How do you move closer to Lady Liberty and keep life in balance?Come to the next AWC luncheon and be prepared to share your best “work-life balance” tip! There will be a fun activity to inspire and learn from each other.

DON'T FORGET:
Bring your best WORK-LIFE Balance tip.You can type it up in advance or write it on an index cards provided at the meeting.Ask your guests to do the same.

Can’t make it? You can still participate. Send your tip to LaDonna Greiner atLaDonna.G@21Reasons.Life. We will miss you but no worries -- all members will get a list of all the tips submitted (another great benefit of membership)!
