Career & Financial Coaching
NEW! Mondays, August 21 & 28 (2-weeks), 7-9 PM. Pre-registration required.
“Vision without action is a dream. Action without vision is simply passing the time. Action with Vision is making a positive difference.” – Joel Barker
Trying to make a positive change in your life? Give yourself the gift of supported, focused time to transform your vision for a brighter future into an action board. According to Neil Farber, M.D., Ph.D., Action Boards are based on research studies in psychology, mind-brain science, and goal achievement. You will have the option to cut and paste inspiring images and words onto a physical or online virtual board (that you can use as a screensaver). The goal is to create a useful transformation tool that you use regularly, not just pretty pictures that gather dust. Late summer is a great time to regroup and set-up a fresh focus for fall.
