My mission is to empower as many women as possible. I want them to know they are Beautiful, Confident, Strong and Worth Protecting! They are Priceless! Women have the power and ability, within, to protect themselves. It is my intention and goal for women to discover their inner strength and live life without fear. I realize, together, going forward, we are building new legacies.
“Confidence is the unconquerable enemy of fear!” ~Regina Rowley
IDEA to REALITY
The idea for I Am Priceless began in 2009 while having coffee with a friend. Two questions were posed, “Who is Regina? If you could do anything, what would you be doing?” “Oh that every woman knew how to defend herself and would! That she knew in her heart and believed between her ears, she IS valuable, beautiful and worth protecting.” was my passionate response. I enjoy helping others embrace their worth and living a life of positive impact. I’m living my life with greater purpose as I fulfill this passion.
Together, we can change violent statistics against women!
