MacGyver Your Life: A Virtual Workshop

Wednesday, January 13, 2021 - 7:30pm

So often we feel trapped or stuck in our current situation and look to outside forces to help us escape. Waiting for retirement, or when the kids get back to school, or when things “slow down.” We hope others will save us. But no one is coming to save us, we must save ourselves. This workshop, based on the popular TV show MacGyver, breaks down the three phases of “escape” that MacGyver uses to save himself in every episode. During the 90 minutes the participants will work through a series interactive exercises to assess where they are, plot their escape and set their action plan. This is a great way to help set intentions and actions for the new year.
