This is a paid piece from the Woman to Woman Conference.

Simplified: Marissa Rehder wanted to feel the inspiration and enlightenment that came from attending a women's business conference, but living on a farm with three kids kept her from traveling to the big cities. Now, she's in her second year of bringing the Woman to Woman Conference to the region.

Why it matters

  • Woman to Woman aims to bring women in business together to get inspired to take their work to the next level.
  • Last year, 100 women attended, and after an overwhelmingly positive response, Rehder knew she had to bring the event back even bigger. The second annual event on Sept. 9 at Calico Skies Vinyard and Winery has space for up to 200 women.
  • Conference speakers are all successful businesswomen from the Sioux Falls and surrounding area, and they'll share talks on everything from trauma-informed healing to what Taylor Swift can teach us about personal branding.
"When I started my business, I felt very alone in how big I wanted to grow," Rehder said. "But it turns out that there is a whole community of women who want the same. We just need a space to meet and grow together."

Tell me more about the event

The event will run from 1 p.m. to about 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 9.

A total of five speakers will share their expertise, and attendees will have a chance to ask questions, as well as access recordings of the talks afterward.

"It’s for anyone who is looking for some inspiration to keep growing in their lives, looking to meet other women whose goals align and who are wanting to spend time with other women with big dreams," Rehder said.
