AND IT ALL STARTS WITH
YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED
TO REDEFINE BUSINESS AS USUAL
Now is the time to change the status quo, disrupt archaic markets and business models and re-write the rules in our industries… on our terms. It’s time for those of us who are natural born leaders to elevate beyond “experts” and step up as thought leaders in our industries and we aren’t going to succeed using the marketing strategies the bro marketers profess as the holy grail of conversions.
THIS NOVEMBER 13-15, 2022, I’M INVITING 75 INFLUENTIAL WOMEN BUSINESS LEADERS TO JOIN ME IN LAGUNA NIGEL, CA FOR TWO IMPACTFUL DAYS OF RAW, INDUSTRY-DISRUPTING CONVERSATION, STRATEGY, NETWORKING, AND WORKSHOPPING
This is the first and only THOUGHT LEADERSHIP event of its kind for women of influence who want to move beyond personal genius and expertise to redefine their industry and create results that are truly…
This Is The “Hold My Latte, I’ve Got This Moment” You’ve Been Waiting For
EPIC is for accomplished women entrepreneurs who want to go beyond personal success and community influence to become seen, heard, and recognized as maverick thought leaders in their industries.
It’s not about being insta-famous, taking pretty selfies, or vanity follower numbers. And there are no “boss babes” in this room (there are lots of business Barbie conventions elsewhere). This is about truly creating ripples of sustainable change in your business and throughout your industries… and ultimately, the world. It’s about leading the charge for what we as women define as success—not only for our companies but for ourselves, our families, and our communities.
Utilizing a think tank format, we will focus on the following core topics essential for women entrepreneurs to
elevate beyond expert and into thought leader status:
The Strategy to Elevate Beyond Expert and Set the Stage For Thought Leadership
Most people confuse the words “Expert” with “Thought Leader” with “Influencer.” There is a distinction though. Experts know a lot and have the skill and track record to back it up. Thought leaders can be influencers, but not every influencer is a thought leader.
To be a true thought leader requires not only absolute clarity about what we are taking a stand for, for our markets, ourselves, our clients—but also requires an intentional brand platform that moves beyond tactical social media and other online marketing efforts, and is designed to create a movement.
We’re going to look at the difference between being an influencer and being a true thought leader. And we are going to collectively work on:
- Creating a personalized market disruption strategy to carve the path from expert to thought leader based on your individual industry.
- UpLeveling your positioning so that you have a unique point of view and voice and are clearly differentiated from the gaggle of experts.
- Developing concepts for intellectual property that supports your path to the top and changes the status quo that is no longer effective.
- Curating your elevated brand platform and thought leader marketing strategies that set a new tone while you invite people to join you in
Harnessing the Power of the Collective
One of the biggest challenges holding women leaders back is operating in isolation and within antiquated, siloed social and business structures. Many of us have never experienced what it’s like to work as a collective with other brilliant and successful women leaders - either because we can’t find them or the ones we do find at traditional events are still operating in a paradigm of competition.
EPIC is going to be the breath of fresh air you’ve been craving. This is an event where women build each other up, share their genius and open their networks to support us all in winning.
This will all go beyond just the two days at EPIC. We will also explore how you can harness the power of the collective in a way that no previous group of business leaders has ever thought to do. Learn to leverage other people’s genius and their resources to create win-win relationships and situations, and to work together to create opportunity and sustainable change—because we are not meant to do this alone.
The Personal Path of an EPIC Thought leader
You are not “normal”… you are extraordinary and that is a good thing. Women of our caliber come with our own unique set of challenges – whether it be in our romantic relationships, balancing family life with our innate drive to lead and create, jealousy or misunderstandings amongst family or friends or judgement from the outside world. And all too often, we suffer that burden alone and are left with feelings of guilt, shame and “not being understood”.
Not in this room. In this room… WE. GET. IT. We know that it’s just not realistic to worry about cooking, cleaning and errand running when you are in the midst of an Epic Movement.
At Epic, we are going to have the blunt, vulnerable and raw conversations that we are currently having inside our heads and get the support, encouragement and resources to keep yourself in leading the way without burning out.

What Women Leaders Say About Kelly O’Neil
"I have known Kelly for several years, and as her strategic partner, I have gotten probably a rare inside glimpse into how she works with her clients, her community, and at her events. Kelly O'Neil is a genius. When it comes to business strategy, when it comes to expert positioning, and when it comes to results, there is no one that compares to Kelly O'Neil. I have been in the room with her, working with her clients, working with some of our mutual clients, and the ideas that she has, the strategies that she comes up with, and then most importantly, watching people implement those strategies to get incredible results in their business, quite honestly, it's awe-inspiring. So if you have a chance to be in the room with Kelly, if you have the chance to work with her on any level, whether that's privately at one of her events in one of her communities, I say run, don't walk. Working with Kelly O'Neil is not only business-changing, it's life-changing."
— BRIDGET BRADY, Owner and CEO of ampupmybiz.com and the creator of the Social Media Success Academy
"People need other people to turn to and to collaborate with, and we need a network of really incredible people who are vetted, top notch, high quality people that you can count on. The Collective, the caliber of women who are in there, your team, your organization, everything that Kelly and I have done together as far as her serving my clients and me serving her clients. The work has just been brilliant! EPIC is one more extension of Kelly’s brilliance. I'm happy to be a part of it and look forward to seeing you there!"
— BRIELLE COTTERMAN
"This is a testinonial that has been approved by Kelly. I got my first Strategic Partnership and client, that just referred me to another client."
— KELLI ELLIS, VP of International Relations at Ronati, Celebrity Interior Designer, HGTV Television Host, Keynote Speaker and Best-Selling Author
"I met Kelly O’Neil in 2018 at a networking event. When we met, it was like I had known her my entire life! What stood out the most about Kelly, was her work ethic. Even while on vacation, or social events, Kelly lives my her mantra, Be F*!^%$' EPIC! She stands behind her brand while encouraging other entrepreneurs in her Collective Group to do just the same. Over the years, my relationship with Kelly has grown into a partnership. I am constantly calling her to ask for business advice and feedback as she has provided game changing feedback for me and my organization. I love the fact that she doesn't hold back and because of that, I have revamped my organization in a way that has doubled my corporate clients in less than a year! When I got the call to become apart of this amazing group, I did not hesitate! Thank you Kelly O'Neil for Being F*!^%$' EPIC!"
— STACY POWELL, SJP Independent Consultants
"Kelly has been helping me with several of my businesses for over a decade. It all started when I attended one of her events back in 2005…and I’ve been hooked ever since. She has the ability to get you to think about your business differently so you can grow in ways that had never even crossed your mind. I always walk away from her events with something new and innovative that increases my bottom line. The bonus is she has a great sense of humor and attracts amazing people so her events are also a ton of fun."
— BETH WACHNER, Co-Founder of Just Home Property
"In this world of entrepreneurialism, I found that you can roll solo if you want to. And you can also have a crew, but you have to create it. Having the right people with the right competencies help you to get the right things in place. If you haven't had an opportunity to be in Kelly's community or be a part of the crew that is around Kelly, get to know her and engage. When you look at her background, her capabilities, her competencies, she is pretty awesome. I'm excited to be a part of the collective, and at whatever part of your journey you decide to be there, I look forward to seeing you.”
— VERNICE ARMOUR, Founder, Advisor, Inspirational Leadership Keynote Speaker
This is not an entry-level event. EPIC is an advanced event designed for experienced and accomplished women business leaders and entrepreneurs who are ready to step up into an epic level of thought leadership in their industries. If you’ve watched the video and read the invitation, you may just instinctively feel called to be in the room among other women who are:
Averaging revenues of over $1M a year with some generating substantially more (although you don’t have to have quite hit that mark yet to attend)
From a variety of different industries, diverse backgrounds and wide variety of experiences
Ready to innovate and disrupt their markets to move beyond business as usual
Committed to exploring a more collaborative (rather than competitive) workstyle
Elevating their platform beyond generating revenue (although profit will grow) to creating a thought leader platform and industry movement
There is something magical—and extremely powerful—about getting a group of like-minded women in the room together. The right combination of minds (and we’re more concerned with quality than quantity here) creates a force multiplier on what is possible for each and every person in that room.
If this resonates with you… I’ll see you soon.
