Well here we are, almost at the end of 2014! What a bumpy ride this year has been, both agonizing and exhilarating.
I’ve learned some really important lessons – lessons that I’m already leveraging for next year’s plans!In 2015 I will be focusing my time and energy on improving the Athena Network experience – and creating even more opportunities for our members through technology and key partnerships.
But until then, crack open the Baileys, snuggle up with your loved ones and enjoy peaceful and relaxing holiday season!
Thank you for your support. We look forward to welcoming you in the New Year 🙂

Your Dreams and Visions for 2015
Not a new year’s resolution. More than one. Close your eyes and imagine yourself doing exactly what you love and desire to be doing. Are you smiling yet? What’s stopping you from making this a reality now, this year, in 2015?Vision boards are a creative, visual, artsy, fun and very effective way to realise your dreams and make your visions come to life. Learn how to make one and from then on you can make as many as you want. These group sessions are a powerful way of seeing your dream come to life right in front of your eyes, as you cut and paste inspiring images and words from magazines and paste them onto your own, large piece of cardboard. Voicing our visions at the end in a group is also a beautiful way to reinforce them.
