Event description

Does your working day end with a sigh of satisfaction – or a groan of despair that you haven’t dealt with all the calls, emails, updates – done all the ‘stuff’ you meant to do when you started out that morning? Your goals and objectives are often forgotten in the rush of ‘busy-ness’ that is a normal working day. But after a while, you start losing sight of your ‘why’ – and that will wear you down. Without a defining purpose, your business becomes no more than a ‘job’ – and we doubt that’s what you were aiming for when you began. When did you last experience an evening unencumbered by the ‘not done’, the ‘left hangings’ – time to really unwind and relax?

On our two-and-a-half-hour workshop, Gill explain the seven key steps. You’ll get a workbook and tips sheets which will show you how to identify and pin down the challenges you face in your business. You’ll be able to reset your goals – for the day – the week – for 30 days – and beyond! And you’ll begin to remember, and experience, the terrific rewards that taking positive action in your business can bring. 

Please note, this workshop will be held on Zoom. The online workshop format gives you the chance to fully participate in group discussion via video, ask questions throughout the session, learn from like-minded business owners, and build connections. Our online workshops work in the same way as our standard events, with a limited number of attendees, and an expert Delivery Partner leading the session, to ensure you’re able to receive personalised support.
