GEW - Free classes to learn & grow your business skills

Hi Reader,

Have you heard of Global Entrepreneurship Week (or GEW)? It's a free educational conference that happens every November on all things business ownership and being your own boss.

So of course my business owner friends should make plans to attend! But even if you don't have a business or side hustle, there are networking events & skills classes that could help anyone.

And I'm teaching two such classes at GEWKC!

It's Smart, Not Selfish! (How to establish boundaries to get your own work done)
Tuesday, Nov. 14
Bank Midwest
, 1100 Northwest South Outer Road, Blue Springs

Find yourself too busy helping your employees or coworkers or putting out fires to get your own work done? In this class, we’ll discuss a step by step process for carving out time for your work priorities. You’ll have time in class to make your own personalized plan, and we’ll do a bit of role playing to practice holding our boundaries around that plan.

Attendees must confirm attendance via Eventbrite for free tickets due to limited seating (max. 12).

60 Second Self Care at Work
Wednesday, Nov. 15
PlexPod Westport

Self care has become a buzz word that’s often used to sell us expensive or time-consuming products. The truth is, self care IS important, but it doesn’t have to be pricey or take a huge chunk of your day to be effective. Before you give up on self care because you can’t afford a fancy spa day or find the time for a luxury vacation, come to this session to learn and practice multiple ways to make time for self care during your busy work day. You’ll also leave with a list of over 60 free or low-cost ideas for self care.

Again, all the classes and events are free to attend so I hope to see you at GEWKC in a couple weeks! It's a great resource in our community, so take advantage of it if you can.

Check out for the full schedule of events & to register for classes you want to attend!

Breathe deep. Drink plenty of water. You got this!

Time Honored Coach

Time is the single most valuable thing we have. I help busy business owners get out of overwhelm to work fewer hours in their business (without sacrificing income!) so they can get back to enjoying their business and their life again.

Happy Monday Reader! We interrupt this regularly scheduled broadcast to bring you an important request. I could really use your help to grow my business! You've been here a while, so you know I'm passionate about helping people understand themselves, value themselves & their time, and protect their time. I'm happy to talk about this stuff all the time, for free. But unfortunately, we live under capitalism and I have to keep my freeloader cat in treats and kibbles. And that's NOT free! Said...

Happy Monday Reader! Last week I told you about starting the 100 Day Goal Journal, and I'm happy to report I haven't given up yet! I know, that might not seem like much of a win, but as your coach I know it's important to celebrate every success, no matter how small. I've completed a full 10 day cycle now. I will admit that results so far are mixed because being on vacation for nearly a week made it way more difficult to follow through. So I did not achieve my initial 10-day goal, but I was...

Hello Reader! We'll be at Equal Minded Café at 4327 Troost Ave, KCMO from 5:30-7:30pm on Thursday, June 27. There is no charge to attend the networking event, just like before, but please plan to purchase a beverage to support our host business. (Pro tip--they have an amazing chai at Equal Minded!) A couple reminders: Our host doesn't offer food during the week, so we can bring dinner with us if needed. Free parking is available on both sides of the street in front of the business. Please...
