    Are you feeling overloaded, overwhelmed and stressed?

     You have only so much time and energy, so when you spread yourself out, you end up spread thin. You also end up hurting your chances of being highly successful.

    Image result for the one thing

     This workshop will help you focus and introduce you to the concepts behind the #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling book The One Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan.

    When you want the absolute best chance to succeed at anything you want, your approach should always be the same.  Go small.

    “Going small” is ignoring all the things you could do and doing what you should do.  It’s recognizing that not all things matter equally and finding the things that matter most.  It’s a tighter way to connect what you do with what you want.  It’s realizing that extraordinary results are directly determined by how narrow you can make your focus.”

     The good news is big success doesn’t have to be time consuming and complicated, and in the process of becoming highly successful, you’ll actually feel less overloaded.

    This is a members only event. Space is limited so make sure to register early!

    Meet Emily M. Thompson: Podcaster, author, entrepreneur, cocktail shaker, homemaker, and a warrior for creatives. 

    "If I’ve learned one thing in my time as a creative, and in my time helping other creatives start and run their own businesses, it’s that the road to discovering your passion and making it profitable is a long and bumpy one. It takes gumption, consistent effort, and a bit of a rebellious nature."

    Hear more of Emily's story and insight to Being Boss at our final leadership luncheon of the year! 

    Members and non-members welcomed! 

    Please note that we have moved to the Bessie Smith Cultural Center.
