YWSE-SF Advisory Board members Emily Sadigh and Toni Tru bring back the popular need + offer circle from YWSE annual retreats. Spots are limited so register now to reserve your place in the circle! Note: previous experience with YWSE is NOT required, new women are encouraged to attend!
Just ask! In this fun evening workshop you'll discover the power of asking out loud for what you need. Whether you need a short-term consulting gig, a book agent, or a place to stay in Singapore, join this circle to ask for what you want and get resources shared by our supportive YWSE community. You will identify your key need and will likely receive several leads to help you get it -- and will be amazed how your resources can help other YWSE's.
We'll be inspired by the flower -- one of nature's tools for creating mutually beneficial relationships (and the secret to how flowering plants have become the dominant form of plant life on the planet)! Asking for what we need opens us to receiving and giving support, which is how relationships and success grow.
