    If you own a business or manage employees then you are likely struggling with the questions that we are all hearing about these days:

    • Is it legal to require employees to be tested or vaccinated?
    • Should there be a mask mandate in the office?
    • Do employees get paid for COVID leave for themselves or family members?
    • I have only a few employees, do the sick leave laws apply?
    • All of my employees want to work remotely, how do I respond?
    • Will OSHA begin to visit or monitor our workplace?
    • Will employers receive a tax credit for providing COVID leave?
    • Are we required to enforce guidelines or mandates or both?

    These issues are causing extra stress in an already difficult time and that is why I've invited Kim Kisner to be a guest speaker for Pittsburgh Professional Women in October. 

    Because of the importance of the topic, this webcast is open to all professionals in Western PA, regardless of membership status. 

    Please join us at 12noon on Wednesday, October 13th and hear the answers to these questions from attorney Kim Kisner. 

    If you have a question for Kim, please submit that when you register.

    Do you feel stuck, icky, or guilty when it comes to getting paid what you're worth or asking for a raise? This women's retreat is just what you've been waiting for.

    You're invited to participate in this intimate gathering at the lovely Oakmont Inn on Saturday, October 23rd for an important and empowering day. During the Release Your Money Blocks workshop, you'll learn:

    •  WHY you resist getting paid what you're worth, have a hard time setting or increasing your fees, or asking for a raise
    • HOW to change these pesky thought patterns and re-wire yourself to think abundantly
    • STRATEGIES to improve your confidence and feel good about your fees
    • HABITS to help you shift out of a mindset of lack and scarcity
    • SIMPLE and PRACTICAL tools to help you manifest abundance in life, love, and business


    Meet your host:

    Life didn't go exactly as planned for Beth Caldwell. At age 26 she had checked all the boxes: great career, beautiful suburban home, sports car, handsome husband. At age 28  she was a divorced mom with two tiny babies, living in a second-floor apartment with no air conditioning, washer, or dryer. She relied on food stamps and coupons to buy infant formula and had no job, no career options, and no formal education. Today she is the proud mom of two college graduates, enjoys a long-lasting and deeply committed relationship with a devoted lover, enjoys a career as a popular author, award-winning entrepreneur, in-demand speaker, and frequent media guest. How did THAT happen?

    ​During this retreat, you'll learn the very simple steps that Beth implemented to achieve abundance and the practices that she continues to embrace today.  Learn how she created a life love and business that she dreamed of and the one that you deserve.
