Buena Vista Historical Winery
How many of us take time out of our busy lives to think about their vision? Not many. Let’s take Walt Disney’s advice and spend some time dreaming… As part of WINE WOMEN’s Career Series, Claire Myers, Master Certified Coach, will walk us through an exercise that will help lay the ground work for a powerful, impactful vision statement. In this first half of the workshop, Claire will share her own personal journey with vision statements and how they have helped and continue to help provide clarity in her decision making.
The second part of the workshop will be a brief tutorial on utilizing LinkedIn for lead generation. This will be applicable if you own a business, are in sales, or are simply looking to expand your network. Please bring your laptop or tablet to produce some real time results.
