Interviewing + Presenting Yourself

Whether you’re applying to external opportunities, communicating with colleagues to get a promotion, or networking to expand your professional relationships, you have to know how to present yourself.

It can be challenging to gauge what to say and how to effectively tailor your message to the audience at hand. In this interactive virtual training, we’ll cover EVERYTHING from formal interview prep (including how to answer the dreaded “Tell me about yourself” question!) to presenting yourself in these other contexts.

It will have in person attendees but also be streaming for virtual participation, and recorded for future views. If you're interested in wellness programming in Boston or the Metrowest area, please reach out.

Fact: The EU has banned more than 1,300 chemicals in the formulas of personal care products in the past two decades. The US has only partially banned 30.

Of the more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today, many do not have any safety data. While additional research still needs to be done, we know that these chemicals can cause a host of health issues, including weight gain and cancer.

Please join us in our wellness webinar – You Are What Your Skin Eats – to learn ways to keep your sanity and budget in check while protecting your health.

Ladies Lounge: Coaching for Better Health + Wellness

Ladies Lounge, a monthly event series hosted by GA, is spending November with Boston's top health and wellness coaches to get us on track for this holiday season.

Why It Matters?

Take this opportunity to finish out 2018 with a bang, get a head start on the New Year, and make healthy habits for life.

What You'll Take Away?
Meet Boston's health coaches. They're here to give us some health inspiration, motivation and tips on making this holiday season stress-free. They'll share their stories about how they're making careers of being trusted wellness gurus.

Design a Career You Love

Wouldn't it be great to wake up every day and be excited to start your work, instead of going through motions to satisfy "the man"? Too often, we focus on the wrong things while trying to figure out our careers. We think we either need to chase the money or give up everything to pursue our passions. The trick is finding the sweet spot where what you love, what you're good at, and what you value overlap one another.

Achieve Your Career Goals Without Sacrificing Your Health

Do you constantly feel like you have to choose between working hard and taking care of yourself?

Perhaps you've noticed the vicious cycle: you prioritize work, spend less time cooking/exercising/sleeping, then inevitably get sick. You slow everything down but once you're feeling better, you're back in go-go-go mode and that "all-or-nothing" approach. 

While it may not feel like it's possible, it's true:

You don't have to choose between your work and your well-being.

This free training focuses on stress and sleep, and the impact both have on our health and job performance. You'll discover how to take make lasting changes in a culture that makes you feel like there's no other way to live. With these tools, you can reach your career goals while also being healthy enough to do what you love outside of the office.

Stress Less this Spring

Join us for an evening of essential oil infused restorative yoga + a brief discussion of simple tools to create more calm.

Class is at a private residence in South Natick, MA. If you're interested in attending please email Aileen at aileen@aspirewithaileen.com
