Exploring Balance Living in Portland, Oregon
May 11, 2013 • Speaking
Last weekend (May 3-4) I had the wonderful pleasure of spending it with members of the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) in Portland, Oregon. The event was the inaugural chapter retreat for EO Portland. The focus of study was “The Art of Balancing Life”. The event was geared towards members and their spouses which was great as I am a big supporter of this. I always tell members of this organization that they should include their spouses in as many personal development learning events as possible. It is very important both individuals in the relationship develop themselves together so that no one is left behind in their growth. If one person develops rapidly and the other does not then this creates a gap that can be problematic in a relationship.
It was so great to see that many members brought their spouses with them and we enjoyed two lovely days of learning and interacting with one another.
