Talk 1: Reducing the Stress of the College Decision-Making Process

Looking BEYOND College BEFORE College:

  • It seems that all academic roads lead to college entrance. It can start as early as kindergarten. We will look at what contributes to the unintentional stressors placed on parents and children by society, the education system and the media.

  • This talk will give parents tools to open up discussions with their child about their hopes, dreams and future with a focus on careers and lifestyle. 

  • We will also discuss how parents/grandparents/guardians can ask their student empowering questions about how they specifically plan to achieved to their desired future and what education plan they need to put in place to achieve their goals. 

Talk 2: Whose Life Are You Living? How to Give Yourself Permission to Live Your Life

  • This talk or workshop walks the audience through the 7 stages of the Permission Journey, a concept outlined in Priya's book "Give Yourself Permission to Live your Life."

  • Audience members and participants will come out with a deeper understanding of what is holding them back at work or in their personal lives, how to clear out any limiting beliefs and quietly start to allow themselves to live their life without worrying about what others think. 

  • This talk or workshop is beneficial in the work (professional development), non-profit and personal development settings. 

Talk 3: Identifying Your Core Values and How to Use Them to Make the Important Decisions

  • Core Values as a Road Map


A vision board is used often in life coaching as a tool to articulate and understand goals or dreams. Having a clear focus for your future makes achieving that lifestyle more attainable. Many people create Vision Boards to attract money or material goods, but I think it can go further than that. 

I have used this technique with many of my Career Coaching clients as they outline their 5- or 10-year plan. They are often looking to choose a college, start a business, look at a new job/career or transition into retirement. In the corporate arena Vision Boards can solidify your or your teams' ideas around a project, concept or new offering. It's a great team building exercise as it also fosters individual contribution. 

The key is to understand what you are trying to answer for yourself - BEFORE you start your board. It is not an arts and craft project or just a collection of pretty pictures. 

Past areas of focus have included

  • Do you want to start a business? Find direction by creating a vision board.”
  • Do you feel stuck about what to do next in life? Use a vision board to get clarity.
  • Planning your Career. Create a Vision Board to show your path.
  • Now what? Life after Retirement. Create a Vision Board to guide you.
  • Vision Board Workshop to Gain Professional and Personal Clarity.
  • Our New Mission. How do we all get on the same page ? 

Materials including the boards, glue and scissors will be provided. We would have some magazines, but participants would be required to bring their own that pertain to their own ideas and work. They will also be encouraged to share these magazines once they have collected the images they want to use. A workshop should last no less than 3 hours.
