Next Meeting: June 13th
Do you have a vision of where you want to take your business?

Are you working toward a promotion? Thinking about taking your freelance business in a new direction? Or maybe you’re trying to balance the responsibilities of motherhood with the demands of your job. Whatever your professional goals and aspirations, you could benefit from visualizing where you want to go and how you want to feel when you get there. Enter the magic of vision boards! It turns out visualization is one of the most powerful brain exercises you can do, and it works. Psychology Today reported that brain patterns activated when weightlifters lift heavy weights were similarly activated when they just visualized lifting weights.
Let’s use that mental mojo to bring our career goals and dreams to life with help from Candice Gerdes, certified holistic health coach and founder of Mamaste Health. Join Freelance Austin as Gerdes leads us in this hands-on program. At the end of the hour, you’ll leave with a board that will help you visualize what you want to accomplish in your career and ultimately manifest those goals in your professional life. We’ll have poster boards, scissors, glue, markers, and magazines on hand. Feel free to bring your own magazines to cut images from, as well as stickers, washi tape, handwritten notes, postcards, trinkets, photos, invitations, and any other ephemera that will aid in creating a visual representation of the career you hope to cultivate. And if you need some inspiration, check out Pinterest before the program.
