Sacred Success Circle Meet up, Dublin

The intention behind this meet up is for women in business to come together in a supportive space of possibility & potential.

This is a not straight up networking event and pitching is best left at the door. This event is for conscious women focused on abundant living & the creation of prosperous purposeful businesses, who desire to join with other like minded entrepreneurs & go getters in an atmosphere of Gratitude, Accountability & Celebration.

 

Together each month as a group we;

* Celebrate our wins of the month previous.

* Focus on the upcoming month.

* Open up to higher levels of Success within us.

* Connect with our own business on a deeper level so as participants, we walk away feeling nourished, supported & aligned with the deeper Success of our Business. (The deeper the success, the smoother & more joyful the ride)

* Share & Support each other. We’re all challenged by the same stuff. Living the lives we desire requires expansion beyond the comfort zone & growth. Growing a business in this day and age requires way more authenticity & vulnerability then in previous years. An individual on their own with the right mindset is powerful. A group of individuals joining together for growth and transformation with the right mindset is ULTIMATELY WAY MORE powerful.

Because this is the first one, I will have an outline prepared but I won’t get any materials made up just yet, until I know what works best with this group. So please bring along something to write with & write on.
