Centre for Spirituality at Work: Mentors Circle

The Centre for Spirituality at Work invites you to: THE MENTORS CIRCLE with ELIZABETH VERWEY
3 Mondays, Oct. 1, Nov. 5, and Dec. 3 2007 (Earlybird fee: Mon. Sept. 24)
At the Toronto Grace, near Yonge & Bloor, Toronto
It can be lonely out there ....  With other self-employed professionals, freelancers and entrepreneurs, determine and act on the next step to strengthen or build your business.  Identify what's important now, and set your own concrete monthly goals.  At each of the 3 monthly gatherings you will learn about important practices for being successfully self-employed, as well as spend time brainstorming, reviewing your goals, and problem solving.  Support other group members and be encouraged both during and between meetings, learning hands on techniques to offer one another caring pressure with humour.  And be open to building a larger ongoing community for yourself and your business, looking for possibilities to mentor and be mentored.

ELIZABETH VERWEY, www.OfficeMentors.com, is a seasoned entrepreneur with 20 years of award-winning, successful self-employment.  Warm and dynamic, now she helps other self-employed people manage their time and space more effectively to balance the two so theres more time to play! Elizabeth is an active member of C.A.P.S. (Canadian Assn of Professional Speakers), and is on Enterprise Toronto's SOHO (Small Office/Home Office) Advisory Committee. Reach Elizabeth at Elizabeth@OfficeMentors.com.
