Join Hannah Lancaster, Design Sprint Facilitator for Bridge Innovate, in this digital learning experience of creating a Value Proposition Canvas for growth. Learn to understand your customer’s needs better and how to communicate the value of your product and services.
Expect any kind of business or personal growth to be met with resistance. Even though we want support from our loved ones, many times we get the opposite.
The “Show Up & Be You” (SUBY) talk will show that it’s possible to stop walking on eggshells and live your true life. You’ll learn ways to relieve stress, renew your purpose and feel revived.
You’ll experience a profound and simple technique that’s transformed hundreds of clients. Practiced on a regular basis you’ll experience ways to:
1. Disengage from pressure & stress
2. Set yourself up for success
3. Focus your energy on what matters most
4. Get back on track when you've been derailed
You can get unstuck and stop walking on eggshells. Knowing how to move forward with confidence is possible. You can influence with power & love, without regrets.
Begin the process of living your true life beyond messy relationships. There’s no guarantee that resistance won’t happen. But you have what it takes to move through it and into your purpose.

Just a short 15-minute drive from downtown Chattanooga and you will find yourself on our serene six acre homestead in Hixson. Why yoga with goats, you ask? Because goat cuddles reduce anxiety and depression by increasing oxytocin and dopamine levels, those good ole bonding and feel-good hormones. Now who doesn’t need more of that especially these days? When you come to Moser Manor Farms you will be instantly surrounded by serene, calming pastures. You’ll join us in our outdoor common area on the side of the barn next to the animal pastures where you’ll find mats we provide waiting for you.
This session is limited to 25 people and reservations are required.
The Enneagram is a system that helps you uncover your core personality, deeper motivations, and unconscious patterns. But more than that, it is a map that helps you grow beyond your personality and shows the way to your true self. It is a tool for transformational personal growth, and it all starts with knowing your Type. This is the beginning point to unlocking all the magic that the Enneagram holds. This workshop will introduce you to the Nine personality types in a fun, interactive way + booze.
