Live Demos to Go
What a fun and different kind of speaker at your next event? Call today and book Beth Allen for an appearance at your women's group, church, synagogue, or workplace. She will pack up her tool bag and give you a hands-on live demo so you too can be a HIP Chick. This crazy chick even took a toilet to NBC studios, who knows what she'll bring to you!
But Beth always brings her DIY expertise and enthusiasm to empower women to be smart, capable and confident around the house and in every thing else they tackle. Woman to woman, she teaches them how to be fully empowered through Self-Reliance. Her presentations are made up of inspiration, education, humor and a little sass!
