The Price is Right, Right? A Pricing Workshop

The Price is Right, Right? A Pricing Workshop

Too often business owners (especially women) use price as their greatest market differentiator, setting themselves up for a cycle of short changing their value, working harder for less, not getting the ideal clients, and setting the stage for early burnout. This workshop combines a little mindset with a lot of strategy and practical tools on how to determine your pricing strategy, how to charge what you are worth and stop underselling your services.

This workshop is best for those working as service providers and will be from 11:30-1PM on Friday May 10th at The Broad. Feel free to bring a lunch - coffee and seltzer will be provided. This event is free for Broads and is $30 for guests - day pass included for work before or after the workshop!

Lawyer, Entrepreneur, and Coach, Stinson Mundy, will be your guide through the rough waters of charging your true value!

  • Do you not know how to find clarity around this prevalent life area because of your past experiences conflicting with what you learned sex should be?

  • Are you desiring to feel more at peace and open with your sex life, but feel alone in your experiences, and are you curious to know more about what sex is really like for other womxn?

Come have the safe space to share openly, be heard, and listen to others experiences about sexuality in a safe, objective environment that will leave you feel more connected and understood from friendly setting a community of womxn.

No More Burnout: Restore the Spark in Your Career and Relationships

No More Burnout: Restore the Spark in Your Career and Relationships

Feeling like you’ve lost your spark in your job or in your relationships? Do you feel like your job is sucking the life out of you? Do you love your partner but find yourself getting resentful at him or her, constantly? Does your job or your partner not “spark joy” anymore in you? Join us to learn from Purpose & Relationship Coach, Colleen Coles, and Burnout Coach, Carolina DeWell, methods and tools to restore the spark in your career and relationships. In this 2-hour workshop, you will:

  • Learn how to spot the warning signs of burnout in your work and relationships so that you can take steps to prevent it.

  • Establish healthy boundaries in your relationships so you can have more time for what sparks joy in you, without feeling guilty that you’re not showing up for your family or that you'll be getting behind at work.

  • Use the simple, yet powerful ACT Matrix to discover what you need to do to ensure you keep crushing it at work and at home so that you can avoid burnout and live your best spark-filled life! 

This workshop is free for Broads and $10 for guests!

Colleen Coles is a Purpose Alignment Coach who helps women feeling stuck in their relationships, purpose, and intuitive power access their authenticity and connect to their Authenticity to better serve others in their purposeful career and in meaningful relationships. She specializes in helping women unlock the root of codependent behavior (needing others to be happy before you can be happy; or the inability to leave an unhealthy relationship) as well as having clarity in what’s stopping them from knowing their true purpose. Colleen has been doing this work for 4 years, and is a Certified Life Coach through the Divine Living Academy and is a Level 2 graduate from Gabrielle Bernstein's Spirit Junkie Masterclass.

Carolina DeWell is a Burnout Coach who helps high-achieving women who are burnt out gain the clarity and confidence to restore the spark in their work and lives so they can live a life of meaning and purpose. Carolina’s helps her clients by using approaches and tools that engage the mind, body and soul so that clients reconnect with their whole, authentic self and their inner compass, which always points them in the right direction. Carolina has been coaching burnout clients for 2 years, and was trained in Martha Beck’s Life Coaching program. She also spent 15 years in Human Resources in several Fortune 500 companies where she coached leaders and employees to become the best leaders they could be.

Tate's: SVA Backstage Pass

Time for another field trip to our friends at Startup Virginia!

All Broads are invited to the next BACKSTAGE PASS - use our code for free entry and email Ali with any Qs.

**PLEASE NOTE** We are limited to 10 Broad tickets for this event and it will sell out, please only claim a ticket if you will be able to attend and please release your ticket through Eventbrite in the event that you are unable to attend last minute.

---

This month, Startup Virginia is thrilled to welcome Kathleen King, the woman behind Tate's Bake Shop. Founded in 2000 when she was 40 years old, Tate's was sold last June to the maker of Oreo and Chips Ahoy, for $500 million. But Kathleen's business journey wasn't easy, and she credits the brand's success to losing the first bakeshop she founded. Kathleen will share how early epic failures drove her to epic success — you won't want to miss it.

This month's conversation is facilitated by Richard Coughlan, Associate Professor of Management at the University of Richmond's Robins School of Business, and creator/host of “C-Suite Conversations,” a series of unscripted, on-stage interviews conducted live in front of audiences drawn from the business and campus communities.

Hors d'oeuvres and beverages will be provided.

Soulful Time Management: Bringing Your Vision (Back) to Life

The quality and substance of our lives is determined by the choices we make every day about how we invest our most fundamental resources — our time, energy, and attention. But by this time of year, many of us have long abandoned the good intentions we set in January. This workshop is an opportunity to give your goals for 2019 a little "spring cleaning" (or set some if you never did) — and then learn 10 strategies for reaching those goals and bringing your vision to life. By focusing on managing yourself and not just your time and tasks, these strategies sidestep the common reasons why people abandon or fall short of their goals. This workshop is led by Elaine Kiziah, Ph.D - Coach, Teacher, Facilitator and Creator of See Change Studio.

This lunchtime workshop is free for Broads and $30 for guests - it includes beverages but no food so BYO lunch!
