Ready to Soar!

Welcome to the International Women Build Confidence Conference page. My name is Dr. Allana Da Graca  and I am the Founder of Turning On the Lights Global Institute and the author of Tomorrow Can’t Wait. Did you know that a recent study showed that womenpreneurs and new business owners struggle with procrastination that stems from having the IMPOSTER SYNDROME? 

The Harvard Business Review, reported that  "Imposters’ suffer from chronic self-doubt and a sense of intellectual fraudulence that override any feelings of success or external proof of their competence."

Turning On the Lights Global Institute LLC., is proud to announce that we plan to dispel this syndrome by offering our participants practical skills to overcome this challenge! We will begin our #IWBCC pre-launch in October and kick-off this revised event in December.

We are excited that you will join us for this growing event. Get ready to step into massive action as a leader and entrepreneur. Gain excitement from our speakers, authors and experts as you say "I will upgrade my life," this year!

The saying - Different strokes for different folks and different situations – is transposable to the necessity of having flexible approaches to management and decision-making. It is crucial for leaders to be open to different perspectives, be avid to learn new strategies and attentive to what their teams may suggest; these things will allow confident and strong managers to adapt or change their decision-making process when necessary."

Manuel da Graca, TOLGI Senior Business Advisor

Cut yourself some slack. Make a list of all of your accomplishments. So many women have skill sets that allowed them to be the Operations Manager of their households. For change to occur you have to walk through the fire and find  a cheerleading squad to encourage you to move forward. You can become the person you were born to be. " Patty Aubery

Wealth is your birth right!

Take a moment to think of your business. If failure were not an option, and resources were infinite, what would your ideal business look like? If you subconsciously don't believe you will make a dollar let alone a million, you may not reach that level.

I would love to gift all #IWBCC participants a special gift for attending this special day. "

Susie Carder, Author of Power Your Profits.

My therapeutic work supports each person to feel whole, regardless of emotional issues, difficult or traumatic life experiences, and physical injuries or illness. Many clients have worked with me to get free from emotional and physical pain and restrictions that have been in the way of their feeling at home in their bodies and themselves for many years. Some clients work with me to get through the anxiety, loss and depression that they are experiencing right now. Together we can find the best way to get the support, empowerment and tools you need now. Find and release the root cause of a problem and learn tools for effective self-care within a nurturing, collaborative environment."
