Have you ever felt paralyzed by possibility?
You have a big idea but you don't know where to start.
You want to quit your job but don't know what you'd do instead.
You want a promotion but you've been denied three times.
You just graduated and don't know what career path to choose.
While we were in school, it was pretty simple to make a choice on what to do next in part because of the parameters. We pretty much knew after elementary school came junior high, then we'd go to high school and (maybe?) college. But now, you're in the real world. There's no one to tell us what comes next, and no one to blame if we hate the choice we make.
This conversation will focus on on how to move forward in your life and career when you are unsure what to do next. You might feel stuck in a job with no options and no promotion in sight, or you may be experiencing the infamous creative block preventing you from moving forward on your latest project. If so, know you're not alone. There are ways to get unstuck and move forward. Join us for this dialogue where we'll have the pleasure of hearing from four dynamic women who know your pain and can teach you how to break through the noise and take action.
