Twenty-two years of running a brand design consultancy in Los Angeles has taught me valuable lessons on what it takes to survive and thrive in an incredibly competitive marketplace. In this interactive workshop, I’ll share concepts around limiting beliefs, imposter syndrome, self confidence, fear, happiness, overcoming objections, value based pricing, creating a full value ladder, social media strategies, and anything else you want to throw at me. NOTE: There is an additional fee of $65.00 for this workshop. Duration: 3.5 hours, 8:30–12:00
