Lite Lunch with Media Mogul, Zibby Owens

October 21, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Come join us for lunch on Friday, October 21st at 12pm as we celebrate Zibby Owens, author, podcaster, publisher, CEO, and mother of four!

At this Lite Lunch, Owens will share with us her experience of her entrepreneur path – her perseverance, talent, and trust that consumers of her creative end product will engage in the conversation, respectfully. She will reveal with us how that is not always the case and along the road to her success she has sacrificed a lot to achieve her goals.

Owens is “driven by a sense of mission and purpose that fuels every minute of every day.” She feels compelled to leave the world in a better place than she found it. As a working mother, wife, and friend who is on (and paving) the path of media success, she has admitted that sometimes this road feels very lonely – as she’s in the season of her career life where she can’t press pause. “It’s a lot. It requires a lot from my loved ones. But I hope, in the end, it matters. For me, it is my life’s work. And I love it.”

Tickets are $25 for CLS members and $35 for guests. Free for students by calling the number listed below and showing a valid ID at check in (please note: boxed lunch not included with free admittance).
