Please join us for this interactive workshop about getting out of our comfort zone.

What is your comfort zone? Is it easier to stay there than to do something different? It’s called comfort for a reason - it’s comfortable - it’s what we know. But what if that was what is holding us back from trying something new? We are either in "BINGE MODE" or "CLEANSE MODE." All or nothing. There has to be a happy medium in between.

Join Nikki Nigl and Carrie Conover for a three-hour workshop for women, by women. Together we (that means ALL of us - including your awesome self) will connect, collaborate, and create to refresh our minds in the new year.

We will begin hearing from Nikki on her research on the ABCs of how women are socialized and then we will deep-dive on our Actions, Beliefs, and Consequences. Why we do what we do. Why we make the choices we make. And how to enrich our lives and our loves. Carrie will share her story of starting her own business, the power of networking, and identifying a “board of directors” in your life. We will end the session connecting with other women who can help us reach our potential.
