• More Than A Vision Board: 2 Days of Growth and Prosperity with Coach Kim Burke

    By Winnie C.

    Its 2017 ( it still feels weird saying that right?) and those goals are made and new year resolutions are in place…or so I hope. It is known that:

    1. If you write it down and make it plain, it shall happen.
    2. There’s more to vision boards than just cute pictures and catchy phrases.

    Well thanks to Coach Kim Burke recently hosting her 3rd Annual Personal Growth Series event, we got to make visions and execute them!

    Coach Kim Burke

    Have you tried to take the leap to start your own business, start a program or create a product for the community, or simply map out your next steps to transition from your 9 to 5? Not sure what’s holding you back from achieving your personal goals in life?

    At The Personal Growth Series – A Two Day Growth Experience, women were empowered to replace fear with confidence. Women were encouraged to choose Faith over Fear.  Women were coached to intentionally map out next steps for the New Year and begin to achieve  goals like a Goal Getter.

    Long story short, if you didn’t make it, you missed out.

    BUT luckily you can catch gems in Burke’s It’s Growth Time.

    But the experience was amazing and I am not only grateful I was able to cover it but that I had a seat at the table. Things happen for a reason and clearly me taking my new journal with me was aligned with Burke’s book and it is GO time!

    Before walking in, I thought I knew my master plan in life, but after day two, I walked out a new woman with a new mindset on the following that Burke guaranteed and delivered:

    Clarity About Personal Goals

    Intentional Growth Strategies

    Growth Vision Board

    Goal Getter Framework

    Mini Personal Growth Plan

    What does growth mean to you?

    Why would someone call you?

    Get a mentor. Read. Be accountable. As you do more, you will realize that everything can’t go with you.

    How do you feel when you haven’t grown?

    What do you need to do this year to grow? Be intentional with new habits. Dress as if you have the interview of your life, at least once a week.
