Heart Of The Matter Workshop

Many of you know that I belong to the networking group Business Networking International ( BNI).  Those of you not familiar with BNI, it’s a group that meets weekly for what I call “on purpose” networking.  Our group is twenty one members strong, eclectic in the professions that are represented ( only one person per profession is allowed) and wonderfully energetic. I’ve belonged to a BNI for many years.  I attribute the growth of my business to much of what’s done at our BNI weekly meetings. When I relocated my home/business this summer finding a BNI chapter was tops on the list of must do.

In January I attended two highly regarded what I like to call “think tank” conferences.  I am in a place in my life and in my business where I am ready to think outside the box again!  I came out of both of those events pumped!!

One evening during the January conference I couldn’t sleep…too many possibilities swimming in my brain.  I got up, made some tea and 45 minutes later had create what was for me a profound mind map.

In sharing this at my BNI meeting I was encouraged to partner with the life coach of the group to co-teach this technique.

It didn’t take much encouraging to work with Donella,  I just love her.  What was cool however, was when we sat down to discuss the potential of a workshop we simply created one – boom!

LOVE that!!!

Here is what we are up to:

Who are these crazy facilitators?
