This year, YPC will host monthly breakfasts for members and prospective members at the Metropolitan Club the first Thursday of every month. The breakfasts are $5.00 for members and only $10 for guests (you can hardly get a half-caf latte and muffin for that!).

Make It Happen! Getting Intentional Results in 2015

Price: $15.00

Date: January 28, 2015

What’s the difference between great results that happen on purpose vs. great results that happen by chance? The difference is intentionality!

Have you ever found yourself out of balance?  Where part of your life seems to be going well and on track, but another piece of your life keeps falling short of your expectations?  Getting the results that we want in our career, making time for the people that are important to us, and taking care of ourselves and our health don’t always seem to go well together… and if we don’t take charge, the chances are that one or more of these areas will suffer.  To truly get what we want in life, a clear vision will help us prioritize what’s really important and a strong plan of action will get us moving in the right direction.


Attend this event to learn:

  • How to get more clear on what we want in different aspects of our lives
  • The skills and habits that allow us to move more quickly toward our goals, even in a highly competitive workforce
  • How to hold yourself accountable to living out your plan
  • How to create a plan that helps you navigate the obstacles in your path and gives you fuel to make it through the tough parts of the plan
