On The Scene: The Power House Conference

I was “on the scene” at another empowering event, it was The Power House Conference: Women Doing It Big 2, hosted by real estate mogul Tiana Von Johnson. If you don’t know who she is you better get to know her, because you’ll be seeing her soon on STYLE Network with her own show called POWERHOUSE.

Tiana Von Johnson is a successful businesswoman, producer, author, mindset coach, & real estate guru. As CEO/President of GoldStar Properties and Madison Layne real estate, and National Expansion Developer & Real Estate Investor for Strongbrook, this inspiring entrepreneur has been making strides in the world of New York real estate and beyond. Tiana is on a mission to help people across the nation to become empowered to follow their dreams, and this is why she launched The Power House Conference – Women Doing It Big tour. This was created to celebrate powerful women in business, and to help empower, educate, and motivate today’s women.

The conference was a great opportunity for women to come together and learn from top industry leaders and lifestyle experts, and celebrate “Women Doing It Big!” There were tons of powerful women in the building, and several speakers that gave insight into how they overcame obstacles to eventually pursue their dreams.

At the conference, Tiana Von Johnson even shared her own experience on how she stepped out on faith, and resigned from an unfulfilling job to pursue her dreams. This llife-changing decision led her to stumble upon an ad for a real estate class on Wall Street, which prompted her to borrow $350 to take the class. This class would turn out to be the best investment she could have made, because within a matter of time she was experiencing financial freedom.
