Summer is here. The months have been flying by, you’ve been busy doing your thing, and then BAM – You blink, and it’s June (wait, how did that happen?).
June marks the end of the first half of the year, and it's the perfect time for a mid-year review.
You may have set goals at the beginning of the year, but when life gets busy, it’s easy to lose sight of those goals and get off track. So let’s pause here, take a breath, and get strategic.
How is your business doing? How are YOU doing? Is it time to put your foot on the gas or pivot?
If you're feeling behind, you don’t want to miss this event! Lisa Wood of Sprout New Media will lead an interactive workshop where you’ll look back the first half of the year, identify where you want to go next, and start making a plan to make it happen.
You’ll walk away feeling energized and focused, with renewed enthusiasm for your business.
Lisa Wood is a certified business + life coach, mentor to small business owners, and the founder of Sprout New Media and The Hive. She focuses on teaching women how to build sustainable businesses, market them effectively and authentically, and reduce the often overwhelming aspects of being a solo business owner.
Do something fun to celebrate your independence! And we will see you in August.
