The Called Woman to help women reinvent their careers

The Called Woman to help women reinvent their careers

MARIETTA, Ga. -- You know you've been here before, asking yourself what you should do with the rest of your life.

Or maybe you're already realizing you have some great ideas, but you just don't know where to start making any of them happen.

Maybe you are just getting back into the work force, or maybe you are stuck in an unfulfilled career just wishing you did something you loved, something that made a difference, something that made you excited to get up in the morning and get started living your dream, realizing your purpose and making your passion happen.

That can all change on March 15, 2014!

Does this sound familiar? Recent studies revealed that only 53% of Americans were content with their jobs and less than 10% were truly satisfied. But what if you could actually spend a whole day learning how to reinvent yourself? You can and it's happening this March at the Called Woman Conference in Marietta.

Path2College sweepstakes end Aug. 15

ATLANTA -- Georgia's Path2College 529 Plan is making it easier for families to pay for college by holding two scholarship giveaways.

The deadline to enter both contests is Thursday, Aug. 15.

Mitch Seabaugh, director of the Path2College 529 Plan, said the two sweepstakes are designed to encourage families to start saving for college while their children are still very young.

"If 10,000 more Georgia families start saving for college, that's 10,000 more children who will have a head start toward achieving their dream when they graduate from high school," he said in a statement.

Seabaugh added that the sweepstakes also benefit young students because they provide money for schools and libraries.

The first contest -- the 10,000 Reasons to Save Sweepstakes -- will gives $10,529 to two lucky winners: a current Path2College account holder and a non-account holder. The two winners' schools will each receive $10,529.
