It’s that time of year again!! That time when we come together and start, intentionally, planning our course for a successful 2020. Careful planning is essential to sustained business success. It defines winning for the next 12 months. It gives you a road map for decision making and measuring success. Without a clear plan, you are very likely to fail. You know you need to take time to plan, because if you don’t then you won’t achieve your goals. But you also know life has a habit of getting in the way of that planning. Join the Metro DC ATD Free Agent CoP for a night of celebrating, planning, and tackling your biggest challenges! This interactive session will help you to assess your current goals, recognize your successes, and connect you with people and ideas to push through the tougher aspects of life as a free agent. We know you’re ready to make 2020 your most successful year yet, so join us for an evening dedicated to the connections and strategies that will make it happen!
