Your Best Year Yet! 2019 Personal Plan Activation | LA Workshop

January 30, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST


Start 2019 off with a BANG!

Join us at The Unique Space for our Personal Plan Activation Workshop with Creative Successful Entrepreneurs!

Hey, Creatives! Think about how often you’ve set a goal or spent hours to learn a new skill or technology, only to run up against a mysterious resistance you can’t quite seem to shake. You put in hours of time, lots of effort, and piles of money (or all three)…only to lose steam, watch books gather dust on the shelf, and be in the same place you were when you started.

Join our masterclass to take your New Year’s resolutions and actually make them a reality. You’ll see new opportunities and clear away the confusion that has kept you from understanding the exact NEXT BEST STEPS.
