Didn’t reach your 2019 goals? Time to start the decade off right with an inspirational event and goal-setting workshop hosted by Afrocenchix.
About this event:
At Afrocenchix, we are starting the New Year (and new decade) with a bang as we launch our long awaited conditioner Swirl! As something we started working on seven years ago, we stayed fiercely committed to our dream and pushed through until it was done! We learnt a lot about goal setting along the way and managed to smash our goals around fundraising, team growth and sales. We want to share our secrets to help the community win.
Join us for an evening to remember. At Reach for the Stars we’ll be sharing the story of how our conditioner launch led to our best sales day ever; discussing ambitions and aspirations with leading female entrepreneurs; and settling down for a goal-setting workshop that’s all about you.
We’ve learnt: Knowledge + Inspiration + Action = Success.
After we equip you with the knowledge you need to succeed, we’ll work with you to put that learning into practice straightaway. Get ready to accomplish everything you want and change your dreams into a workable reality.
