We founded Lotus Network based on this belief: It’s never too late to rediscover your potential and make the next chapter of your life the very best.
Our goals are to encourage emotional wellness, promote mental health awareness, and create a safe place for women of all ages to learn, connect, grow and share.
Welcome to the organization that believes it’s never too late to rediscover your potential and make the next chapter of your life the very best.
Lotus Network believes in the power of connections. We raise awareness of purposeful living by inspiring women of all ages to fill their days in authentic and gratifying ways, encouraging women to take on new challenges physically, mentally, and spiritually, and spreading the message that age is no longer a limitation. Last but certainly not least, Lotus Network works to reduce isolation and loneliness by nurturing old friendships, encouraging new relationships, and cultivating a desire for personal growth.
Co-Founders Lisa and Leslie have partnered in the event planning industry for the past 36 years, creating memorable events. These co-directors are using their skills to make memories of an entirely different sort with their non-profit, Lotus Network. They have tapped into the positive aging- and women’s movements embraced worldwide. This passionate, enthusiastic, and dynamic duo “L and L” is focusing on empowering women to embrace purposeful living and prioritize one’s self. They understand the power of building strong and meaningful connections and want to encourage all women to rise to their full potential.
Lotus Network provides opportunities for women to create meaningful connections, personal growth and purposeful living through social and educational resources.
We envision a world where all women, regardless of age, stage of life, geography or identity, feel meaningfully connected to a community and are empowered to find their unique purpose.
Our 2021 Lotus Network Annual Impact Report highlights our achievements and endeavors. Please take a peek to see how we are striving for meaningful connections and realizing our potential. We would like to send a huge shoutout of gratitude to you, and the other generous and ongoing supporters of our community. Our goal is to continue providing new ways to connect with yourself and others by providing inspiring programming and opportunities to engage.
Each month, Lotus Network provides a unique opportunity to explore “It’s Never too Late…” topics. Our live virtual guest speakers share personal experiences, expert advice, wisdom, tools, and resources. These short one-hour segments are current, thought provoking, and sometimes life changing. It is a safe place for women to learn, grow, share and connect.
Each speaker’s page features articles, videos, and various gems of information to further explore each topic.
Let’s Talk About It is your opportunity to connect virtually with other women in a small discussion group setting. Women from across the country can gather together twice a month and discuss topics that build a bridge of inspiration, personal insight, and meaningful connection.
So join in on the fun, meet new friends, and find your voice. It’s your time to actively engage!

Behold the flourishing Lotus. It takes root in the thickest mud and emerges as a beautiful flower, representing purity of body, speech, and mind. Likewise, in our lives, we sometimes become mired—stuck in the mud, so to speak. With focus, effort, and nurturing from people around us, we arise, blossom, and show the world our beauty.
