Held at Herzing University (555 South Executive Drive, Brookfield, WI) Register on MeetUp; http://www.meetup.com/Milwaukee-Business-Professionals/events/41435342/
Please welcome internationally known speaker, Boaz. He’s really that good; he only needs one name! Come have Lunch n’ Learn with us!
I have personally experienced Boaz live and in person a year ago. He is an amazing, energetic, charismatic speaker who will get you fired up to make some personal changes to fire up your life! If you have difficulty speaking to or connecting with others, this is the place for you. Or, if you just want to be the best you can be and work on your self-growth to be able to build your business, be at Herzing University on December 8th.
Please check in at 11:45am. Lunch will be served promptly from noon-12:30pm. The presentation will begin at 12:30 and all food cleared out of the way so we can get to work. Please arrive promptly at or before noon, so you don’t miss lunch. We will be serving hot Italian entrees, pasta and sauce, salad, bread, coffee & bottled water.
We have a strict limit of 30 seats for this exclusive engagement. Corporations pay thousands of dollars to have Boaz train and inspire their employees. We have the distinct pleasure to enjoy an inspirational message from Boaz and a delicious lunch for only $20. Register early because this will fill up and I hate to see people miss out because of procrastination. http://www.meetup.com/Milwaukee-Business-Professionals/events/41435342/
Here is a small sample of some of his work;
The Tiberias Success Formula
By Boaz Rauchwerger
Step 1: Affirmations. These are statements of goals you desire, written as if they were already accomplished, with an emotion added. If the goal is time-sensitive, set a date. Read your affirmations the first thing each morning and the last thing each night. Set goals that are achievable, reach them and then raise them. Do not analyze the “how.” Just clarify an exciting “why.”
Step 2: The 31-Day Charge. Listen for 2 or 3 minutes to a positive CD, while you get ready in the morning. The first 15 minutes of the day will set your mood for the entire day.
Step 3: Readings. It’s much more productive to familiarize yourself with a few basic human relations techniques, and make them a part of you, than to read many books and not internalize any of them. I recommend “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie and “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill. Read just one page each day in each book. When completed, read the books again.
Step 4: Exercise & Eat Right. Take a few minutes, two or three times a week, to get some exercise. Great mental energy is created when you’re in good physical shape. Balanced and controlled eating will help you live longer and healthier.
Step 5: The Fortune Fund. Carry a $100 bill at all times. It will make you feel prosperous. Save some money every day. Get an envelope and put a dollar bill or more in it every day. Stop charging impulsively and place $20 bills around the house.
Step 6: Action. Take some kind of action every day on your most important goal. Small steps, over time, turn into giant leaps.
