With Gratitude and Reflection


Looking back, it’s been quite a year with many lessons, milestones and celebrations from Programs at ACO.   We are blessed with incredibly gifted and driven individuals on our committee who worked diligently to co-create some fabulous programming over the past year.  Thank you, Anne Marie Nantais, Kay Axtell,  Nancy Bean, David Rose, Peter Resch, Kristine Shiverick, Crista Hopp and Rodney Ziebol for all that you do.  If you connect with these individuals in some way, please take a few moments to acknowledge their volunteering and service to ACO.  Our mission for Programs has been to promote opportunities within the organization for professional development as an added benefit of your ACO Membership.  We have delivered on some great opportunities to learn and earn CCEUs with both coaching and business development.  I am honored to serve with this team – with much gratitude!

Now, get set for a fabulous year ahead!

As a solopreneur, you wear most (if not all) of the hats in your business.  For some, this leads to spinning your wheels, not knowing where to put your efforts on any given day.  Are you looking for more clarity about which actions you will take to move your business forward on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis and timetable that suits YOU? Please consider joining us for our next…
