NOW WHAT?:  How to answer the adult career questions!

November 4 & 5                   December 6 & 7

Are you ready to retire, but don't know what to do next?

Is your company sending signals that it is time to leave?

Are your kids leaving the nest soon?

Have you spent years in the car driving other people around?

Have you been focused on the well-being of everyone else in your family?

Are you suddenly divorced or widowed and now need to support yourself?

IF YOU HAVE ANSWERED "YES" TO EVEN ONE OF THESE QUESTIONS, THIS IS THE PROGRAM FOR YOU.

"Now What?" is a 1 ½ day workshop to think about what YOU want to do next. What do YOU want to be doing with your days once your kids are on their own?  Please join us for a day to think about yourself, facilitated by our own Marci Maniker! You deserve it!

Cost: $650.00, includes dinner, continental breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack. Space is limited for the two workshops. Please RSVP to M.Maniker@gmail.com.
