Building Wealth from the Inside-Out

Zoom Video Conference

Please join the Washington Network Group (WNG) when we meet with DeDee Cai, Founder/CEO and Coach at Fit To Profit, who will discuss with us "Building Wealth from the Inside-Out: Increase Your Self-Worth to Grow Your Net Worth." Register Online: https://lnkd.in/eV9bXf7 You have the highs and lows in your business. You wondered why running a business seems like charging an uphill battle most of the time. You seem to know what it takes to be successful, but the results do not correlate with the level of knowledge you possess, nor the level of enthusiasm you have. You may seem successful from the outside, but feel unfulfilled from the inside. So you keep will-powering through until one day you are forced to ask yourself the question: "What am I doing wrong?" What if I told you that you don’t have any real business problems, that the issues you have are just a reflection of how you operate as a person, and what you think you are capable of creating. That the state of your net worth is a direct reflection of your level of self-worth. Why does success, and earning money for a business owner have to be such a source of struggle? It does not have to be. This presentation will provide you with the tools to set your mind on what’s possible and reclaim your worth to take your business to the next level.

Needs a location

Please join the Washington Network Group (WNG) when we meet online with Craig Lemasters, author, entrepreneur, investor, and board member, who will discuss with us "Unstuck: How to Unlock and Activate the Insights of Others." Register Online: https://lnkd.in/eeAF2EX Craig has developed a powerful new learning methodology that enables leaders to take action with confidence and deliver meaningful results. His approach focuses on tapping into the right sources of external wisdom – a unique combination of knowledge and experience around a specific topic. He used this same process when he was stuck as a CEO and has since helped countless other organizations find their own missing wisdom. Craig starts big picture by introducing audiences to his four needle movers. He believes these imperatives can materially impact the trajectory of an organization, if implemented properly. Then he drills down into the key steps to getting unstuck. Audiences leave with a tangible process they can immediately activate within their own organizations to increase wisdom and accelerate execution behind key strategic initiatives. Specific takeaways include a deep understanding of how to: 1. Identify wisdom gaps: Recognize the specific wisdom gaps that are holding you back from confident decision-making 2. Find the operators: Find external operators that have the right combination of knowledge and experience to help 3. Extract relevant insights: Intentionally engage the operators in conversations to gain practical insights that will guide your execution Session Timeline: 4:00 PM - Registration & Networking 4:05 PM - Program Begins: Presentation 5:15 PM - Program Ends 5:20 PM - Continued Networking 5:45 PM - Adjourn About Our Speaker: Craig Lemasters is an author, entrepreneur, investor, and board member with more than two decades of success in executive leadership positions, now dedicated to helping senior leaders get unstuck on the major growth challenges to their businesses.
