P.S. You’re probably thinking: “Wait – FREE?! That’s crazy!”
Yep. That’s what we’ve been told.
We’ve spent a year and over $100,000 creating the 2014 Conquer Summit. That’s right, in this case “free” doesn’t mean a lack of value at all. Here’s the back-story:
Originally the 9 weeks was going to come with a price tag of around $999. But after having our most amazing year in business yet, we went back to one of the quotes that we use as a guiding principle in everything we do at She Takes on the World Inc:
“If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.” – Margaret Fuller
Generosity and giving back is baked into our DNA as a company, so we started thinking, “What if we reinvested that profit back into our community and offered our next big course for free?” And here we are. Still a powerhouse program, but without the price tag.
Pretty much everyone we shared this with, including our own mentors and advisers, questioned this decision. They said: “Charge the $999, or more, for all this goodness – people will never value free!”
(We agreed to disagree, and we hope you’ll help us prove them wrong.)
You took a leap of faith when you created your biz.
Now, we’re taking a leap too – by investing in YOU, and your business growth.
In exchange? We just ask that you commit 100%. Don’t just sign up because it’s free. It requires the same commitment and dedication that you would give to something you paid for.
Show up. Participate. Do the work.
This is NOT another waste-of-time, marketing-fluff-in-disguise “free summit.” You won’t be paying for access to the videos (which are television broadcast quality by the way), workbooks, transcripts, access to a private community, etc. It’s ALL included for free.
This is the real deal.
If you sign up for anything this fall (paid programs included) – make it The Conquer Summit 2014.
This is an incredible opportunity that may never come along again.
As Steve Jobs said: “Here’s to the crazy ones!”

Looking to sponsor? Get in touch: Info@HerAgenda.com
Her Agenda will sit down to talk with Karen Civil about how she went from intern to a rising sought after brand synonymous with all things hip hop, marketing and of course social media. With a current following of more than 260K on twitter alone, she’s a self-made entrepreneur who has mastered the art of branding, marketing and social media. This conversation will cover her unique career story and provide insight into the decisions and opportunities that helped land Karen where she is today and the lessons she’s learned along the way from working with major brands like Beats by Dre and major artists like Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj and more. Karen hopes that after hearing her story women feel empowered to accomplish their goals and follow their dreams.

8:00pm – 8:15pm ……..Questions from the audience
8:15-pm-8:20………… Closing Remarks
8:20 pm- 8:45 ………. Post event networking & mingling
Rhonesha Byng, founder HerAgenda.com
Her philosophy in life is established by her acronym of N.E.S.H.A. – No One Ever Slows Her Agenda – which was also the inspiration for her first venture, HerAgenda.com. She’s won awards both as a journalist and an entrepreneur from the New York Association of Black Journalists, The Associated Press, Youth Venture, & The Kauffman Foundation. HP and Clutch Magazine named her one of the top African American Women to follow and dubbed her a ‘Tech Tastemaker.’ She also won an EMMY award for her work as a field producer with WNBC.
Describing Karen Civil in three words would go something like this: relentless, open and forward-thinking. Long before her present day accomplishments, Karen was just a young woman from the tri-state area who, like so many, had nothing but a dollar and a dream to her name.
In October of 2008, after cultivating a business relationship with The Diplomats’ A&R, DukeDaGod and her success with the establishment of their website www.dipsetmixtapes.com, Karen decided to venture out for self. KarenCivil.com was formed as a means to give readers a first-hand account of the Hip Hop industry through exclusive interviews, opinions, back stage footage of concerts/parties and of course, music. From the start, showcasing up and coming talent was a focus of Karen’s. She has featured artists such as Nicki Minaj, J. Cole, Drake, Nipsey Hussle and more! Still, KC’s sphere of influence continues to spread. She is the co-creator of Lil Wayne’s now famous blog www.weezythankxyou.com and the curator of Flex’s now popular www.inflexwetrust.com. Karen has been featured in XXL, The Source, Vogue Magazine and named by MTV as one of 2010’s Hip Hop MVPs.
She has shown a unique ability to adapt with the changing times and make it her niche – a characteristic that will only continue to increase in value over time. She has launched her personal company Always Civil Enterprise, LLC. A full fledge branding, marketing, and social media start-up, Civil is offering to transform and re-build the careers of mainstream names. With the already enlisted Lil’ Wayne, Civil has managed to add names such as Mary J. Blige, Young Jeezy, Nipsey Hussle, Mountain Dew, and Beats By Dre. With the client roster growing faster than her set expectations, Karen’s plans to continue to be social medias head puppeteer will not be diminishing anytime soon.
