Rave Reviews for November’s Event: “My Business Is Out To Get Me! Reducing Stress and Finding the Work/Life Balance”

Thank You

On Nov. 8, 2017, Vest Pocket Business Coalition presented “My Business Is Out To Get Me! Reducing Stress and Finding the Work/Life Balance.”  During this workshop, presenters Steven Beal and Debbie Coleman walked attendees through a custom workbook to help them create a personal action plan for:

  • Finding a work/life balance
  • Finding time for exercise
  • De-stressing during a stressful work day
  • Making time for personal growth (rejuvenation and more sleep!)
  • Reconnecting to one’s passion — the thing that inspired the business owner to start his or her own business

The title sponsors for the Vest Pocket event were Richards, Brandt, Miller, Nelson. Additional sponsors include Local First.
