Lisle, Illinois ~ Have you ever felt like you had to set aside a personal interest or hobby so that you could simply make a living and manage the demands of everyday life?

Now is the time to discover how you can pursue your life’s true passion at the Women’s Institute for Global Leadership workshop, “Penning Your Purpose,” from 10:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 12 at Benedictine University’s Moser Center, 1832 Centre Point Circle, Suite 102, in Naperville.
