What would you do for your business or career if money was not a concern? If you had all of the funding that you needed, would you hire, advertise more, create a subsidiary or something else?

There is a saying ” act as-if”. What that suggests is to visualize that the obstacles which are holding you back are gone. You have resources, money, time, and the team to make your dream happen.

Once you can visualize that and feel the relief, you can then go take action. You can make the business development calls, create time to strategize, take training classes and more happen,

One action that you can take is to get involved with us. Volunteer on a committee and attend our events (the annual crab feast is almost here!), Send your news or upcoming events to us so we can help you to promote. Connect with us, and you will then take a step toward taking action.

We all hope that you are having a great summer and are enjoying the concert series in Owings Mills and Reisterstown- we are! Hope to see you soon!

Remember- Act As-If!

Don’t Wait to Register! Early Bird Pricing ends Next Week!
