Collage- open house Our Open House was a red letter day!  We offered a daring approach to networking and business building with a little trepidation.  The response?  Applause, smiles and magnetic energy throughout the room.  We tried capturing this in our collage.

Instead of “What do you do?” we offered questions that helped people actually learn and connect with each other.  In one exercise, voices were so loud, we had to pause and ask people to please whisper.

We promised tips that can be immediately applied to your business and life- not the theoretical. We selected just 3 tips to include here.  Let us know what you think.

The high point was our new “Give & Take” segment where people said what they needed and within seconds other people generously offered to help them.  (I asked if we should bring back the “30-second elevator” speech.  I didn’t get any takers.)  We gave some examples below.

We’ll take the feedback from our survey and plan our next speakers. See our Top Ten Topics for what’s in store.

We’re committed to taking this to the next level!  Are you with us?  Our next meeting is Wednesday, July 8th, 6 – 8 PM at Fika, 566 10th Avenue at 41st Street.

RSVP early.  Our Open House was oversubscribed and we had to turn people away.

Here’s to us bold innovators!

What People Are Saying. . .
I just completed Michele’s 90-day MORE program. As Michele will remind you, if you decide to study with her, things don’t happen to us; they happen for us. Michele happened for me just when I needed what she is committed to teaching. Commitment is the key word because she is always thinking of what she can do to help others live happy, successful lives filled with joy. She takes care to really understand what each of her students needs and instinctively suggests just the right message, yoga exercise, meditation, food, experience, etc., that will resonate with them to help them courageously live the life they want. Michele is a gift you deserve to give yourself when you’re finally ready to live your best, authentic life.

...I have suffered from emotional eating for 6 years, during which I have juggled and switched through different therapists and treatment options. I continued to feel "stuck" as the approaches focused on the past and why I acquired my disease. ...Michele's plan of remaining present- right here, right now- in addition to helping me choose love for myself, has allowed me to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually... Michele is a true gift from God.

The benefits have been significant. My reason for doing this yoga is to improve and maintain good health. Each morning class provides me with the motivation to get up and improve my physical and mental strength. I also think one of the greatest things about Michele’s 365 Yoga Course is I can join a class any day of the week, drop in at any time during the class and leave at a time that works for me and my schedule, from anywhere I am.
