Do you sometimes feel like your small business owns you instead of you owning it? If your company’s operations depend solely on information, processes, or expertise that only you have, it can result in you feeling trapped with no time to recharge your batteries, exercise, or enjoy activities you love.
At our November educational event, “Sharpening the Saw”, we’ll help you plan for 2019 with strategies to give you the freedom and flexibility you always wanted from running your own business. Business strategist Lark Dean Galley will present innovative strategies and tips to help you keep your business running smoothly when you to take some personal time off – or just need to step away from the business for a day to work on long-term planning. You’ll also learn how to systematize activities so that your employees have an operational manual that empowers them to cover almost any position in your company.
Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Debbie Coleman and Certified Personal Fitness Trainer Steven Beal will share simple ways to de-stress with stretching, exercise, and deep breathing at the office – and how to use mindfulness to stay connected with your passion (the reason why you started the business) throughout the day.
