"Vault Empowers was a transformational experience that I'll always remember. I left the conference not just feeling motivated, but equipped with the proper tools I desperately needed to perfect my gifts and businesses. Today, I lead with greater intention, greater purpose and feel unashamed to live my best life!"

Brittany J.

"I’m so glad that I attended the Vault Empowers conference! I gained a lot of information to further my business and I was inspired to do more! It was also a plus to gain new relationships with like-minded people. My highlight was meeting Greg McKeown, the author of the book I was reading at the time “Essentialism.” I look forward to next year's event!"

Jeanelle D.

"I learned so much about entrepreneurship, essentialism, branding, and having a strong drive towards my dreams and aspirations. The advice Mr. Harvey and the other speakers gave was powerful. I can’t wait to go back to Vault to be around people with the same passion as me -- to be successful in what they love to do."

Cris S.

"I attended the Vault Conference and all I can say is that the insights I learned have truly stayed with me. Everyone would see a benefit from attending. From having access to remarkable speakers sharing “gold” on topics like raising funds to launch a new company, to presenting yourself in a successful light from Mr. Harvey himself. I can’t wait to see what’s in store at Vault in 2020!"
