Join Us at the next Return to Work You Love Conference

Comment from workshop attendee: “Hi, Kristy: I loved your presentation at the Connect•Work•Thrive Conference yesterday. I made a great choice in attending your session! Your tips have been immediately helpful to me.  Since I’m more naturally an observer than a networker, I had to change my entire mindset about networking to one of helping people versus trying to get something beneficial for myself. A woman putting herself first is off-putting enough, as you well know 🙂 With that mind-shift accomplished, I feel better about the entire process: more joy, less dread. I will look for you on LinkedIn to make a connection as well. – Kelly P.”
