Find Out How ‘Expressing Gratitude’ Empowers You!

Did you know that expressing gratitude can actually turn any negative energy you are feeling into positive energy? There is a universal Law of Gratitude that is a powerful force for shifting your energy to bring you more of what you want in your life and less of what you don’t want. By acknowledging how grateful you feel for what you already have right now in your life, you are ‘Allowing’ more good things into your life.

Coffee is Good for Business

Business is built on connections and relationships – not just texts, emails or a phone call. Inviting someone for coffee can create new opportunities. If you do it right, the benefits can outweigh the ‘extra time’ it will take out of your day. Leave it up to chance, and all you’ll get is another debit on your coffee card.

October Workshop

Wednesday, October 18th

8:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Quality Resort Bayside

CONNECT! Build, Leverage and Influence Your Network.

Building lasting, genuine connections is good for business.

Many small business owners don’t want to network because they think it’s about shoving your business card in someone’s hand and boasting about what you do. In fact, networking is actually about getting to know people whom you can help and who can help you.

This jam-packed workshop has been expanded to 2.5 hours to give you a variety of tools and techniques to help you effectively and efficiently build, leverage and influence your network.
