Description

Do your "typical" networking events leave you cold and uninspired? Are you interested in experiencing personal and professional growth in a unique way?

If so, we would love for you to join us at the Edina Country Club for a morning of cultivating connections with self and others who are also interested in uncovering joy, purpose, and meaning in their lives through building on a foundation of self-awareness. Love yourself. Know yourself. Grow yourself.™ We believe that as you contribute to your individual growth, you also contribute to the collective growth of those around you.

You will enjoy breakfast, coffee & tea, the musical stylings from our emcee Jearlyn Steele & hear from author and speaker Joan Steffend on the importance of living an authentic life.

ABOUT JOAN & JEARLYN:

JOAN STEFFEND

JOAN STEFFEND has spent almost thirty years in the media, first as a national Emmy-winning news writer, reporter and anchor at the NBC affiliate in Minneapolis-St Paul. While there, she also won the coveted Grand Award from the New York International Film Festival and many more national and regional awards.

She doesn’t believe the awards were for her reporting, but instead for her ability to tell a person’s story from their heart, through hers. The place where people open up their stories to Joan has always felt like a sacred gift to her.

She spent ten years as a top-rated host on HGTV’s “Decorating Cents” – appearing on Oprah, Live with Regis and Kelly, the Today show and Entertainment Tonight. Joan also hosted many of HGTV’s highest profile specials, including six tours and live giveaways of HGTV Dream Homes.

In addition, she hosted HGTV’s “Christmas at the White House” specials for several years, which became some of the network’s top-rated hour-long prime time specials. She also co-hosted th “Rose Bowl Parade” in Pasadena, California.

Today, she is a published author. Her first book, “… and she sparkled” was published in 2010 and “peace in peace out” in 2012. She’s also sought after as an inspirational speaker, committed to encouraging people to remember their own brilliance and consciously use it to shift the world.

It’s been a fun few decades, but she is most passionate about this moment.


JEARLYN STEELE

A native of Indiana, Jearlyn relocated to Minnesota and after much encouragement, she ventured out singing in churches, community centers and nightclubs. This eventually led her to theater where she has performed at such venues as Penumbra Theater of St. Paul, the Old Log Theater in Excelsior, The Historical State Theater in downtown Minneapolis, the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in St. Paul, and the world renowned Guthrie Theater. Over a decade ago, Jearlyn, along with her siblings, The Steeles, began a successful run of the pop/gospel musical “Gospel At Colonus” which made its way to Carnegie Hall.

After Colonus, Jearlyn could be found in the studio recording national and local commercials for companies such as Kohler, H&R Block, Slumberland, Aveda, Target and many more. Her voice can be heard on various CD’s for national artists like George Clinton, Mavis Staples and Prince, with whom she has toured and recorded a duet, entitled “Race”. She has been a frequent guest on the prestigious A Prairie Home Companion radio show and can be seen in the final Robert Altman film, A Prairie Home Companion starring Meryl Streep as well as the Ray Romano movie, 95 Miles To Go. Among her honors are; Newsmaker of the Year 1998 by the MN Women’s Press, The William (Billy) Griffin Award by the Hallie Q. Brown Center, Beautiful Strong Woman 2002, Honorary Member of the Gustavus Library Association and the CBS Radio General Manager’s Achievement Award 2006.

Currently, as host of the CBS affiliate WCCO Radio 830 AM, Jearlyn’s talk show, Steele Talkin’, can be heard every Sunday night from 7pm to 11pm in approximately thirty states nationwide and Canada. And be sure to catch Jearlyn on Twin Cities Public Television where she has joined forces with the award winning Almanac as entertainment reporter.

Corporations such as Wells Fargo Bank, Carlson Wagonlit, Ameriprise, and LifeTouch have incorporated her sound into their winning message. Recently, she has moved into another genre, public speaking, where she refers to herself as the singing speaker! G&K Companies, Executive Women’s International St. Paul Chapter, Health Partners Professional & Support Staff Conference, Northwest Agra Dealers, Luther Seminary and the University of Indianapolis are just a few organizations who have heard her stories called Songs In The Key of Life. From the former Soviet Union to parts of Asia, Jearlyn has shared her voice with elated audiences around the world.

A mother of two, Jearlyn has branched out to become more involved in creating ways to affect women and children’s lives in a positive way through music and public speaking. She has served on boards for the Ordway Circle of Stars and Chrysalis, a center for women. She is a member of the American Federation of Television and Radio Artist (AFTRA) and Screen Actors Guild (SAG)
