- PAID EVENT: EmpowHERed Success Workshop
Promo Code for our MeetUp: WSW20 (20% off any ticket) This event was thoughtfully crafted for the Bay Area’s goal-oriented, inspired female entrepreneurs & professionals looking to experience success inside and out. Designed and facilitated by a dynamic pair of experienced coaches, the EmpowHERed Success Workshop is for the working woman, at any age or stage, that knows these experiences all too well: -Sitting on a dream of starting something bold & new (be it a business, new job, project or skill), but paralyzed by uncertainty about where to begin, what it would take & if “you’re _____ enough” to make it happen -Battling inner disharmony after achieving goal after goal only to realize you still feel unfulfilled, exhausted & fed up with your own dissatisfaction -Confusion about what you’re really pushing for, but fear that if you slow down, you won’t be successful -Stuck in incessant negative self-talk that keeps you playing small, feeling isolated and like you’re missing what it takes to enjoy a rich experience of success -Feeling like you don’t have the tools or expertise to get where you want to be -Knowing you want something greater for yourself, but consistently allowing your lack of confidence get in your own way of taking action After ten years of coaching experience (and being human beings), Kristin and Katie came to know those patterns inside and out too. The pair could see what wasn't working: negating their gifts, big dreams and muscling forward towards a "success" neither woman wanted. In the EmpowHERed Success Workshop, Kristin and Katie are sharing the tools, strategies & support that have helped their private clients create complete success, or success that you feel on the inside & celebrate on the outside! No more forcing it, no more stubbornly standing in your own way. Just an upgrade to an experience of success that starts inside and works its way out! You’ll walk away from this half-day experience with: -Clarity on what “success” really means to you -Confidence to end self-sabotage and finally take action consistently -Strategies for taking action & time management to help you make focused forward progress -Personalized self-care routines so you have the mental, physical & emotional energy to bring your big ideas to life -Community of like-minded women who will support one another in making big moves through the highs and lows Highlights: -Catered lunch by local, healthy favorite establishments -Access to downloadable organizational tools that you can use again and again -Fabulous women in community and facilitated networking. These are your people! -Engaging workshops and content you put into action while you’re with us so you leave ready to take action! VIP Experience: For the woman ready to create success with confidence & clarity, we are offering a powerful mastermind coaching experience, 1-on-1 session with Katie or Kristin and extra perks to get the most of this amazing day! See FULL event details here on Eventbrite: http://bit.ly/WSW_EmpowHERed2018 Bring your friends and we cannot wait to see you all there! Here's to a phenomenal fresh start.

- SF Fundraiser to Help with The Family Separation Crisis
Please join us for a fundraiser to help with the family separation crisis. No amount is too small. The money will go directly to Catholic Charities. They are in desperate need of money which they will use for diapers, food, clothes etc for the families. Catholic Charities is on the front line helping these families. Please donate directly on their website: https://www.catholiccharitiesrgv.org/Donations.aspx Here is what they are doing: They work tirelessly to help migrants who have been provisionally cleared and released by Border Protection with temporary papers, a future court date, and an ankle monitor. After being processed they are dropped off at the McAllen bus terminal where they wait before leaving for their next destination. The church picks up people from the bus terminal, brings them to their welcome center, and offers them their first warm meal, a bath, a change of clothes, hygiene products, a call home, and assistance with translating their paperwork and travel itinerary — trying to answer questions, ease their concerns, and provide a safe and helping hand.
