Sep 10   Lunch and Learn Series - To Do Or Not To Do

Many women face an universal dilemma … knowing what to do or what not to do!

It is not easy to discern what to focus on because we are caregivers, wives, sisters, mothers, entrepreneurs, employees, students, community leaders, nurturers, givers, aunts, friends and the list goes on and on!

No wonder there is confusion but what if you had a system in place that will help you sort through what matters most and help you keep focused … allowing you to know just exactly what to do!!

Tabby Quintana has discovered and re-interpreted a system for women that will help them identity what really matters in their life … as a whole and beautifully crafted woman.

The Lunch and Learn Series is a monthly workshop conducted by local business experts, Chamber board members and associates of our Chamber partners. The workshops feature a wide variety of topics that are helpful for anyone involved with a business, from owners and managers to entry-level employees.

Held monthly attendees will hear about specific topics of interest like:  finance, customer service, social media and many more areas of interest.  As the topics and presenters are set information on the presentation will be loaded onto the website.
