We are thrilled to announce a very special event -- Supercharge Your Life: The Path to Reinvention. Every week, many of our clients ask me how and when I decided to open my business. I opened The Perfect Provenance at age 51 -- I was inspired and encouraged to do this by my family and many special people in my life. I thought I was 'too old' to start a new business but you are never too old for a new beginning. This event will be a truly special evening with three incredible women -- space is limited. RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org.
