The Product of You Information Session

Everyone has a story. And each of us has reason to share it. Whether you’re a business owner, a freelancer, you’re thinking about going back to work, or you have a presence online (that’s everyone, really), personal branding is the way in which you tell your story. It creates an emotional connection to who you are, what your past experience has taught you, and where you would like to go. 

As we explore what's next for us, whether that's starting a new business, considering going back to work, or starting a new independent consultancy, it's imperative that we are thoughtful about our personal brand presence, both online and offline.

Hivery Circle: Thriving in Midlife with Amy Nobile and Trisha Ashworth

May's Hivery Circle celebrates Self-Love. Join us for an evening of inspiration and exploration all about being kind to ourselves and embracing and thriving in midlife!

TrishandAmy.png

We're thrilled to welcome bestselling authors Amy Nobile and Trisha Ashworth (Founders of Ash & Ames) to The Hivery stage as they launch their newest book, Just When You’re Comfortable in your Own Skin, It Starts to Sag: Rewriting the Rules of Midlife (Chronicle Books, April 2018). Amy and Trisha join us to tell their incredible story -- as successful entrepreneurs, authors and change makers.

Amy and Trisha take The Hivery stage to share their secrets for thriving in midlife and to turn the idea of a “midlife crisis” on its head! In an intimate evening, Amy and Trisha will share why this generation of women is the first of its kind to have so many choices. As we enter this next phase of life, eager and ready to spread our wings, they offer us a roadmap to model how to approach the transitions in motherhood, work and relationships we're encountering as we careen into our 40’s and enter the next chapter. Drawing from tremendous research and interviews, Amy and Trisha share how they've been able to pinpoint why midlife is so challenging for this generation, and reassure us that not only are we on the right track, but the best years are still to come. 

This Tuesday evening happy hour is the perfect way to celebrate #womendoingcoolstuff. Guests will enjoy a tasting of local wines from True Myth Winery and lite bites.

Limited signed copies of Just When You're Comfortable in Your Own Skin, It Starts to Sag:
Rewriting the Rules of Midlife
will be available for purchase at the end of the evening.

Don’t hesitate to come alone and mingle with your Hivery community or feel free to bring a friend.

ALL ARE WELCOME at this beautiful celebration!

Please bring your laptop if you prefer to type your letter, or a notebook or journal if you prefer to write by hand.

Dr. Engeln will be available to sign copies of her book, Beauty Sick: How the Cultural Obsession with Appearance Hurts Girls and Women. Please plan to purchase the book in advance at your favorite local bookseller or online. 

NOTE: Just before and after, you are invited to spread out or find a nook in The Hivery to work on whatever you'd like. Work on a project, to-do lists, journaling, etc! Community Members get a 2-hour pass after the Discovery Circle. Please ask the Community Concierge at reception for access. The time is yours!

Faith Carria teaches women how the miracle of their sexuality and spirituality can fuel all the beautiful changes this planet needs. Faith developed a severe chronic vulvar pain disorder as a young woman and was told there was nothing she could do about it. That experience set her on an epic quest, leading her to study healing traditions from around the world and work as a massage therapist, yoga teacher, energy healer, and sex coach. Raised in a family where sex was strictly taboo, she has deep love for all the women (and men!) transforming their hurts into healing.

Entrepreneur's Circle with Laura Eberly, YWCA

EntrepreneurCircle_square.jpg

Join us for our casual and conversational Entrepreneur's Circle at The Hivery! This month, we welcome Laura Eberly, Director of Social Change at YWCA San Francisco + Marin, to lead our circle. 

This is another way to make sure you're not going at the business of building a business on your own, but rather with the trusted circle of The Hivery community. 

Laura joins us for an engaging discussion about creating environments where people can bring their unique experiences and strengths to the table, without minimizing core aspects of their identity or their culture – leading to more equitable environments and greater workplace satisfaction. 

Many of us have very narrow comfort zones when it comes to conversations about race, and when we get out of our comfort zones we panic. The YWCA aims to help people find the growth zone in between. The YWCA's Inclusion Inventory uses proven tools to help people have a different conversation about identity, inclusion, and equity that focuses on where we realistically are and what it would take to really change. From personal to structural work, we all have things to learn and changes to make to build the just workplaces, organizations, and communities we need.

Key highlights and takeaways:

  • New language for thinking about intercultural competency
  • A greater comfort speaking about diversity/inclusion/equity
  • Exercises to bring back to other groups and organizations who need guidance for these conversations

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. This is a BYO brown-bag lunch discussion. All are welcome!

What's Next: Four-Week Evening Workshop Series

WhatsNextPromo_KTS_IMG_103 copy.jpg

Explore positive change in your life! Whether you want to go back to work, back to school, start a business, or volunteer in a personally meaningful way, The Hivery’s What's Next workshop will help you to identify possibilities that match who you are, what you are naturally good at, and what excites you.

This four-week workshop series is especially beneficial for women who crave being part of a supportive group of like-minded women that encourage ideas, next steps and action.

Individually and as a group, you will:

  • Learn how to recognize patterns that hold you back and identify threads that point to your purposeful work
  • Create new habits that support change
  • Get unstuck and motivated to get moving again
  • Deepen your understanding of who you are and what makes you tick

Course coaches, Laura Riordan, Ph.D. and Linda Lesem, M.S., use their extensive experience in coaching, psychology, and career counseling to guide participants.  All What’s Next participants will receive a What’s Next Toolkit chock-full of practical actions to support healthy change. 

WHAT IS REQUIRED FROM WHAT’S NEXT PARTICIPANTS?

You don’t need to know what you want...it’s perfectly okay if you don’t. Our only expectation is that you show up fully and that you are ready and willing to explore positive change in your life!


//PROGRAM TAKEAWAYS

GET UNSTUCK

First, you will need to understand why you are stuck. We will explain the myriad of environmental blocks, cultural themes and brain biases that keep you from moving forward. You will find out how to change your mindset, let go of expectations and clear away roadblocks.

OWN YOUR STRENGTHS + VALUES 

We begin with introductions, intentions and a variety of self-assessment explorations including the Myers Briggs (a Personality Typology Inventory).  Additionally, we will explore Interests through the Holland Code, Character Strengths, Skills, Values and a variety of creative exercises that will help you to brainstorm possibilities that are complementary to your true nature.

DESIGN A PLAN FOR CHANGE

We work together to intentionally create space for What’s Next by identifying what works and what no longer serves you.  You will life-design both your physical environment and relationships, to support your new chapter. This is a key component to organizing your life to get “unstuck” and make actual change.  We will guide you towards identifying the intersection of your core values, interests, strengths and skills.  This is the intersection where “good fit” possibilities reside.   

CREATE AN ACTION PLAN

We create actions and accountability around "trying things on."  Your Hivery What’s Next group will be there to help you investigate, network and find out if new action paths are a match with who you are and what you want to do. Finally, we give you practical tools and a variety of Positive Psychology techniques to create your own custom recipe for change.

What’s Next Coaches: Linda Lesem, M.S., and Laura Riordan, Ph.D. 

Linda Lesem, M.S. is a trained therapist, career counselor and life coach, specializing in Positive Psychology, (the Science of Happiness). She works individually with clients in her own practice, and also facilitates groups for clients, who are yearning to create positive change in their lives! Linda created Moms In Transition, a workshop for Moms who are ready to take their next step, and are asking themselves…"What is next for me?"  This is a great way for a small group of women to be together, as they "get back in touch with who they are", and "what they want" and then start the process of creating a plan for themselves, whether that be re-entering the paid working world, going back to school or volunteering in personally meaningful ways. Learn more about Linda here
 

Laura Riordan, Ph.D. is a holistic life coach who helps her clients find balance and meaningful success. With a Ph.D. in Transpersonal Psychology and 20 years in the mind and body wellness industry, she brings wisdom, clarity and swiftness to her coaching practice. Laura began her career as the head of client services for retreat style resorts and spas, helping people center and refocus themselves while escaping the daily challenges of modern life. While overseeing spa programs and working as a massage therapist, she discovered that retreats were great at providing short-term relief, but they could not offer the kind of long-standing change that so many people needed.

Laura’s coaching practice evolved from the understanding that people need a guide to help identify their meaningful work, ground aha moments and give accountability and infrastructure to make lasting changes. Laura leverages her Ph.D. to help her clients find bigger versions of themselves and her strategic and practical skills to create a road map to get there. Learn more about Laura here.


WHAT’S NEXT PARTICIPANT TESTIMONIALS:

"I want to thank you both again for the last four wonderful weeks of "What's Next?"  The class exceeded all my expectations and was truly insightful.  I appreciate your thoughtful approach and stimulating content.  It is such a pleasure to have discovered The Hivery and to have spent time with inspiring, courageous women in class this past month...I did not want the class to end!"
-Sheryl Ott
"I don't have words to describe how valuable I found today's session to be, and how excited I am for the 3 remaining sessions we have.  Over the 25 years I've been in the working world, I have worked with a number of career coaches, attended multiple workshops, and purchased countless career books (I just dusted off "Do What You Are" and "The Wisdom of the Enneagram" from my bookshelf).  Today's session produced more "aha" moments for me than any I can remember from years past, and we are just at the beginning."
-Anonymous
"I met a friend for lunch who asked me about the workshop and I was happy to tell her the two top take-aways for me were: (1) understanding all the aspects of my life and how they fit together (2) how to structure my schedule in a way that compartmentalizes all the pieces.  SO MUCH BETTER."
-Monique Johnson
"While I know I have the knowledge, the courage and the intelligence it is all still quite a scary process... I am putting my best foot forward and filing my life with lots of positive support and encouragement.  I am so thankful to have found the combination of the two of you to help me along this path!"
-Karen Polite Sullivan

"Participating in What's Next has provided me with an important opportunity to re-visit self inventory work I completed previously, and then to use that work to take significant, concrete steps towards breathing life into my teen coaching practice. I loved learning from Laura and Linda, as well as from the other participants. Through the five weeks of the workshop, I received a number of helpful suggestions which will help tremendously as I move forward. And finally, participating in What's Next gave me space to formulate important questions and explore solutions."

-Jennifer Labovich

"This class was lead by very professional, excellent life coaches! The group of women were supportive, loving and kind, so much so, that it allowed all of us to open our hearts and feel safe asking for help and supporting each other. I loved all the honesty and beautiful stories we shared and the friendships made...hopefully for a long time!"

-Suzanne Roth-Paul

"I was stuck thinking that earning money for my work was going to be difficult after years of volunteer work. This workshop has been extremely helpful in learning more about myself, my interests and possible directions I can take. Now I am networking and feel optimistic and re-charged. Thank you Laura and Linda!"

-Alessandra Gallo

Megan’s process also ensures your idea is well thought out, and answers many of those lingering questions you might still have.

This workshop is ideal for you wherever you are in your journey, as long as you have an idea to pursue! You can be a new business owner, starting a new passion project or a seasoned veteran ready to launch your newest idea, this workshop will help make it happen.

Discovery Circle with Nicole Gnutzman

Every month, on the last Friday of the month, we hold our Discovery Circle. This month, we welcome Hivery member Nicole Gnutzman to lead our circle. 

DiscoveryCircle_Square.jpg

The Discovery Circle is a facilitated group session to share motivation, ideas, coaching, mentorship, and community. 

In this Discovery Circle, Nicole will share and explore practices and tools for resourcing ourselves, so we can feel safe taking some of our protective armor off and, in the spirit of Brene Brown, allow ourselves to be vulnerable, heal and become whole, revealing our inner luminosity and lightness of spirit.

When we meet someone who is whole, we see and experience a whole person; they have a transparency, an authenticity, an integrity, an inner luminosity that is expressed through them. 

To be whole means to be aligned and congruent in thought, word, action and energy and this requires letting go of our protective armor and masks. Wholeness is embodiment. It doesn't mean being perfect; it means being real and vulnerable and strong and loving all at the same time. Just like Brene Brown says! It is deep and yet has a light and lightness to it. The most whole and luminous beings I know are wise, have a twinkle in their eye and laugh a lot. They found a way to take off a few layers to shine.

When we are whole, we live an abundant life because we have resourced our inner world and experience a sense of inner abundance; we flow with life because we have surrendered our need for control and are in the flow; we are clear and inspired because we have risen above and can see our lives with perspective and absolute clarity; we are a creatively transformative force because we have lived and learned through pain, failure and grief. We glow, girlfriend!

Circle highlights and takeaways include:

  • Explore what it means, looks like and feels to be whole and luminous.
  • Discover inner resource states that you can access to support a more whole and luminous you. 
  • Learn why and the ways in which we armor ourselves and how it hurts us and others in ways we don't even know.

NOTE: Just before and after, you are invited to spread out or find a nook in The Hivery to work on whatever you'd like. Work on a project, to-do lists, journaling, etc! Community Members get a 2-hour pass after the Discovery Circle. Please ask the Community Concierge at reception for access. The time is yours!

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. All are welcome!

Hivery Circle: Your Story is Your Power with Elle Luna and Susie Herrick

We are thrilled to welcome Elle Luna, the incredible bestselling author of The Crossroads of Should and Must, and Susie Herrick, acclaimed psychotherapist and author of Aphrodite Emerges, in an evening of inspiration and exploration all about courage, the feminine voice, and compassion as they launch their newest book -- YOUR STORY IS YOUR POWER: Free Your Feminine Voice. With humor, measured outrage, proven psychology, and a hopeful scenario for the future, this book empowers women to seek out deep psychological truths - and how to use those truths to move forward to living a more confident, unapologetic life, and creating a brighter tomorrow for all.  

This Tuesday evening happy hour sponsored by our friends at Athleta is the perfect way to celebrate #womendoingcoolstuff. Guests will enjoy a tasting of local wines from Brooks Note Winery and lite bites.

Elle and Susie will take The Hivery stage in conversation with Grace Kraaijvanger, Founder of The Hivery, to address the importance of women’s voices, women’s intelligence, women’s compassion, and women’s courage. As we explore the power of story, you will learn that in the heart of your story, you will find you – your voice, your power, and your truth.  

Limited signed copies of YOUR STORY IS YOUR POWER: Free Your Feminine Voice will be available for purchase for $17.95 at the end of the evening.

Don’t hesitate to come alone and mingle with your Hivery community or feel free to bring a friend.
