Weekend wisdom: Be picky about what gets your energy and attention. When everything is important, nothing is.
Time to BLOOM.
Last year, I hosted a one-day workshop (with my amazing tiny team) for people starting and growing their small businesses. This year we are hosting The Bloom Workshop again because of feedback like this: “The Bloom workshop was extraordinary! The multiple, specific, practical tips offered, and the windows into various social media, website, and email platforms, were absolutely worth the price of admission. But the most valuable to me was Courtney generously sharing her wise philosophy around work/life balance—that sought-after, elusive quality we thirst for. She has clearly achieved it far better than most and articulated her real-life experience in the most inspiring way.” – Jo
This year’s workshop will be held in September. If you can’t attend live, recordings, transcripts and support will still be provided. I’ll be joined again by Bailey and Melissa from my team to help you grow in a way that feels good (no matter what stage of business you are in). This year, we’ll have our day-long workshop plus an additional few hours the next day to answer questions and give you real time feedback as you implement what you learn. Find out more about the early-bird pricing and bonus call with me when you sign up by the end of the month. Click here for everything you need to know!
