|Next meeting topic for Tuesday, May 13th at Noon:
The Feminine Roadmap for
Nourishing your life while making a living
Do punishing exercises and torturous diets result in frustration and despair? Has your relationship with food and your body been an emotional irritation, undermining your efforts to thrive? Julia Curry, Eating Psychology Coach, will explain how to integrate mind, emotions, body and spirit into your life in order to achieve balance and fulfillment. Julia will discuss strategies and nutrition principles that challenge your way of eating and weight and health management while factoring in relationships, family, work and sexuality.
Julia Curry is an Eating Psychology Coach, Wellness Advocate and Speaker guiding women (and a few men) toward transforming their relationship with food, making peace with their bodies and discovering a more confident and joyful life.
Julia graduated with a BA in Communications and went on to work with women in various ministry settings over the next 15 years. Along the way she studied nutrition and spiritual formation in pursuit of her own healing. Julia received formal training at The Institute or the Psychology of Eating, finding that her own struggles with emotional eating, anxiety and poor body image have been her best teachers.

WHY are you in Business???
The Spring Rush is in full gear... flowers blooming, grass to cut, family gatherings, sporting events, phone calls, emails, endless meetings and daily demands. The balancing act of business and family can bring anxiety. Remember WHY you are in business.
Your passion, dedication and job skills set you apart to be the best in the industry. Take a moment for you to refresh, energize and engage life. Would love to share a motivational book to keep you focused and your life in balance? Start with Why and Leaders Eat Last by Simon Sinek. Both books are highly recommend by another friend/business woman who shares her passion and "Why," in business.
"To be truly successful, hire people who believe what you believe." by Simon Sinek.
Be passionate about your WHY!
