WHO IS PROJECT YOU
As the Founder of Project YOU, Meagan Ayres has created a way in which to express her passion for helping women discover their inner power and who they really are. Meagan leads the team behind Project YOU with the intention of ensuring they are achieving their individual goals while fulfilling the mission of elevating women and the world.
Meagan has taken a personal and professional journey to find her truth, her power, and her passion. She saw a need to initiate and encourage conversations among women that educate and empower. And so she created Project YOU. Her expertise in event planning and vendor relationships as a Retail Buyer has made executing the high-end Project YOU events look almost seamless. What she loves most is bringing together the community of Project YOU by involving women through different aspects of the events such as being a speaker, vendor or affiliated sponsor. Beyond that, Project YOU is a source of inspiration to take action everyday. It is a lifestyle.
Meagan values personal integrity, love and seeing women light up! It is important to realize your own beauty and to share that beauty with the world. It's really all about being your own Superhero!

"If nature has made you for a giver, your hands are born open, and so is your heart; and though there may be times when your hands are empty, your heart is always full, and you can give things out of that—warm things, kind things, sweet things—help and comfort and laughter—and sometimes gay, kind laughter is the best help of all."
-Frances Hodgson Burnett

"We can either be passively carried along by forces and habits that remain stubbornly unexamined and which imprison us in distorting dreams and potential nightmares, or we can engage in our lives by waking up to them and participating fully in their unfolding, where we "like" what is happening in any moment or not. Only when we wake up do our lives become real and have even a chance of being liberated from our individual and collective delusions, diseases and suffering."
