Train Your Brain to Work FOR your Goals Instead of AGAINST Them

With all of the excellent tips and tactics you have learned in seminars (like these!) and read on the web, you likely know what you need to do to have a great career and life: 

Ask for what I want. Network. Figure out my brand. Make time for myself. Exercise more. Say ‘NO.’

And yet, many of us still feel stuck. The reason is that we are not logical beings, but rather, human ones. Our minds are complicated, emotional, associative places that produce staggering works of genius and also staggering amounts of self-sabotage. In this seminar, you will learn how to use your most precious asset, your brain, to work FOR your goals instead of AGAINST them. You will understand the processes underlying your daily decisions, stressors, and thoughts, and how to leverage them in more constructive ways. You will leave with a set of “exercises” to train your brain to be a lean, mean, dream-getting machine.  

During the workshop, Samantha will raffle off a 1-hour kickstarted session to one lucky attendee. In this session, you two will develop a strategy to change one area of your life. As a bonus, the session includes an inventory exercise for you to "take stock" of how you are doing in your life.
