The entertainment package for The Third Annual Gathering of the Goddesses weekend (Friday May 17th through Monday morning May 20th) 
is $450 (what a deal!) and includes:

Opening champagne reception and welcome gift
Two shows: 
1. Menopause, The Musical at The Luxor 
2. Cirque du Soleil Love (The Beatles) at The Mirage
Stripper 101 Class at Planet Hollywood
Pool cabana
Limo to and from theaters
NOT included: hotel, meals, drinks, tips, spa, shopping, sightseeing or hush money to make sure that whatever happens in Vegas...well, you get the idea.
Now here's the really important part: 
and if I don't receive your payment on time, you will 
NOT have tickets for events and will NOT be able to participate 
in any part of the weekend, and that would be oh, so sad! 
So send a check for $450 to me at 1516 N. State Parkway #9D, Chicago, IL 60610 - DON'T MISS OUT!

SOP (Standard Operating Procedures):
Events are NOT OPTIONAL. The success of the weekend is based on 100% participation in all scheduled events whether you've seen a show before, are leaving early, coming in late...there are NO exceptions on pricing or FULL participation, and NO refunds.
Meals will be put on one dinner bill, liquor on another. At the end of the meal, the check is split evenly no matter what you did or didn't eat. The drink bill is split evenly among only those who drink. 
Note: for those of you who have never been to Vegas, the itinerary includes five different hotel locations and our home base is close enough to walk to all other hotels.

Sage is a favorite Las Vegas restaurant amongst an international crowd of foodies due to its focuses on contemporary American cuisine spiced with global influences in a sophisticated, yet comfortable atmosphere. Critically acclaimed Chef Shawn McClain combines farm-to-table produce, artisanal meats and sustainable seafood that make each dish mouth-watering.

FREE DAY at pool, shop, spa, gamble, sightseeing

Onda6PM dinner at Onda Ristorante 

The Las Vegas Concierge Association voted it "Best Italian Restaurant." This is the rustic cuisine that fuels a night of exploration. Onda Wine Lounge, an Italian-inspired lounge featuring wine by the glass and tasting flights accompanied by artisan cheese and meats. 

8PM Cirque du Soleil Love 

John, Paul, George and Ringo. As The Beatles, they changed the world. LOVE, Cirque du Soleil's interpretation of their legacy, has changed entertainment.
The Beatles lent so much to the consciousness of our culture. We agree wholeheartedly with this-LOVE is all you need.
Beyond tribute, this is a physical manifestation of their music and lyrics. Using the master tapes from Abbey Road Studios, Sir George Martin and his son Giles created the three-time Grammy-winning soundtrack. These songs, so well-known and yet reinvented, are brought to electric, exuberant life by some of the best aerialists, acrobats and dancers in the world.

10PM Revolution Lounge

The Beatles™ REVOLUTION Lounge takes guests on an evolutionary journey, where both music and interior transform creating a psychedelic sensory environment. The first nightlife experience created by Cirque du Soleil, REVOLUTION blends cutting-edge interactive design, art and sound in a contemporary interpretation of The Beatles era, exclusively at The Mirage in Las Vegas. A nightlife revolution, the music ultra lounge is a celebration of sound where DJs spin eclectic sets from innovative rock-centric mixes with hip hop and house back beats to 70s, 80s, 90s and contemporary dance, hip hop, house and mash ups. Plus, a few nights per week, REVOLUTION converts into a live music venue where up-and-coming indie and alternative bands hit the stage.

We double the attendance each year so reserve your room now! Email me when you've made your reservations and I'll put you on the evite list and that's how you'll stay updated.
Well, stop reading and SIGN UP! 
You have til APRIL 17th to book your room. All rooms will have two beds, so grab your best bud and sign up. If you don't have a roomie but want to attend, just let me know and I'll play matchmaker or find out if anyone wants a threesome. Hey, it's Vegas! 
It's going to be incredible: fabulous women from all over the U.S. mixing, mingling and inspiring each other. Each year gets better. Don't miss it! 
I got a fantastic rate on the hotel: $838.88 TOTAL, which includes tax, resort fees, etc. for THREE nights Fri-Mon.. That's only $419.44 per person, for the WHOLE WEEKEND. Now really...!!! 


The Grand Goddess of the Goddesses

Vistage International | Mikki Williams Blog
Greetings friends, peers, associates, and even those of you I've never met!

I'd like to invite you and/or a friend to join me for a first-class OUTRAGEOUS event on Tuesday, March 19th at 7:30 a.m. (I know it's early, but believe me, it'll be worth your while!) at the luxurious Park Hyatt in Chicago.

But wait...there are a couple of small requirements so let me tell you about this opportunity...

As you may know I facilitate two peer advisory boards for Vistage International
, the world's leading executive organization. Well, I'm in the process of building a new group and am looking for CEOs who run $1M-$50M companies in any industry who are looking to grow their business and/or themselves exponentially as opposed to organically.

This is accomplished through seven tried-and-true components which I will share at the event. Companies statistically grow 3.5 times faster after Vistage membership. It's not a networking or social organization (although that is indeed a perk of membership) - it's an invitation-only, selection-based opportunity, and it's not for the faint of heart. It's a place where accountability fuels growth, where you come to get your answers questioned in a "care-frontational" style on a day you work ON your business, not IN your business.

My current CEO group is full, with 100% retention. This new group is already half-filled and I would like to have it completely filled for an April launch. The event is a mini-Vistage experience and is invitation only, from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. with breakfast and a guest speaker. It's an opportunity to chat with me, and learn more about Vistage and the culture I create within my groups, to see if either you or your referral is a mutual fit.

This is where you come in!

If you're interested please let me know. And if you don't live in Chicago perhaps you know someone who does, or know someone who knows someone who does. You get the idea. It's called networking, and I built my first group this way, even before social media! Incidentally, two of my members come from out-of-state specifically to be in my group (one from New Hampshire, one from Nebraska), so distance is only an obstacle if you let it be.

I have been an award-winning Vistage Chair for 11 years, and a top-tier speaker for Vistage for 18 years, speaking to their 16,000 member network globally. It's a stellar organization that you owe it to yourself to investigate.

Okay, I'm done! Now it's your turn...forward this message to anyone you think might be interested, and send me an email if you have any questions, would like to learn more for yourself, or even if you want to find out about a group in your area of the country.
