We humans have an innate, deep need for connection with each other. It can feel great when we connect but if not, it can lead to loneliness.  Inauthenticity and emotional availability are just a few of the ways people behave that can reflect their challenges in this area.  The reality is it can be hard to connect with others because it’s scary to open up and be real and vulnerable.  

There are many reasons why this a challenge, often stemming from family of origin issues but the important thing is to recognize this as a problem and commit to doing something about it.  Doing so will not only can improve your emotional health but your relationships.

That’s why I’m inviting you to join Dr. Rick Hanson and Dr. Daniel Ellenberg for The Courage to Connect : a live online workshop that will help you be more self-accepting and confident, express yourself more fully, get more of what you need from others, and have more satisfying friendships and intimate relationships. 

Join them on March 26 and 27th to learn how to:

  • Develop greater self-compassion

  • Release old habits of defensiveness and contraction

  • Learn the skills that foster courageous conversations

  • Explore the sweet spot that combines strength and vulnerability

Own Your Future!

We have been training representatives in the finance industry for 10 years.

We are expanding due to the greatly increased need for what we do. 

To be clear we are  independent contractors. This means we work on our own time. We are not looking for hourly employees, but people who are open to working for themselves - either part time, or advancing to full time.

Our main focus is helping families plan for the future like retiring sooner, getting out of debt, protecting their family via income protection, investments, and more.

We don’t require any financial degrees or experience although both are welcome. We offer PAID training and PAID licensing for the right person.

Looking for those with good people skills and a heart for helping others! Schedule extremely flexible. Everything can be done remotely.

Presentations/Interviews are conducted via Zoom (zoom.us), so computer and internet connection is required.

Must be 18+ years old, have a clean background, & be willing to get licensed with the state as well. Does this sound like something you would be open to hearing more about?
