If you know me at all, you know that understanding the PURPOSE behind everything is essential to keeping a life in alignment. My driving purpose for creating this series of online Roundtables (not surprisingly called CREATING YOUR LIFE) is for each woman to stand in the power and beauty of her own life.
The gift of doing deeper work in a group of like-minded women, is that as each woman dives into the subject, hears other’s wisdom and experiences, and then shares her own. This makes it not only possible, but easy to let go of beliefs and fears that no longer serve her to choose ones that affirm and strengthened her own authentic voice.
Each session explores a single aspect of our lives, focusing on building inner strength and courage. As one of the women said during the last session, so many times for her it was a tweaking of details that allowed for living in an easier flow.
Our first sessions explored KNOWING MYSELF. The second sessions were all about OWNING MY LIFE. These last four weeks were about BELIEVING MYSELF and these, our final four-week sessions for 2020, is learning to trust our own integrity, called TRUSTING MYSELF.
My work, whether in person or online, presents the best practices on each subject, how we got to this point as women, how it is different than for men, various options and always new ways of thinking on each topic. A veritable smorgasbord of ideas. Bring your best, take what you need and want, and you will leave filled and happy, thinking in new ways that can be profoundly useful and affirming.
The beautiful deep bonds of affection and support keep growing between the women in the sessions. These two hours are a safe place to share what we think, feel and know -- without judgment—and it is this honesty that nudges us into actions that help us live our lives in alignment.
I warmly invite you to join amazing women from all over the world for these dynamic and impactful sessions in our next series called TRUSTING MYSELF. I can promise you that it will enrich your life in ways you cannot even imagine.
I look forward to working with you.
Series FOUR: TRUSTING MYSELF (4 x 2 hour sessions)
1. FEAR OF FAILING
WEDNESDAY OCT 14
1-3pm or 7-9pm ET
All of us have deep fears of making fools of ourselves. This fear takes many shapes and sizes but the looming one is that we will fail. This session is to understand the fears that we internalize as women so that we can avoid failure; to see where this fear comes from, and understand how to overcome it.
2. SELF ESTEEM
WEDNESDAY OCT 21
1-3pm or 7-9pm ET
How good are you in your own estimation? Is this self-esteem or are you just full of yourself? What is the difference? What do the voices in your head say and how do you develop self-esteem anyway?
3. CRUSH OF CRITICISMWEDNESDAY OCT 29
1-3pm or 7-9pm ET
We are only taught about two types of criticisms in our lives: constructive and destructive criticism. But there is another one—a nattering destructive criticism that is indicative of much more beneath the surface. What part does criticism play in our lives—and what part should it play?
4. THE COUNTRY OF HAPPINESS
WEDNESDAY NOV 4
1-3pm or 7-9pm ET
There is so much written today on happiness. Is ‘happiness’ a country you can live in or can you just visit this country once in a while? Let’s take a good deep dive into happiness.

Invite a friend. It's a perfect way to connect with your friends and women from all over the world to continue meaningful conversations in mutual agreement and support.
Each week you will receive beautifully designed pages for your CREATING MY LIFE workbook. These are the questions for each week ‘s session along with many of the quotes I use and postcards.

And just as their vulnerability and wisdom supports and encourages you to create your life with new vitality and energy, so your experiences and wisdom will open them to new perspectives.

WOMEN’S REFLECTIONS ON THE ROUNDTABLES:
“I was thrilled to be able to attend some of your "Round Table" sessions. I have loved every minute. They have fulfilled beyond measure anything I could have possibly imagined. All of these women are bright stars. And, yes, that includes me even though it feels very weird to say that. But it is becoming easier through working with our group and the sessions prior to this group starting. I look at every woman in our group and think "they have no idea how courageous they really are."
Thank you so much for this very special encampment on this journey of self-discovery and this adventure we call Life.”
Lisa.W. “It is the Greatest gift to be on the roundtable calls. I am forever grateful. Thank you for taking the time to put these together, to hold a powerful magical space for us all.”
Frederique “Your sessions reflect the work you bring to ask the questions and move the discussion along to identifying actions and words we can all identify and relate to our own lives. It is my privilege to be included in this wonderful group of women.”
Gill E. “I truly have enjoyed the roundtables that I have attended. There were numerous benefits but a couple that are important to me are: 1) the opportunity to not only connect but get to know some unique and intelligent women that I would otherwise not have met, 2) being able to think more deeply about who I am, my authenticity, and the power that is inside of me to enable me to keep moving forward no matter what the challenge.”
Kathy.K. “I woke up this morning even more grateful for the space you provide in your workshops. Each week, I have been able to contemplate deeper aspects of myself. More importantly, however, I have been to apply this understanding at work and with friends and family, and myself.”

MORE BACKGROUND ON
NANCY TRITES BOTKIN
A professional woman who loves being a woman, I empower women to speak up, stand up, and connect with their greatness. Think8 Women (www.think8women.com) was created to enable women to find their purpose and use their gifts to change their world and the world. “Nancy Trites Botkin is an amazing facilitator, truly inspirational and brilliant, with the ability to touch people’s lives and change the way they think.” A.M. As Co-Founder and President of the Think8 Global Institute, transforming companies and organizations around the globe, it became clear that women wrestle with issues not always seen or addressed. Women take courses, we hire coaches, but rarely are our specific skill sets or the hurdles we jump through as women, acknowledged. How we create and move in the world is different from men, yet we are often measured against the ‘norm’ and found ‘lacking’. It is easy to get trapped in insecurities or fears that fuel over-commitment and over-delivery, then we wonder why we burn out.
Drawing on my background as an award-winning writer-producer-director in film and television, I designed the CREATING YOUR LIFE Series to deal with the real issues we face as women, and how they interconnect to the whole of our lives. Each topic is taken apart in light of current trends, common “think” and historical perspectives, peeling back layers in deeper questions, to share invaluable insights, experience and wisdom.
