DICKINSON — The newly opened Aspire Coaching and Speaking in Dickinson is planning to host an event aimed for women and whose purpose will benefit the Domestic Violence and Rape Crisis Center (DVRCC).

“Aspire to Empower Your Mind and Body” will take place from 10 a.m. to noon on April 2 at the Dickinson Eagles Club, with all proceeds going to the DVRCC. The event will focus on empowering the mind, but also educating people on basic self defense moves with LaCota Domine from Dominion Boxing-MMA and Fitness . All women ages 16 and up are welcome to attend by registering prior to the event.

The event is $25 per person, but local businesses and individuals wishing to provide scholarships to victims of domestic violence can do so by paying that fee ahead of time through the Aspire Coaching and Speaking website .

Ellie Papineau, who owns Aspire Coaching and Speaking in Dickinson, decided to host an event as an opportunity for women in Dickinson to learn on how they can empower their mind in terms of communication and connection to those around them. This event aims to give women the tools to also evaluate their strengths and weaknesses and what they can improve on.

“We’re really encouraging women to explore what they aspire to do, to be, to become, to create. So it really is, ‘Aspire to, dot dot dot,’” Papineau said. “That’s what we’re encouraging women to do. At this event, we’re going to do some empowerment for the mind and the body… (It’s) just a short time for women to take some time for themselves because we’re really not great at it. We’re not great at taking time for ourselves, so this is just a little time for ladies to take some time for themselves.”

When deciding to host an event of this nature, Papineau knew she wanted to give back to the community in a powerful way.

“We selected that organization right off the bat just because of empowerment of mind and body is something that those ladies there need more than ever and we want to make sure that they know that they can see there are women out here who are on their side, who are with them… who are maybe examples of what they’ve gone through and persevered on the other side,” she said, adding, “... There is nothing like a tribe of ladies together to show some strength and solidarity. So that’s what we want them to know is there are people out here who are pulling for them and are wanting great things to happen in their lives as well.”

A newly Dickinson business called Aspire Coaching and Speaking will host an event on April 2, 2022, in Dickinson, to help benefit the Domestic Violence and Rape Crisis Center.

Papineau, who owns Aspire Coaching and Speaking in Dickinson, works alongside Kim McNaney and they’ve both moved on from the insurance world. They went from leading a team and building a business to broaden it and help other businesses and/or individuals reach their aspirations. Aspire Coaching and Speaking, which launched at the start of this year, does anything from individual to team coaching as well as speaking in terms of communication and connection, Papineau said, adding that she is a John Maxwell certified speaker and coach.

“I spent 15 years, prior to my 12 years in insurance, in addiction counseling and mental health. So this Aspire business is really just marrying the two careers that I’ve had in my life and I really feel like this is where God has brought me right now. This is my way to help people right now,” she noted.

Looking ahead, Papineau hopes to host an event quarterly throughout the year and continue to partner with other Dickinson businesses.

Due to limited space for the self defense portion of the event, registration is required to attend. To register, visit aspirecoachingandspeaking.com/programs .
