Ladies where are you with your New Year's goals? Let me guess. Did you start out with enthusiasm and good intentions to find yourself two or three weeks later back in the same old ruts - “I am not ready, I don’t have what it takes, I do not have time, I do not have money, I do not know how”etc…?

Whether it was weight loss, more time with the family, a new career or other ambitions and projects, we have all been there.
Think for a minute about what that self-denial and suppression of your inner desires is costing you? Perhaps dissatisfaction, peace of mind, happiness, feeling that you matter, business opportunity?

Make 2020 the year of “No Excuses” and stop living on less than you deserve. Unleash your desires, set goals and make a real change in your life. What resources do you need to start living those dreams? Clarity, confidence, and the courage to act.

Renee and I will show you in a practical way how to narrow down your goals into 3 major ones that you simply cannot afford anymore to keep postponing.

Our one-day workshop will consist of:
  • 2 Certified Coaches: Renee Sinning and Beata Seweryn-Reid
  • Interactive Activities
  • Meaningful Relationships
  • Inside-Out Transformation
  • 90 Days Post Workshop Support via Private FB Group
By the end of this event you will:
  • Be able to identify and overcome mental, emotional and external obstacles
  • Learn about true vs. Truth
  • Gain the ability to remain focused on your goals
  • Learn how to reset and adjust your goals and persevere when life gets in the way
  • Learn the H.E.A.L. formula for making better, more empowering decisions
“Successful people don’t wait and leave their choices up to chance. Instead, they make the right decisions early and manage their decisions daily.” John C Maxwell
