Do you wake up in a panic remembering something you’ve forgotten?
Do you say yes too much?
Do you feel like your activities and responsibilities are aligned with your goals?

This week I am so excited to bring Van Cooley and her wisdom to you. Van was a counselor at camp last year (Creatives Ignite) and she is going to be one of the speakers this year.

This week is about taking time to recharge yourself. Often I forget to take care of myself. I don’t set clear boundaries and pile too much on my plate. I often say yes, wanting to help and wanting to over deliver but I end up over-promising and missing important things or people.

This week Van will be talking about the things we tell ourselves often are old stories and not a reflection of current truths.

You can always join us for the live taping experience and be part of the community. Come a little early and introduce yourself in the chat, tell us where you are located in the world and say hey! We start at 7:30pm GMT / 2:30pm ET / 11:30am PT / 9:30am in Hawaii on WEDNESDAYS.

POWERSTATION Mastermind Group:
At Recharging You, we know that you want to be a focused, confident entrepreneur with clear direction. In order to do that, you need to get out of your head and learn from other creative entrepreneurs. The problem is you're a solopreneur with limited knowledge and experience on what your next steps need to be which makes you feel uncertain and alone.

I believe every entrepreneur should be supported, challenged, and encouraged as they grow their business. I understand how overwhelming and demanding building a creative business can be because I have been growing my business for 19 years.

Join the Wait list and be first to find out when the next season opens. So you can stop being stuck and doubting your value and your decisions and instead start seeing growth in your mindset and in your business.
