Why Not Girl!
Why Not Girl! offers women empowerment, inspiration and valuable experiences that encourage them to try something new, have fun and feel accomplished. Founder Lauren Herpich realized that it was not material things or the prominent title at work, but the multitude of life experiences she had been so fortunate to have that made her life rich. But when she searched for a place to share these passions, she found that there was nothing out there that gave women empowerment to experience a wide variety of adventures with other women across the multiple stages of life. Lauren launched Why Not Girl!, a website that offers women opportunities to try something new and for women to interact and share their stories. We have a unique experience for you at this year’s Title 9K: Lauren will be interviewing YOU at the Why Not Girl! Expo booth. Go see her and tell her your story. You will be video-taped. It’s a high probability that your story can empower and enrich other women and girls! And pick up your Why Not Girl! Sticker while you’re there!
