Humans are wired to live for the next good thing – the next raise, the next vacation, finding that special someone – the list goes on and on. Yet positive psychology finds that when we start with ourselves and our strengths – rather than a narrow focus on circumstances or even the goals we’re striving toward – we’re happier and more successful in the long run.
This interactive workshop reveals participants’ core strengths and empowers them to leverage these strengths to live by design versus default across all areas of life. Participants will get clarity on core strengths, purpose and personal goals based on who they are at their highest and best. They can avoid the energy-depleting pattern of racing toward the next good thing, and start living and breathing it with more courage, ease and focus.

Trained through the premier International Coach Federation accredited program, Accomplishment Coaching, Devon encourages her clients to step away from the mandates of what’s “right” or “wrong,” and what they “should” be doing in life, while mindfully connecting with the core of who they are and what they really desire.

From that space, she supports them creating powerful transformation and a fulfilling life they love.

For the August Cleveland Professional 20/30 book club, we will be discussing "Finish: Give Yourself the Gift of Done" by Jon Acuff.
#1 Wall Street Journal bestseller! Jon Acuff, New York Times best-selling author of Do Over, Quitter, and Start, offers strategies for anyone who's ever wondered, "Why can't I finish what I started?"
According to studies, 92 percent of New Year’s resolutions fail. You’ve practically got a better shot at getting into Juilliard to become a ballerina than you do at finishing your goals.
For years, I thought my problem was that I didn’t try hard enough. So I started getting up earlier. I drank enough energy drinks to kill a horse. I hired a life coach and ate more superfoods. Nothing worked, although I did develop a pretty nice eyelid tremor from all the caffeine. It was like my eye was waving at you, very, very quickly.
Then, while leading a thirty-day online course to help people work on their goals, I learned something surprising: The most effective exercises were not those that pushed people to work harder. The ones that got people to the finish line did just the opposite— they took the pressure off.
Why? Because the sneakiest obstacle to meeting your goals is not laziness, but perfectionism. We’re our own worst critics, and if it looks like we’re not going to do something right, we prefer not to do it at all. That’s why we’re most likely to quit on day two, “the day after perfect”—when our results almost always underperform our aspirations.
The strategies in this book are counterintuitive and might feel like cheating. But they’re based on studies conducted by a university researcher with hundreds of participants. You might not guess that having more fun, eliminating your secret rules, and choosing something to bomb intentionally works. But the data says otherwise. People who have fun are 43 percent more successful! Imagine if your diet, guitar playing, or small business was 43 percent more successful just by following a few simple principles.
If you’re tired of being a chronic starter and want to become a consistent finisher, you have two options: You can continue to beat yourself up and try harder, since this time that will work. Or you can give yourself the gift of done.
Please join us to discuss the book on August 27th at The Fairmount. I will be there a few minutes early and will place the book on a table for recognition (if nice weather will be on patio, if not will be inside). Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.

For the April Cleveland Professional 20/30 book club, we will be discussing Cal Newport's "Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World"
"A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Publishers Weekly, and USA Today bestseller
"Newport is making a bid to be the Marie Kondo of technology: someone with an actual plan for helping you realize the digital pursuits that do, and don't, bring value to your life."--Ezra Klein, Vox
Minimalism is the art of knowing how much is just enough. Digital minimalism applies this idea to our personal technology. It's the key to living a focused life in an increasingly noisy world.In this timely and enlightening book, the bestselling author of Deep Work introduces a philosophy for technology use that has already improved countless lives."
Please join us to discuss the book on April 9th at Griffin Cider House. I will be there a few minutes early and will place the book on the table upstairs for recognition. Contact email@example.com with questions.

Tartine Bistro opened in July of 2008 with the intention of providing a little slice of Paris in the heart of Rocky River.

Michael, a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Academy took over as Executive Chef in the spring of 2016 and has revitalized and re-worked the entire concept. BJ, who studied under some of the best sommeliers in San Diego and San Francisco, has taken the wine list and service to whole new levels, offering an eclectic collection of bottles and glass pours. What was once the local spot to enjoy some small snacks and a glass of wine has become the go to destination in Rocky River for some of the most inventive fare and finest service in the city of Cleveland.
