Reclaiming Purpose: How a Spiritual Lens Can Help Your Organization Be More Efficient, Effective, and Holistically Grow
Limited Capacity seats available

Purpose is the glue that holds together the mission, vision, and growth arc of a startup or freelance business. It is what keeps leaders committed, clear, and grounded as they navigate difficult moral and logistical questions in their leadership and management contexts. Clarity around personal and organizational purpose is integral to self-care for entrepreneurs and the holistic sustainability of their business.

This workshop, Reclaiming Purpose, proposes an exciting new model for using a spiritual lens (not rooted in any single faith tradition) to help entrepreneurs care for themselves while serving their clients with greater effectiveness and care. Using language and proven skills rooted in spiritual discernment and personal empowerment, participants will discuss their deeper calling within their career and organization and craft individual purpose statements. They will then collaborate with facilitators and peers in order to use these purpose statements to identify specific action items that they will be able to integrate into their freelance business practices.

This Fireside Workshop is especially helpful for those newer entrepreneurs and freelancers who are looking to establish holistic self-care practices and for those who find themselves at a career crossroads who are seeking language to help orient their next professional development needs.

Limited Capacity seats available

You've been doing it all, full time office gig, side hustle, running errands on the weekend with everyone else and sitting in the same traffic with everyone going the same exact way. You know there's a different way to live, so every once in a while you take a day off and get a peek behind the curtain to what it would be like to really do it. You step into a coffee shop and see people doing THE THING. That is, working, on their own schedule, on their own business, at their own pace. And they seem happy. But you don't know how to do it on your own. And you're afraid. And you don't know where to begin. This workshop is for people who have a skill that they would like to turn into a full time, freelance business, but don't know how to get it off the ground. We'll go over 10 practical and applicable elements to moving from side-hustle to full time freelancer. This session will help you re-frame your reality showing you what it takes and giving you the tools to get there. Finally, we'll help develop the mindset you need to take the leap!

How to Achieve Financial Stability and Work-Life Balance as a Freelancer
Limited Capacity filling up

As a freelancer it's easy to get stuck in a cycle of saying yes to every project that comes your way.

When business is going well, it's hard to find time to relax and live your life. When business is slow, it's hard to think about anything other than making next month's rent.

As a freelancer, these cycles are routine, but the stress never seems to go away. After working through my last dry spell, I developed a few strategies that will help you achieve the lifestyle you want.

In this talk I'll give you the framework you need to improve your work-life-balance by sharing how to analyze your finances, determine your runway, and align your your personal and business goals.
