Vision-Board

GUIDED VISION BOARD WORKSHOP

4 HOURS

$165 + GST

Keep your business dream and vision alive through an image! This is an investment in you and your future.

 

It’s not just a board with pictures and words; it’s an inspirational, motivational, and aspirational tool to push you towards your goals, dreams, and aspirations over the next 3-12 months. The timeframe is deliberate: it focuses the mind and makes the goals much more achievable.

 

Neuroscientist Dr. Tara Swart explains: "Looking at images on a vision board primes the brain to grasp opportunities that may otherwise have gone unnoticed. That’s because the brain has a process called ‘value-tagging’ which imprints important things onto your subconscious and filters out unnecessary information.”

 

Seeing your vision will help you stay focused, motivated, and aligned with your goals by making them more tangible and easier to understand. This clarity allows you to concentrate on what’s truly important, filter out distractions, and align your daily activities with long-term objectives.

 

Join us for this guided vision board workshop and take the next step toward making your business dreams a reality.

Suitable group size:

4-10 participants

I had the pleasure to attend one of Tania’s Drawer full of Giants creative workshops in June and I am incredibly grateful for the direction and suggestions Tania was able to give me. As a solopreneur who is having to learn so much from scratch, having someone to take your hand and help you through the creative process for marketing material, resources and the like is helpful. I was able to bring my project along and Tania very quickly created some incredibly useful designs based off my brand that I could cut and paste into my designs. Tania was happy to critique my work, in a supportive and encouraging way and give me feedback on how I could improve the design and layout and take it to the next level. As someone who wants to learn how to do things myself and take ownership for it, rather pass it off to someone else, I have found Tania’s workshop enormously helpful. Tania will be the first person I contact when I need a deeper level of assistance for bigger projects. In summary, I found this workshop and Tania’s input very helpful, supportive, collaborative and creative. Tania was warm and friendly and obviously enjoys helping people learn. Fully recommend her to others.
