Why let your current mental state run you into the ground when there is a better way to manage your life and navigate the challenges that you face on a daily basis?

He has shared the stages with legends in personal development like Brian Tracy, Bob Proctor & Grant Cardone, is the author of “Chasing Success: Lessons in Aligned Performance” and has been featured by CBS, NBC, Fox News, Global News & many more. Dr. Trivedi has worked with clients including FDIC, Johnson & Johnson, Proctor & Gamble, Mobiroo International, Berkshire Hathaway and Professional Athletes.
 
Dr. Alok Trivedi will be leading an Inner Wealth Workshop hosted by Dr. Al Simeone at 6:00pm on April 2nd at the Colorado Springs Marriott on Tech Center Dr. to show our community the secrets of what’s holding you back in your life.

Meeting ID: 595 485 949
Password: 010730​

State Representative Terri Carver has arranged for a representative from the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment (CDLE) to discuss:
 
  • Workshare programs. This is a great option if you have employees that you want to keep but maybe do not have enough work right now due to a decreased work load. It is a shared payment plan between the employer and (CDLE).
 
Also discussed will be general unemployment questions -
  • Are self-employed, 1009 contractors and gig workers eligible?
  • What is the current wait time for checks?
  • Do you have to look for employment if your employer plans on hiring you back?
 
Below are links to look over ahead of time to get the basics. There will be a
Q & A session, so bring your questions. Their phones are very busy so this is your chance for some one on one attention!

In the spirit of staying inspired during these crazy upside-down times I am so excited to announce the BLISS STUDIO SCULPTURE CONTEST!

Two winners will be chosen from submitted designs to have their sculpture produced by the studio- with your help! I will help you to turn your design into a reality! We will prep all of the material and two lucky winners will get to come work with us in the shop for the weekend to build their piece! I will then have it powder coated and help you to do any finishing work, AND if you wish we will also help you to photograph your work and set you up on Call For Entry where you can submit your work to public art calls (which generally rent your piece for a year for $500-$2000- you get to keep your piece and can rent it out year after year all over Colorado, Kansas, nationwide if you so desire!)

Or you might choose to put the piece in your own yard, or in front of your business!

We will also have an Event Page through Bliss Studio & Gallery on Facebook where I encourage everyone to post ideas, inspiration, working images and to give each other encouragement, feedback and inspiration! We will be posting inspirational videos here as well!🙂

You're welcome to work on this individually or as a family! Check out the website for details!
