April 2022 Chapter Meeting

February 2022 Chapter Meeting

February Chapter Meeting featuring Aimee Olson

TOPIC: Being Present: Showing Up Consistently For Our Clients
Showing up on time and being fully present for a client isn’t optional— it’s required if you want to maintain your professional reputation, command more money, and grow your business through referrals. By practicing readiness, mindfulness, and compassion, you can make a positive impression on your client at every session.
This training is ideal for new professionals who are looking to make a great first impression with their clients & boost their referral business, and veteran professionals who may have become complacent and have lost their professional reputation or edge with some clients.

Aimee’s Bio: Aimee Olson is a holistic productivity & organizing coach, the founder of Life Done Simply, and a past President for NAPO Minnesota. Before starting her coaching business, Aimee was a 2x crowned community ambassador, attending 400+ public appearances on behalf of her communities. During this time, Aimee learned the importance of “showing up” even on a bad day. She has used her media training, pageant prep, and ambassador experience to elevate her professional reputation with her clients.

Aimee continues to volunteer and serves as an etiquette, appearance, & interview coach for Minnesota community scholarship programs that promote personal and professional development for young women. She takes tremendous pride in her dedication to her clients and hopes to inspire others to think of every session as an opportunity to be fully present for the client.

Back to Business 2022 – Session II. with Katrina Green (Virtual format)

Back to Business 2022 – Session I. with Katie McDonald (Virtual format)

Our Back to Business workshops are back again in 2022. 

First session is featuring Katie McDonald, founder and owner of b.nourished. 

Her topic is: “Self-care is not selfish. It is your duty!” available via Zoom.

We know how to get things done. It is what we do. Who we are. We are the ones everyone relies on and we rarely disappoint… even if it means abandoning ourselves. Day after day we uphold promises to others in service to our businesses, families, and communities yet we often think nothing of breaking our word to ourselves. The fantasy that today will be different- we will get enough sleep, rest, good nutrition, and exercise-endures. We think we have to choose self-care or productivity and we know which one will win every time. In our culture, a to-do list is valued above a to-be list. Maybe we can’t pull it off anymore.

We are tired, depleted, resentful and ready to challenge the long-held belief that self-care is selfish. Something has to change and we are poised to leverage a resource we have yet to fully employ-intentional and unapologetic self-care.

    • expose the ways in which we bury our legitimate needs in the busyness
    • gain clarity that self-neglect is selfish and an ill-advised success strategy
    • learn once and for all that there is no “have-it-all together” club

Katie’s Bio: Katie McDonald, CEO and founder of b.nourished, had to learn the hard way. Depleted and sick from chronic overwork and the disease of busy-ness, Katie had to apply her knowledge of self-care, alternative health, and nutrition to transform her own life. As a Self-care Strategist, Katie now devotes herself to coaching others to make the thoughtful, deliberate choices it takes to become the people they want and deserve to be. An authoritative speaker and recognized thought leader, Katie offers 6-month one-on-one concierge coaching and engaging presentations to corporations and organizations. The majority of b.nourished clients initially reach out because they feel off, overwhelmed, and exhausted in the hustle and bustle of daily obligations. The resulting stress often manifests in: excess weight; digestive issues; fatigue; asthma; anxiety and depression. Mostly there is an acknowledgment that they are living beneath their potential in health and well-being. They can no longer ‘get away with’ ignoring their bodies and minds. They are taking care of business and everyone else at the expense of taking care of themselves. They are ready to make lasting change. And they do. Featured in Huffington Post, Apartment Therapy, Dwell, Providence Journal and more, she has presented to Eileen Fisher Leadership Institute, Swarovski, CVS Health, Women President’s Organization as well as many more.
