All Year Resolutions: 2018 Goal Setting Workshop

Posted by WXW on Jan 14, 2018

3rd Thursday, January 18, 2018, 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Mediterrano Restaurant Goal setting is a useful exercise, but what do you do when the New Year’s thrill has worn off and you’re discouraged at how life’s gotten in the way? The answer? Stop focusing on goals, and start focusing on your desires. On January 18th , we’re putting on a new type of goal-setting workshop. One that throws out all the “rules” and shows you how to stoke your own inner fire. It’s based on best selling author and speaker, Danielle LaPorte’s The Desire Map. Here’s how Danielle describes the revolutionary approach to resolutions: “A holistic approach to life planning, using your core desired feelings as the guidance system for your intention & goal setting.” Get ready for a workshop that’s inspiring and practical. Starting with five core areas of your life, you’ll dig into your core desired feelings and use those to guide you to what you want to do, have and experience. Join us Thursday, January 18th, 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. and leave fired-up for 2018! Agenda 11:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.     Check in, casual mingling, delicious lunch 12:30 p.m. – 1:20 p.m.       Desire Mapping 1:20 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.         Wrap-up and close Cost $25.00 per adult if you register by January 14th $30.00 per adult if you register after January 14th $35.00 per adult if you pay at the door (includes delicious lunch!)

Why Your DIY Website is Holding You Back

Posted by WXW on Aug 14, 2018

Guest Blog Post By Janelle Reichman / Ellanyze / ellanyze.com The problem with entrepreneurs is that they think they can do everything themselves. This is probably because building a business from the ground up requires a person to figure out most things as they go. Trying to find clients? Nobody is going to help you with that one. Handling your finances and books? Gotta figure that one out yourself too. Building a brand? Giving a talk? Networking? Developing an elevator pitch? These are all things that need to be figured out on your own when you’re an entrepreneur (at least at the beginning before you’re able to outsource these things). For the most part, this works to our advantage because we’re forced to become extremely resourceful. However, once in a while, it would be good to ask for help. Once in a while, it would be better to have someone else do the work for you, rather than spending the time figuring it out yourself. Designing and building a website is one of those instances. Below are three reasons why you’d be making a very smart move investing in having a professional design and setup your website, rather than choosing to go it alone. 1) It will allow you to think bigger and outside the box. If you hire a professional to design your website, you’ll no longer need to worry about any of the nitty-gritty technicalities of it. You can just say: let’s do it this way. Or, I’m envisioning something like this. Or, I think it would be cool to offer this option to visitors. The worry...
