Creating and Making 2018 Your Best Year Yet!

16 January 2018

We were SOLD OUT for the first event of 2018! What a fab evening, with lots of new faces – here’s the pre-event info and your feedback from the event:

Kicking off our Aspiring Women year in magnificent style, Marie Smith will lead us through an evening of (amongst other things) creating our personal Vision Board for 2018.

Are there questions flicking through your mind such as:

Am I curious to explore this? What could this possibly entail?  Is this for me?

Whether you either plan your life in detail or weave your way through life taking opportunities as they crop up, then this event is equally for you.

If you have created a Vision board before or you have never done one (or not even heard of one!) then come along and join in the fun –  there will be something for everyone to explore, learn and develop.

On the evening of 16 Jan Marie will lead you through practical exercises to explore and visualise your conscious and unconscious intentions for 2018 and beyond.  The outputs will be visual and you will have a personal take away on the evening that will either consciously or subconsciously guide you through decision making and creating the year/life you want.

This is a fabulous opportunity to give ourselves space and time to get our minds focussed on what we want to achieve in the year ahead.  For those who came to our session last year, it will create some time to reflect on how the Vision Boards have manifested themselves and shaped our previous year.  You can build on this going forwards or creating a new vision for yourself

This event is one of the most popular we offer (there are some charging huge sums for this sort of workshop now!), so book early to make sure you get a space!  Why not bring a friend, partner or team members to create a shared intention and vision for your future?
