EWN Speaker Series – Worklife Balance

No comments

Work-life balance is often an elusive concept for everyone these days. It seems like our lives are getting busier and our visions of productivity and peace are often interrupted by demands and obligations beyond our control.

Women have a special perspective on work-life balance, because they are often expected to fulfill a particularly demanding role at home and at work. Women are often expected to provide a lot of support in their relationships with their families (whether that’s in their role as a “mom”, “spouse” or “sister/daughter”) while also still feeling excited and energized to pursue their business and career goals.

Want to learn how to efficiently manage your work-life balance? Join us at the 2ndEWN Speaker Series on Wednesday 10th August 2016 at Golden Tulip Hotel. Our guest speakers for the program will be Dr. Ellen Hagan (CEO – L’aine Services) and Uncle Ebo Whyte (CEO – Roverman Productions).

RSVP & Payment (Mobile Money):056111044, 0202353097, 0547399743.

Relieve Stress with T’ai Chi

That sounded like a prayer. A prayer in a public school. God has no place within these walls, just like facts don’t have a place within an organized religion. Son, a woman is like a beer. They smell good, they look good, you’d step over your own mother just to get one! But you can’t stop at one. You wanna drink another woman! The Internet King? I wonder if he could provide faster nudity.
