Work-Life Balance: A WNBA-Los Angeles Round Table Webinar

June 24, 2020 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm PDT

WNBA-LA invites you to take part in a round table conversation on an essential topic: Work-Life Balance.

Are you taking care of your self? And how are you managing to juggle work and personal responsibilities, when you are constantly sidelined by challenges, such as mandatory isolation and economic disruption?

Authors Bridgitte Jackson-Buckley and Jen Jones Donatelli join moderator Debra Eckerling to share their stories and tips for achieving balance. After the panel, we will welcome attendees to ask questions, as well as share their experiences and advice.

A Roadmap for Setting, Planning and Achieving Your Goals

Start with a plan. One of the biggest reasons goals fail is that we often don’t put enough thought into what we really want before diving in. Your Goal Guide by Debra Eckerling starts with that first, crucial step: figuring out your goals and putting a plan in place. As a professional writer, communications specialist, and project catalyst with more than 20 years of experience, Eckerling is prepared to help you achieve success.

How I Used Meditation to Go From Financial Failure to a Life of Purpose

You are not alone: Since the start of the recession, 8.8 million jobs have been lost, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Bridgitte Jackson-Buckley was one of those 8.8 million people who lost their jobs. Between 2007 and 2014, she was also one of 7.3 million homeowners who lost their homes to foreclosure. Some affected by job loss and foreclosure, due to the economic downturn, were able to bounce back relatively emotionally unscathed. Many, however, internalized the outer events as a negative reflection of their personal capacities without taking a deeper look at the crisis as a potential underlying catalyst. In The Gift of Crisis, Bridgitte shows you how to explore crisis as a tool for courageous change, regaining your self-esteem with self-love and self-compassion.
