 Complete Life Inventory – Identify How Awesome You Already Are

Parallel Session

This workshop shows you where you truly are. It shows you that you are at Basecamp for Everest, and you are not starting from scratch at sea level. You have so many skills, characteristics, connections, experiences, accomplishments, and healthy ways of being that it’s ridiculous that you think it’ll be hard to get your “Everest,” whatever that is for you at this time. By attending this workshop you’ll have a complete life inventory that you can use for a resume, bio, a dating profile, helpful connections, and (most importantly) feeling amazing about who you are as a person. Yes, with this workshop you will feel excited and empowered to take the steps forward in your life’s journey to be fulfilled and fueled by that amazing Joy, Ease, and Love, instead of that awful FOG (Fear, Obligation, and Guilt).

It’s great for people who:

  • Don’t know if they have what it takes to even attempt their dreams.
  • Are only aware of their accomplishments in certain areas of their life (like career) but don’t know that there’s more to who they are.
  • Want to create an amazing resume, bio, dating profile, etc.
  • Long to feel amazing by seeing themselves completely.
  • Feel like they have no one to assist them on their journey.

Keynote Address

Banish Burnout: Move from Stress to Success™


It has been well-documented that burnout is plaguing the American workforce to the tune of $2 trillion annually, according to Business Insider. In a recent Gallup report Employee Burnout: Causes and Cures, “employee burnout is a symptom of modern workplaces that are increasingly fast-paced, complex and demanding.”

The World Health Organization has recognized burnout as an illness, “an occupational syndrome caused by chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed.”

The impact of all this stress is reduced retention, lower productivity, disengaged workers, and increased absenteeism.

For all these reasons, I developed the Banish Burnout program in order to help people at work develop the skills to manage their stress by changing their behavior. Of course, reacting to stressors is a normal human reaction, but often stressed out workers tend to overreact and stay that way for too long. It is the goal of this program to teach people how to interrupt their stressful thoughts and feelings and replace them with more rational behavior.

Learning outcomes:

  • Recognize signs of burnout so you can prevent it.
  • Learn to interrupt negative thoughts and replace them with positive messages.
  • Set healthy boundaries at work. Learn how to say no without saying no.
