Designing Your Life for Women: New Dates Announced!

The response to our new Designing Your Life for Women series ran by Susan Burnett and Kathy Davies has been incredible. 40 Life Designing women came together two weeks ago for an experience we hope positively impacts them for a long time to come. The workshop was so inspiring and successful, we’re proud to announce dates for two more events! There’s also a bonus opportunity for enhanced wellness with Andrea Ciafardini, instructor and owner of Holistic Connections.

Register for June 17th-18th and/or July 22-23 today!

Here’s a sample agenda to give you a feel for what these workshop weekends include:

“I highly recommend this wonderful workshop! I found immense value in the interaction with the other workshop participants, as their unique perspectives helped me to see my decision-making process in a completely different light.  This insight, along with the terrific activities and tools taught by our instructors Susan and Kathy, facilitated a very meaningful shift in how I look forward in my journey toward my next goal.”  ~ Suzanne Naone, Graduate Student , Mother of Two and Baby Boomer

“This workshop came at a perfect time. It was an exercise in taking stock of my life, deciding what is important, and intentionally taking steps to prototype and work towards my ideal life. What’s more, it taught me that there are multiple paths for my happiness if only I’m willing to be honest with myself and put in the effort to continuously grow, learn, and strive. Thank you, Susan and Kathy, for this wonderful experience.”

“This workshop helped me immediately design a more balanced and energy giving typical work week, and even helped me reframe and redesign my business trip from a demanding energy drain to an energizing week! I loved the Odyssey Planning and best of all the feedback I got from the diverse group of women in the room. They heard me and helped me. Thank you all!” ~ Lauren Hipschman, Program Manager, LinkedIn and Millennial
