labeled us to be.”
Biggs grew up in Chandler and like a lot of little girls, imagined that the life she thought she was supposed to live included a prince, a big Disney-esque wedding, and a happy ever after. But with her parent’s divorce, she watched her mom’s world fall apart.
For 12-year-old Colleen and her mom, life was a struggle. She began to realize that her little girl dream did not exist. As an adult, she took charge of her destiny and learned to create the life she wanted. Today, that “amazing” life is highly focused on improving and changing other women’s lives by empowering and boosting female leaders to the next level.
Biggs is an international speaker, has co-authored “The Anatomy of Accomplishment: Your Guide to Bigger, Better, Bolder Business Results,” was a contributing author to “Stop Waiting: Start Living,” and has published her own book “Step Into the Spotlight to Expand Your Influence and Attract the Right Clients.” She also has written two journals and created a year-long mastermind program for high-achieving women to focus on their businesses and increase their visibility, capacity, and wealth.
“Every single person I’ve coached is different. You need the ability to get into the map of their world to understand them first – who they are, what they need, what they are looking for – to assist and empower them for greatness.”
