Challenges and Barriers and Blocks—Oh, My!! How to Move Gracefully Through Hidden Obstacles to Personal and Business Success

Productivity | July 24, 1-3pm | @IGC, 16 West 23rd St., 4th fl.

You’re smart. Hardworking. You absolutely love what you do and (truth be told!) you’re great at it. Yet for some unknown reason, you are not where you want to be in your life and/or your business. Overwhelm, frustration, fear and worry can keep you stuck one minute and push you into overdrive the next. What if the real secret to meaningful success is beyond “Getting Things Done”? (Seriously…can you fit in even one more thing anyway?)

In this unique, insightful and fun presentation you will discover:

  • The number 1 thing you need to manage all day, every day (even more important than time and money).
  • Why “Positive Thinking” (a good thing!) is simply not enough to move past self-defeating behavior.

RSVP: info@rovo-law.com with ”Dr Is In” in the subject line.

Starting a business takes a leap of faith in any scenario, and working with people you know and trust can make all the difference. As a result, many entrepreneurs choose to work with their friends and family members. While this might seem like the perfect solution, it has the potential to be wrought with problems if you aren’t careful.
