Business Insurance 101

business insurance.jpeg

Insurance mistakes invalidate your policy

  • Does your insurance policy states that it covers you “everywhere”?
  • Does your name and not your company’s (or LLC) appear as the insured?
  • Have you added new business locations or services since you last renewed your liability insurance?
  • Does it scare you to even call your insurance company to ask for information for fear of having a higher premium?

This exciting new workshop will cover all the red flags that may invalidate your current policy. But most importantly it will provide vital information about how you can protect your business from the inherent risks:

  • A customer files a lawsuit against you
  • An alleged breach of contract
  • An employee gets injured on the job
  • A natural disaster destroys your property

Power Tools for Living Workshop

Power Tools for Living Workshop.jpg

In this workshop you will:

Discover who you are at your highest and best
Learn why you are here
Create the next year of your life from this powerful place

WHAT MAKES THIS WORKSHOP DIFFERENT?

In today's culture of entrepreneurship and quest for life-work balance, setting goals for the ideal future has become much more commonplace. However, most people have a disempowered relationship to goal setting and for good reason. We think we have to fix something that's wrong, or set a goal that is limited by our current circumstances and realities.

In this workshop we will take a different approach, employing the power of coaching to get to the heart of your desires. Together we will discover who you truly are at your core, and get clear on the future you yearn to create. You will learn how to show up in the world as the highest version of yourself and best of all, you will create a passion rich road map to creating the life you want.

Get ready to bring these powerful tools into your life and maximize your potential as never before!

How to Get Unblocked

Magic+is+in+you.jpg

When ladies gather in a circle with guided support, we can be heard, supported, and tap into our innermost creativity and power. This workshop is for lady creators of all stripes -- from artists and writers, to folks starting new side hustles or working on research projects -- who want to be inspired and hold each other accountable to turn their latent creative aspirations into a reality.

We'll be using a way of gathering called "Circle of Magic" to help us break through some of our fear by bringing us together with a group of other creators. Circle of Magic is kinda like a book club, but in reverse: instead of reading stuff together, we make things and put them out in the world.

If Circle of Magic were a recipe, it would be…

  • 1 cup accountability
  • 1 cup inspiration
  • 2 cups deep connection with each other
  • 1 cup spiritual flow

This 2 hour workshop will include guided reflection, free writing exercises to help us tune into that little voice inside, and a chance for each person to brainstorm their creative idea with the group. Each person will leave with a hand illustrated guide for creating their own Circle of Magic after the class, as well as action steps for their creative project.

Inviting & Receiving Feedback for Leaders

The last time you received feedback, how did it feel? Frustrating? Unhelpful? Unconstructive?

Would you like the next time to be different?

We talk a lot about how important feedback is to our work and relationships, but we also need to take time to practice and integrate better feedback skills into our work. This workshop is a place to learn how to invite the feedback you need in the way that feels best for you. We will also practice how to receive feedback with grace, and model ways to redirect or ask for clarity when you get it.

By learning how to model inviting and receiving feedback, leaders can gain the feedback they need to grow as leaders, and to lead the growth of their teams, organizations, and businesses.

Networking 2.0: Build authentic relationships that advance your career

Networking 2.0 Build authentic relationships that advance your career.jpg

Getting ahead is all about who you know. But if you're one of those people who cringes at the thought of "networking," you're not alone. It's transactional and often ineffective.

Forget networking; it's all about building authentic relationships!

In this workshop, we'll teach you how to effectively connect with people you want to meet and build authentic relationships that create value for both of you. You'll learn how to leverage your existing network to get introduced, and how to cold contact folks you have no connections with.

We won't just tell you how to build relationships; we'll have you start practicing right away! By the end of the workshop, you'll have made new connections with other participants and learned tips and tricks to continue building relationships long beyond the workshop.

CREATIVE BOOST — THE GOLDEN CIRCLE: HOW TO PROMOTE THE “WHY” OF YOUR BUSINESS ON SOCIAL MEDIA

CreativeBoost_promo_goldencircle.png

Social media, ultimately, can be a stressful and noisy place where it’s hard to get the traction you’re looking for. Most business owners use social media because they feel like they have to be on board, but aren’t exactly sure how it can yield new business.

One of the biggest factors for social media success is the consistency of posting and how you communicate the “why” of your business. Simon Sinek, bestselling author, motivational speaker, and marketing consultant, has identified something he calls the “Golden Circle” which breaks your marketing down into the “what”, the “how”, and the “why”. He argues that it’s essential to start from the inside of the circle, your “why. 

At this Creative Boost, Rachel Wynn, Founder and CEO of Starlight Social, will share: Starlight Social

  • The importance of first identifying your “who.”
  • How to communicate your “why” effectively on LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter in order to grow your business. 
  • A list of action items to help them plan their own social media strategy.

 To get a sneak peek of this topic, watch Sinek’s TedTalk on “How Great Leaders Inspire Action”: http://bit.ly/2GpDEWG

Invest in Success: Own your Leadership Style Power Workshop

How do you show up as a leader?

Leadership Style Power™ workshops engage + empower your high potential leaders as we unlock their potential and help them define their Leadership Style Power™.

Developing your sense of leadership style begins with seeing and knowing yourself as a leader, and creating your own authentic style and brand. Leadership Style Power™ starts with getting grounded in your values, goals and yourself to help you come away with a clear sense of how you want to show up as a leader—both figuratively and literally.

Why should you join us?

Own your Presence, Evolve your Style and Transform your Career …

Communication is 55% physical – your energy, your presence, your power. How you literally show up. (Mehrabian)

Enclothed Cognition is real – what you wear impacts how you PERFORM. (2012 Galinsky)

Consider: How are you presenting yourself? As a leader? Or simply fitting into a predetermined mold? Or, worse, stuck in a rut?

If 2018 is the year you grow your business, get the promotion and increase your influence and visibility, then you need to look at your Leadership Style Power.
