Participants will meet with guest Holly Pilcavage, director of business development at Coal Creative, Wilkes-Barre. Pilcavage will talk about the concepts of mindset/perception and how they lead to success covering the following ideas: It takes courage to let go of the familiar and embrace the new; Choose your attitude every morning; What would you do if you knew you could not fail; Life doesn't happen to you - it happens for you. Holly is the Founder of Project Wednesday, an organization that fosters positive human development while addressing human resilience, overall well-being and the various factors that contribute to it. Her truest passion is people. With a background in business development, higher education, and life coaching, Holly focuses her energy on the impact we are all making on one another and the inevitable ripple effect it causes throughout the world.

She is currently on a mission to see all 50 states before the exciting age of 30 which means Holly travels as much as possible while taking the time to learn more about people and how we all fit together as individual puzzle pieces. 


Designed for women with lower incomes, those in transition or those trying to make a better life for themselves and their families, the session will offer women support and guidance in determining if self-employment is an option for them. Admission is free.
