WITI's Las Vegas Conference

orange arrow  Take Charge of Your Life
By Stephanie Marston, MFT

Stephanie MarstonThe majority of us are exhausted from climbing the corporate ladder, dressing for success and trying to balance our work and family lives. We live as if we are careening down a freeway at warp speed. The French philosopher Rene Descartes said, "I think therefore I am." Our modern day version of this has become "I do therefore I am." So many of us live by the mantra "I have to keep up," "I am what I do," "I have to push myself," "I have to prove my worth," "I have to keep going." As long as you continue to subscribe to the philosophy that you are what you do you'll be driven to prove yourself, please other people and live up to someone else's standards. In other words, your life won't be your own.

orange arrow  From Bad Stress to Good
By Mellanie True Hills

Mellanie Hills Have you ever missed the alarm clock and awakened late the morning of a big meeting? Did you throw on makeup and clothes, speed to work while fighting traffic, whip into Starbucks for your coffee fix, spill it on yourself while lunging back into traffic, and then arrive late for your meeting only to find out that you're supposed to make a presentation that you didn't even know about? Were you stressed? Or were you able to go with the flow and laugh it off?

orange arrow Upcoming Network Events:

"At a recent WITI Boston event, I met a former client from 10 years ago when I worked for another company. We sat together at the meeting and got re-acquainted. Since then, my former client has introduced me to several IT executives at their firm to generate interest in our services, which may lead to new business. This demonstrates that networking and participating in WITI events can have very positive results...both professionally and personally."
