Parenting for the Brave New World Mini Summit
We are all walking into a new year with baggage – some of it is collective, some of it unique to the individual… . But none of us escaped the radical journey that was 2020.
The Parenting for a Brave New World summit is designed to put you IN CHARGE of creating the world and the life that you want. Yes, there are things that are out of our control, and YES we CAN live in an intentional way and change the experiences we are having.
I have zeroed in on five areas of focus. Five areas that are the most POTENT areas for growth and relationship. And five guests that deliver the tools all parents need to be in the CREATION of the Brave New World that includes us all:
Navigating the changing and challenging school model
Adolescent mental health in times of uncertainty
Raising the social justice advocates we need
Modeling and embracing financial literacy during difficult times
Tending to our parenting soul
This summit will be releasing February 1st, but you can sign up for the summit right now for an early bird special of just $29!! This includes the 5 interviews and a BONUS course.
I am also offering a NEW feature to the summit, a VIP offer. VIP’s get a swag bag (while supplies last & U.S only), a summit workbook, and post summit live classes with the speakers.
