In a world marked by rapid change and transformation, where the very fabric of society undergoes constant evolution, there arises a beacon of hope and empowerment known as EmpowerCon. After a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic, this one-day empowerment event is set to return to the LA Convention Center on October 21, 2023, and it is not merely a moment; it is a movement.

EmpowerCon may, at first glance, appear to be just another conference, but it is far from ordinary. Presented by the esteemed 501(c)(3) media enterprise, UNSUGARCOATED™ Media, the event’s theme, “Empower Your Mind, Transform Your Life,” takes center stage, addressing the profound challenges of the post-pandemic era.

The Power of Inspiration and Empowerment

In the wake of recent global events, from the collective trauma of the pandemic to the financial crises that have left many reeling, society faces a unique set of challenges. The educational landscape is evolving, and mental health challenges are on the rise. In this landscape, EmpowerCon rises to the occasion.

Aalia Lanius, the creator of EmpowerCon, is a multi-award-winning producer, writer, and founder of UNSUGARCOATED™ Media. She herself is a resilient survivor who has weathered life’s storms. Lanius encapsulates the essence of EmpowerCon: “We believe that the greatest lessons in life are often found off the beaten path, in the unexpected challenges that change the course of our lives. EmpowerCon is about turning those challenges into opportunities, reclaiming our confidence and purpose, and living each day without limits.”

Originally launched in 2019 in Los Angeles, a place that Lanius has a familial historical connection to, the pandemic thwarted her efforts to hold the inaugural event until now. Relaunching the event has had its challenges, but Lanius says she has already been invited to bring EmpowerCon to London as a result of sharing its purpose and impact.

A Celebration of Resilience

EmpowerCon is not about merely surviving; it’s about thriving. The event has a history of attracting esteemed speakers, including Oscar and Emmy award-winning film producers and world record breakers. In the past, luminaries such as Michael Uslan, the Batman film Originator and Executive Producer of Oscar-winning “JOKER,” Norma Bastidas, Ultra-Athlete & 1st female to break the Guinness World Record for the longest triathlon in history and survivor of human sex trafficking, and Phillip Andrew Barbb, 2x Emmy-nominated TV Producer and Author, have graced its stage.

This year, the lineup is equally impressive, with Larry Namer, Co-Founder of E! Entertainment, Sean Swarner, a two-time terminal cancer survivor and the subject of Emmy-nominated “True North: The Sean Swarner Story,” and Jennifer Gimenez, actress (Vanilla Sky, Blow) and model turned Addiction Recovery Advocate among those who will inspire and empower the audience.

EmpowerCon is a testament to the indomitable spirit of the human race. It’s about showcasing inspirational leaders who have weathered life’s storms and emerged stronger. It also features empowering performances that touch the soul and remind us of the power of the human spirit.

Facilitating Crucial Discussions

EmpowerCon is not content with surface-level inspiration; it delves deep into the heart of society’s critical issues. The interactive Q&A sessions provide a platform for candid conversations, where thought leaders engage with the audience in meaningful dialogues. It’s about breaking down barriers, building bridges, and seeking solutions.

The Intersection of Mental Health and Success

In an age where the pursuit of success often leads to the neglect of mental health, EmpowerCon puts mental well-being at the forefront. The workshop on the intersection between mental health and success is a pivotal step toward redefining our approach to achievement. It’s about finding success that aligns with our mental and emotional well-being.

Why EmpowerCon Matters

In these challenging times, EmpowerCon reminds us that empowerment is not a luxury; it’s a necessity. It’s about equipping ourselves with the tools to navigate the tumultuous waters of change, to find strength in adversity, and to rewrite our narratives. It’s about unity, resilience, and the unwavering belief that we can create a better future.

The world needs events like EmpowerCon, now more than ever. It’s a call to action, an invitation to rise above adversity, and a reminder that the power to change lives resides within us all.

As we embrace the future, let EmpowerCon be the catalyst for positive change, the source of inspiration, and the platform for transformation. It’s not just an event; it’s a movement, and it’s waiting for others to be part of it. To learn more, visit www.unsugarcoatedmedia.com/empowercon.
