Welcome to the Soul Sisters Blog!

We’re three sisters on a mission to empower and inspire women everywhere to pursue their passions and achieve their dreams. Our story is probably not unlike your own; a tug at the heartstring, a feeling of wanting more from life, a desire to fulfill a divine purpose. It was these relentless yearnings that inspired the concept of Soulspring Groups.

When our souls open up (and they tend to quite often) we’ve got to share! We invite you to read our thoughts (and occasional rants) on women, empowerment, passion, destiny and life! Feel free to share your comments; we love to hear your thoughts (and rants) too! And, become an official follower! It's always fun to see the company we're keeping!

YOU: The Designer of Your Life

Each year in April, Soulspring Groups has the privilege of sponsoring a fabulous women’s event, which honors the contributions of Administrative Professionals in the southeastern Minnesota and western Wisconsin areas. Nearly 200 women gather at the Red Wing Women's Colloquium to celebrate and acknowledge the efforts of these office heroes. Let’s face it; many a business would close their doors were it not for the dedication of their administrative staff!

One contribution Soulspring makes to the event is overseeing the “lively” fashion show. It’s been a tradition for nearly as long as the event has been taking place--next year will be number twenty-five! Being Soulspring, we view this as not just another luncheon and award ceremony. No, to us this event is an opportunity to inspire and empower women from all occupations and backgrounds!

But how do you incorporate an inspiring message of empowerment into talk of fashion trends and the newest spring colors? It’s a challenge we’re happy to tackle head-on, and to be honest, we need only take our inspiration from you.

When we meet you at events and chat with you online, references to your hectic and busy schedules always creep into the conversation. And we can relate! Life gets crazy-busy sometimes, especially for women…balancing work and family, and then you toss your own dreams and goals on the pile and you’ve got a mountain of obligations and deadlines to climb every day! It’s easy to forget who’s running this show.

Well, when all is said and done, there’s one place where you still call the shots! You are the Queen of your Closet, and even though you wear a lot of hats, you’re still first and foremost the designer of your life, which we thought was the perfect message and theme for this year’s show!

And a fun show it was; an opportunity for local merchants to show off their merchandise and amateur models to shine in the spotlight. We had fun, the models had fun, and the audience had fun. Yet we hope that we inspired more…

There’s no getting away from the fact that you are the designer of your life. You’re the one who coordinates the pieces and adds the bling. Whatever the look or feel you want for your life, you’re the only one who can make it happen.

When you get up tomorrow morning and apply your makeup, when you dry and style your hair, when you open those closet doors to pick your outfit for the day, remember these aren’t just your clothes, makeup, and hair! No, these are your tools…just like your dreams, passions, goals, and ambitions are your tools. These are the tools you use to design your life.
