Futureproof Your Mind/Body Health to Create a Thriving Business

October 26, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join Ann McCluskey to ensure you and your business are ‘futurefit’ – prioritise your health, and avoid burnout!

The only way that your business will thrive is if you do. Don’t think of putting yourself first and prioritising your health as self-indulgent – it’s absolutely essential if you’re to avoid plummeting down the slippery slope of burnout, a pitfall experienced by many small business owners before you.

There’s often a temptation to put all of your time and energy into your business and losing sight of the reason you started it in the first place. If your passion becomes an obsession and that balance you were looking for feels like a distant memory, it’s time to ‘press pause’.

Ann’s session considers what needs to be in place to build a business that’s :-

  • aligned with your personal vision
  • in harmony with the rest of your life
  • flexible, allowing you to invest your energy in what you love

It will be practical with time for a Q & A, and the themes include :-

  • Mind Mastery
  • Self-Awareness
  • Energy Management
  • Personal Boundaries
  • Mind/Body Balance

To ensure you and your business are ‘futurefit’- thriving no matter what – join us on 26 October.
