Are you on the path to success with your writing? If you’re working hard the answer is: YES.
ACFW Colorado Springs meets the first Saturday of the month from 10 AM to noon at the First Evangelical Free Church on 30th Street in Colorado Springs.
MARK YOUR CALENDERS!
September 6th 10 AM to noon
Speaker: Sonia Meeter (Life Coach)
The Resilient Writer
Are you finding it difficult to be disciplined in setting aside time for writing? Does constructive criticism or flat out rejection of your work feel like a personal attack? Are you struggling to find purpose and balance in your life?
If this sounds familiar, what you need is a little more resilience – the ability to adapt and persevere when life delivers adversities! In this workshop, we will discuss the challenges common to writers – minor irritations and major setback, and how to approach them in a way that helps you to overcome and rest in your purpose. Resilience enables you to achieve excellence in your writing and to have deep heart to heart connections with others that enable you to fully live the life you were created to live.
BIO: Sonia Meeter is a certified social emotional intelligence coach. Social emotional intelligence (EQ) is the single largest determination of a person’s success but is something that is rarely addressed in business planning and development.
Sonia helps you increase your EQ and overcome limiting beliefs to reach your full potential using her “Whole Person at WorkTM System,” an integrative approach which incorporates your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual capacities to develop a plan to live the life you were called to live.
Sonia is living her purpose in Colorado Springs with her husband and two teenage daughters.
