After ONE networking event, I booked three new clients and have continued to book new clients at each subsequent event! Because District Bliss makes the events so warm, engaging and welcoming, that awkward networking ice is broken right away and business owners can immediately connect with perfect-match, top paying, high integrity, fun customers. You won't find this at other events. With the top-tier sponsoring opportunity, we are truly thrilled and have found a comfortable, monetizing networking hub — couldn't be happier!

Are you ready to find out exactly what resilience is, and explore holistic practices that have been scientifically proven to reduce stress and create resilience so that we can stay calm, collected and composed no matter what life throws at us?⁠

We're hosting Building Resilience: Practices for Reducing Stress and Anxiety with @nmyogawellness on 3/2 at 3pm ET / 12pm PT 💮⁠

Exposure to prolonged stress and anxiety has harmful effects on our physical and mental health. Manage and build resilience to stress⁠

So it's important to know how to manage and build resilience to stress.⁠

Wellness coach & Ayurvedic health advisor, Nicole Matthiesen will be leading a discussion on how stress affects the nervous system and what we mean by "resilience."⁠

Walk away with...⁠
👉 an understanding of holistic techniques that help reverse the effects of stress and create resiliency⁠
👉 an exploration of perspectives to help us create a stress-resilient mindset⁠
👉 resilience-building techniques, which we will practice together so you feel comfortable doing them on your own⁠

“Nicole’s knowledge of Ayurveda in addition to her calm and reassuring coaching helped me transition through challenges that I wasn’t able to navigate myself. She helped me find a way to apply the lessons practically to my life so that I could move forward in creating a healthier physical and mental space for myself. I highly recommend her offerings if you are looking for a way to move closer to what you are trying to create for yourself in body-mind health.” - M.W.⁠

I started telling myself this in 2019. It took me working from home and striking out into the entrepreneurial world from 2012-2019 to let myself off the hook when I didn't do what I thought I was "supposed" to be doing.⁠

And, that's ok, too.⁠

It's ok that it took me a long time to accept that I don't like to shower until the evening. It's the end of my day. ⁠

Plus, if I shower in the morning, I won't work out. ⁠

Know yourself. Give yourself grace. You've got this! 💪

Who else wants to feel like this at networking events? 🙋⁠

Honestly, if I don't feel like this at an event, I probably won't come back.⁠

Because you know what? ⁠

I KNOW that networking can be a blast (even if you think you hate networking).⁠

I've seen it, I've felt it, I've lived it.⁠

This speaker line-up is amazing. I cannot wait to watch the presentations, meet some new people, speak (🎉) AND lead a Networking Social (🎉🎉🎉) during the Profitable Membership Summit!⁠

You can grab your FREE ticket via the link in bio (and snag the VIP pass, too, if you want).⁠

Want the details? 👇⁠

As a coach, consultant, or seasoned professional, taking the leap from 1:1 work or small groups to a more scalable program can feel risky, especially when you want a program that operates year-round.⁠

Thoughts like ...⁠

🙋 What if I offer too much and it’s not sustainable?⁠
🙋 How many people does it require to be successful?⁠
🙋 How do I keep my community engaged? ⁠
🙋 What if people don’t want to stay in the group very long? ⁠

… can cause you to put off growing your cozy membership or even start it in the first place.⁠

The Profitable Membership Summit will help you⁠
✅ Design a program to bring reliable MRR into your business⁠
✅ Create a plan to scale your biz without burning out!⁠
✅ Get inspiration to launch your minimum viable membership model⁠
✅ Stay confident & focused on your core value & ditch what’s not important⁠
✅ Gain new ideas to breathe life into your existing program⁠
✅ Find systems to help you take the foot off the gas & enjoy what you’ve created⁠
