ready to...

rediscover the magic of slumber parties where we find that kind of close, heartfelt connection that never really goes away and a space where we can let loose, connect on a deeper level, and reclaim our true selves

This years theme is: Self-Love

We all know that love is the most powerful human emotion. It makes people do impossible things. Yet, there is not enough love in this world. Especially, self-love. Self-love can transform our lives in countless ways. It allows us to embrace our true selves, release self-doubt and negative self-talk, and cultivate a deep sense of worthiness and inner peace. But how do we practice self-love?

Developing with Devan is offering tiered, pay-what-fits-you pricing for Elevate tickets.

At Developing with Devan, we believe that money shouldn’t be the reason someone cannot attend this life-changing event. We want to create access for all women and not create a buying experience filled with scarcity and classism.

So, with that in mind, for Elevate 2024 I am creating a sliding scale for ticket pricing.

This idea is inspired by the Green Bottle Model from Worts + Cunning and the intentional use of this practice by Simone Seol inside her membership program, HOME.

Tier One

$ 1297
  • If you have access to financial security, own property, or have personal savings;
  • If you are able to pay for "wants" and spend little time worrying about securing necessities in your life;
  • If you have economic privilege and power in our community, this price is for you.
  • By choosing this price, you are “paying it forward” and contributing to a more equitable world by supporting conference access for those with less.

Tier Two

$ 897
  • You may be paying off debt or working to build savings, but you also have access to steady income.
  • You do NOT spend most of your time thinking about meeting basic needs such as food, shelter, medical care, child care, etc.
  • Making this investment might mean you might have to cut back on some discretionary spending in your life (such as going out to dinner, buying coffee, buying a new outfit, or going on vacation), but the sacrifice is short-term, and will not harm you in the long term.

Tier Three

$ 547
  • You have access to basic needs such as food, housing, and childcare, though sometimes it may feel difficult.
  • You are able to put away money each month to save up to be able to pay for the conference, but the middle tier price would mean that you have to save for longer than 12 months.


Here Are Some Important Things to Note

Every room is a suite.

You can get a King Suite or a Double Queen Suite. If you purchase a ticket at the Tier One level, I am offering you the option to share a Double Queen suite with up to 4 people or a Kind suite with up to 3 people. Email with the names and emails of the people sharing the room with you.

We only have 40 rooms available. I cannot get any more rooms due to SU events happening that same weekend. This means grab your ticket as soon as possible.

If you just want a day pass, email me at to purchase. There are very limited day passes available due to the space in the conference room.
