A Terrific Time at Totally Terrific 2013
Our second annual half day of motivation, inspiration and goal setting was conducted in Washington, D.C. at "Totally Terrific 2013." We enjoyed time with achievers from AARP, NAM, Oracle, Patton Boggs, Mattel, and many other national associations and corporations. Topics included the science of willpower, why you must triage your personal and work relationships, how to get rid of baggage, and priority management (because it's about priorities, not time!). We concluded with my "Top 29 Tips for Totally Terrific 2013." What did the attendees think?
"The 'Top 29 Tips' were very valuable, as well as the goal setting exercise. Amy was absolutely engaging, walked the talk, and made everyone feel comfortable. Thank you!"
- Mary Liz Burns, AARP
"You inspire me and I am so glad I finally had an opportunity to participate in one of your seminars. You rock Amy Showalter!"
- Janie O'Connor, Humana
