    This is not a typical vision board workshop where you think about all of the money and material things that you want to acquire in life.

    Materials Needed:

    You can use your computer skills to create a vision board, or use your offline creativity to create an actual board. Use what you already have at home. Your vision board can be made on printer paper, notebook paper, card stock, poster board, a bulletin board or even fabric. Have your favorite pens/markers/art supplies/tape/glue, etc. available to assemble your vision board. We'll be asking participants to take photos and share their own creations. 

    Access Information:

    We'll be meeting via the ZOOM Webinar Platform. This is free software that you can access easily from your smartphone, computer or tablet. Access information will be sent via email with your handouts a day or two prior to our meeting.

    Her best-selling book, “How Can I Help - Your Go-to Guide for Helping Loved Ones through Life’s Difficulties”, was written to help people become their best by reaching out beyond their fears and helping those they love and care about in life.

    A self-proclaimed personal development junkie, Sherrie loves sharing with audiences what she has learned about her journey through grief, breaking through the fears, excuses, and lies we tell ourselves that keep us from creating the kind of life we’ve always dreamed of living.
