Episode 201: Lightning in a Bottle: Alex Howland on Women’s Mental Health, Legacy & Generational Wealth Here in Northwest Arkansas

About the Show:

“Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and, above all, confidence in ourselves. We must believe we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.” – Marie Curie

Alex Howland is a passionate advocate for women’s empowerment, having worked with women for the past ten years. She is the founder of Dovetail, an event in January 2023 that seeks to provide an open forum for women to discuss topics like legacy, generational wealth, business, and mental health and wellness.

“We as women have to really make our own way. My mom immigrated here from Italy when she was a baby, and it was really impactful to see her be able to come from literally nothing and grow a really successful woman-owned business.” 

– Alex Howland

Alex Howland has started a program called Dovetail for women in Northwest Arkansas to provide a place for them to connect, learn, and grow. Alex met Randy Wilburn while working on the Place Summit event, and they have become friends. Dovetail will be held in January 2023 at Theater Squared, with an intentional grounding session led by Michaella Yoga, PowerPoint presentations, conversations, and an optional happy hour sponsored by Women Run. Dovetail will cover legacy, generational wealth, business, diversity, and mental health and wellness topics. Alex hopes to create more community partnerships and provide an open forum for attendees to have meaningful conversations.

In this episode, you will learn the following:

1. What is the Dovetail program, and how will it help women in Northwest Arkansas?

2. What innovative ideas and conversations will be explored at the Dovetail event?

3. How can mental health and wellness be addressed to help support women in difficult times, such as during and after the pandemic?
