Climb the Ladder of Success Elevator Style

Career Wellness Workshop
Thursday, September 26th 5-7pm
The Brimful Life and Hudson Business Lounge have partnered to host a series of career wellness workshops titled, Climb the Ladder of Success Escalator Style. Each workshop addresses topics to help you achieve professional success and personal well-being. Session #1 focuses on overcoming fear and self-doubt in order to boldly go after your professional goals. Whether you are an entrepreneur or company professional, succeeding in your career requires you to take risks and push yourself outside of your comfort zone. But often fear and self-doubt prevent us from taking bold steps. In this netlearning (networking + learning) event, we will put fear and self-doubt in perspective and discuss practical solutions to manage these self-limiting thoughts. Beth Ridley, owner of The Brimful Life, will facilitate the session. Complimentary wine, beer and appetizers served.
