The 5 Keys To Your Most Successful Year Yet! – Dr. Christi Hegstad, Morning Training Session

Have you reached all of your goals with purpose and ease this year? Do you start each day with clarity, focus, and a results-oriented action plan? Do you have plenty of time to dream, strategize, focus on what matters most – and have fun along the way?

If you cannot answer these questions with a resounding YES, now – just before a brand new year ripe with possibility – is the perfect time to shift into a smoother, better way of operating. During this powerful workshop, Dr. Christi Hegstad will walk you through the 5 keys that have contributed to her success over the past 15+ years as an award-winning business owner, community volunteer, and mom of three. You will leave this session with:

• Proven strategies and practical tools to help you dream big and actually bring those dreams to fruition;
• A clear definition of success and the action plan to achieve it;
• Awareness of the top barriers, often sneaky ones, holding you back and how to move beyond them;
• The two critical factors to run your days (so they don’t run you!);
• Real-life examples – some from within the room – to inspire, motivate, and help you redefine what’s possible.

In addition to sharing her own experiences and lessons learned, Dr. Hegstad will offer best practices, evidence-based principles, and exceptional case studies to expand your sense of possibility. You can expect to leave this session clear, focused, uplifted, and equipped with the tools to make 2019 your most successful year yet!
