January Chapter Meeting

Why would anyone hate potential? Because potential is the enemy of performance. Each day we wake up with the possibility of achieving something. In Life Lessons from an NFL Player, LWHRA's January Chapter Meeting, speaker Jedidiah Collins makes it his mission to eliminate that possibility and make it a reality. This workshop will empower attendees with the principles and behaviors of the best in the world!

Attendees will develop the following skills:

  • How to have the mindset of a Pro
  • How to use the #1 skill of success
  • How to see the biggest difference between college and professional level
  • How to enjoy the process more

Registration closes at noon on Friday, January 10.

Special Offer for January: All non-members can bring a guest for only $25! Use the discount code JANGUEST when checking out to receive this limited time offer.

This year at the 2020 LWHRA Symposium, you can truly focus on yourself—you’ll be learning and developing your professional knowledge base and network, and you can also get in some relaxation while you’re at it. The Dreamclinic will be onsite during Symposium giving free 10-minute chair massages between 10:00 AM and 3:30 PM.

Dreamclinic is a Seattle-based business focusing on making health and well-being more accessible to busy people. They offer highly skilled massage professionals and provide a 7-day-a-week schedule and have four different locations throughout the greater Seattle area.

Register for Symposium today and look forward to treating yourself to a little much-needed relaxation.
