    Essential Self-Care Strategies for Challenging Times

    Let’s face it, 2020 has been challenging in more ways than one -- a global pandemic, national politics, an economic downturn, job loss, and social unrest. It’s been a doozy of a year. At this point, we are all in need of some essential self-care. But what is that, really?

    This course will answer the question of what self-care REALLY is and what it is not. You’ll get actionable strategies to help alleviate stress, exhaustion and over-whelm. And just in time for the holidays!

    Do Something Everyday that Scares You: Exploring Your Options

    1. Find a job

    2. Start a business

    3. Buy a business

    4. Work for a contractor

    Eleanor Roosevelt talked about courage in the face of fear. “You must do the thing you think you cannot do.

    My Story: In 2001, I accepted a buyout from the company that I began working for at age 17. I moved to Washington, DC on September 22, 2001. I had planned to find a job in a city that I loved and understood that it might take 12-18 months to find a great job. In the meantime, I created an image consultancy (more about that on Dec 14). With my image consulting credentials, I started a business that put food on my table for 15 years. But the work was not consistent, so I also worked for a small business as a subcontractor on a federal contract. Over time, a friend and I started a consulting firm that now employs three independent contractors.

    Come to the workshop prepared to answer this question: What would you do if you weren’t afraid?
