Prescott, AZ (PressExposure) June 12, 2009 -- Central Yavapai Sunrise Soroptimist (Arizona) presented the Making a Difference For Women Award 2009 to Andrea Goeglein, Ph.D. The Making a Difference for Women Award honors women who, through their professional or personal efforts, are making extraordinary differences in the lives of women or girls. Andrea Goeglein, known as Dr. Success, is a multi- media expert in Positive Psychology and a regular contributor to KATZ TVâs AM Arizona, hosted by Tonya Mock and Lew Rees.
Dr. Goeglein is well known in the Prescott area as an entrepreneur and hotel owner. Together with her husband, gaming expert Richard Goeglein, she owned and operated the former Quality Inn and Suites for over three years and has been a respected CEO mentor to many business founders over her 25 year career.
For the past three years (2006-2008), Andrea has also selflessly contributed hundreds of hours to share her dream with Prescott area women, ranging in age from the teens to the nineties. Called the Prescott Professional Womenâs Conference, the theme of the event is, âPower, Purpose, and Prosperity.â At this conference, nationally renowned speakers and authors provide inspiration and motivation in the areas of personal, professional, and spiritual growth. (Visit [http://www.PPWC2008.com] for details.)
Her continuing commitment to making a difference for women will be evident on July 24, 2009 when she delivers her keynote presentation âIgniting Your Spirit of Resilienceâ for the JDRF Ladies Luncheon at Wente Vineyards in Livermore, CA. Tickets for the event can be purchased at [http://www.curetype1.org/driveforthecure/luncheon.html]
Says Dr. Goeglein: âWomen provide tremendous support to each other. Bringing together large numbers of like-minded women for one day of spectacular speakers in a high-energy, supportive environment increases their awareness of what is possible and allows them to discover their potential. The conference provides information and motivation, creates opportunities to find professional and personal support, while allowing each woman to create opportunities for others. Attendees discover how to grow as individuals, in careers, and the way in which they contribute to the world. All of this directly and indirectly contributes to a womenâs ability to create personal, spiritual, and professional âwealth.â And when women create wealth, they share it. For me, there is no greater contribution I can make.â
Dr. Goeglein is currently in talks to create a womenâs conference for a Las Vegas Community College, which will take place in March 2010 during that collegeâs annual Celebration of Women month.
