Presented by Claudine Shimmer “Nourishing our Minds to Accomplish the Bigger Goals”. We looked at our relationship to time and what is at the heart of our goals. We did a meditation exercise where we explored where our self-imposed limitations are and who you want to become. We looked at each person establishing a ritual / daily goal. We also had our special guests from CCOC - a recipient of a scholarship which purchased tools for a Union Contractor. It was great to hear the good work they are doing, for women in particular. Welcome to our newest member Lisa from The Blue Book Building and Construction Network!
