    The AWT October Lunch-n-Learn will feature 

    Carrie Vanston with Leadership Mindset Success.

    Shifting your mindset to the positive is one of the best - and fastest - ways to make a bigger impact on your business - and life. And if you're not out there making a difference with what you are doing, frankly, you're missing the boat! But how do you get started? And how do you learn to navigate all the in's and out's of mindset confidence?

    Join us as Carrie Vanston teaches strategies in this interactive session to connect with what you really want, shift to a positive mindset, and lead with confidence so you will reach your goals quicker and with more joy and fulfillment. You will leave with strategies you can apply right away! 

    You will learn how to: 

    • Intentionally shift to a positive, growth mindset for new opportunities.
    • Collaborate and communicate with others for better outcomes.
    • Inspire yourself and others with leadership passion and uniqueness.
