Thursday, May 14th, 2015 – Is Consulting a Lifestyle Business?

Pivotal Points of Change (TM): A workshop to identify the next right expedient action to move you toward your ideal consulting practice.

Expedient actions are ones that allow your goals to unfold with the least amount of effort, by doing something different, differently.

A quickly moving upbeat experience, within a self-reflective yet socially supportive context, the Pivotal Points of Change workshop is offered by Change Consultant and VCN member, Dr. Carolyn Edwards Basiliere.
