Make Business Personal: Align Your Work to Build Greater Purpose in Your Life

Milwaukee Public Library - Mitchell Street Branch 906 W Historic Mitchell St, Milwaukee, WI, United States

Kiley Peters and Amanda Nowak share methods of gaining insight into your identity and personal goals. Improve time management skills and learn about other ways to make actionable steps toward the life you want to build for yourself.

So often we go about our days without asking if we’re operating with intention or not. If the work we’re doing is supporting the life we want or not. Until now.

In this insightful presentation, international award-winning, seven-figure serial entrepreneurs, Kiley Peters and Amanda Nowak, take attendees on a transformational journey. They share The D&A of Success framework, a framework designed specifically for women entrepreneurs to help them build their businesses in alignment with their personal definition of success. So often we start businesses because we have a skill we hope someone will pay us to do and before long we’re either tapped out and at capacity trading time for money or managing a team of people - which most people don’t want to do. The D&A of Success is the answer to building the business that will help you build the life you want and show you how to leverage your business to get you there. We’ll provide opportunities for reflection and personal discovery in the name of defining success for each attendee.

What would your life look like if your work truly aligned with and supported your personal goals and values? Join us to discover how to make it happen!
