Join Coast Women in Business on Thursday, February 13, 2020 as local clinical hypnotherapist and author Alena Guest talks about loving yourself and your business.

Loving yourself is often confused with selfishness, conceit, arrogance, and even narcissism. On the contrary – if you’re letting anyone take advantage of you or you’re not sticking up for yourself, if you’re staying in a relationship or a job that’s bad for you, if you’re eating poorly, drinking too much, or indulging in anything else that’s bad for you – then you need to attend this presentation on love.

Alena will provide a prescription for greater self-confidence and self-esteem. She’ll offer 30 ways to practice loving yourself that she’s adopted as a hypnotherapist as well as tools gathered from psychological research and pundits like Oprah Winfrey.

Especially as business owners, we all need to be centered in our life’s purpose and values, have the expectation that we’ll get fulfillment through our efforts and know that believing in ourselves is the means to grow in purpose and meaning, as human beings. The best way I know of to foster physical, psychological, and spiritual growth is self-love.

Complimentary tea and coffee donated by Thanksgiving Coffee PLUS delicious treats from a local bakery.

SPECIAL: Books will be available for purchase, and Alena will be signing after her presentation – make sure you get your copy!

Join us at our meeting on February 13, 2020 to give a valentine to yourself!
