SELF AWARENESS 101: The Path To Fulfillment & Ease What constitutes a worthwhile, joyful and fulfilling life? For each person the answer will be different, since there is no standard path to a calm, peaceful, and joyous life; everyone's path is different. Yet, a peaceful, calm,  joyful and fulfilled life is what we all seek and yearn for. Joy is not something that can be pursued and it's also not a permanent state of chirpiness. It ebbs and flows with periods of great pain and suffering. This acceptance of the impermanence of joy is one of the keys to a life of fulfillment and ease. Plus, there is an advantage to being joyful.  Studies have shown that when people are joyful and at peace they are more effective in life and also relate better to their classmates, friends and families. This workshop is designed for TWEENS & TEENS -- students who believe there is value in investing in themselves - that they are worth it - and for those who yearn to be more joyful, more fulfilled and more peaceful in their lives at school and at home. Join us as we share insights for the path to joy, personal mastery and self-respect through happiness exercises, practices and tools. You will learn about: Self Awareness & Self Acceptance What Really Matters in Life 
What Actually Makes Us Happy How Should We Treat Each Other How To Be Happier At School How To Overcome Those Difficult Moments - Resilience "Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power." -Lao Tzu

Money & Life Series: DEMYSTIFYING FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS Everything you wanted to know about financial statements but were afraid to ask. For new and old business owners ... and the curious. Are You Afraid of Your Financial Statements? I have spent a lot of time with business owners over the past 29 years and realized that many have a great instinct for business and are usually very successful. They get very excited when they talked about the product or service they are selling. But when the topic changed to the financial end of the business most got very quiet and uncomfortable. Most when questioned about the financial statements will say, "I am not really interested in that stuff, I have people in my office who knows that stuff'. The truth is YOU need to know that stuff...it's critical, because if you don't, you are a sitting duck waiting to be taken advantage of. In these challenging economic times, the importance of learning how to read a financial statement is a business imperative. As such, we have decided that this is an important 'Life' skill that should be offered at The ACADEMi of Life. So we are including this service in our Life & Money series. We will offer private one on one session for business owners to sit down with us and ask ANY question they want without feeling the pressure of judgment from their peers. How many workshops, courses, and webinars have you attended on this subject, yet you walk away with unanswered questions! There are NO stupid questions in these sessions. This is a judgment free environment. Register today for this important and valuable life skill. Sessions offered Monday-Friday between the hours of 12pm - 7:00 pm for 90 minutes per session for the price of $349.00. Once you register you can schedule date and time.

Everything in your life, from the mundane to the extraordinary, is a story waiting to be told. Many of us want to leave behind a record of our lives that we were here. Yes, our footprint. In this memorable workshop, you will discover your own unique and powerful story. We will use the memoir form of writing to encourage you to live out loud and to help you comprehend the value of your life. “If you are not afraid of the voices in you, you will not fear the critics outside you,” so says Natalie Goldberg. Writing can let you hear your voice above the critics. Did you know that there were health benefits to writing? There is recent evidence to support the claim that increased intellectual activity and brain stimulation i.e. recording one’s memories can lower the individual risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s. Through fun exercises, practical techniques and group discussion, this insightful, fun and practical workshop, will help you uncover the writer hiding in you. You will find your authentic voice, along with a way to express it. You’ll be surprised at how great a writer you can become. We will also share how to become a published writer. You’ll learn all about the publishing industry from writing a query letter to finding a publisher. Bring your favorite pen and a writing journal. All levels welcome. “I don't think everyone wants to create the great American novel, but we all have a dream of telling our stories-of realizing what we think, feel, and see before we die. Writing is a path to meet ourselves and become intimate.” - Natalie Goldberg
