little monetary investment) on your part. Topics include

preparing media kits, securing on-air and print interviews,
working with media, and following up.

The man in the street does not know a star in the sky, the
solstice he does not observe; the equinox he knows as little; and

mind.”                                Ralph Waldo Emerson

slow positioning of the evening planets. We’ll have an

New! Spring Clean Your Life-A Program for all
Seasons
Do you want to dream of the life you want or do you want to
live the life of your dreams? THE DECISION IS YOURS!
How often do you fantasize about the life you always wanted
for yourself, but never seem to enjoy? Does the “grass look
greener on the other side?” Do you frequently wonder “what
if this had happened?” If you answered “yes,” then you need
to make time this spring to attend this life-altering seminar.
We are, for the most part, conductors of our own life’s
symphony, choreographers of our life’s dance, authors of our
own life’s story line. But how do we begin living the life we
want and , one we begin, how do we keep on living it through
stress, chaos, loss, and setbacks? We need to incorporate
awareness, acknowledgement and action into out daily lives.
The seminar serves as a map to the future. Topics covered
include habit formation, cognitive theory of change,
mindfulness, acceptance, responsibility and implementation.
The seminar concludes with a guided visualization meditation.
