2020 Spring Program - Aspen Real Life

Aspen Business Connect has been creating connections and bringing in a much-celebrated community-enhancing entity to our Roaring Fork Valley since 2018. In 2020 we have increased our programming, sponsorships, and partnerships to broaden our reach as we bring business professionals and visiting guests together with thought leaders in monthly inspirational and engaging conversations held at Aspen’s most prominent locations. The testimonials show that these events bring new energy and vitality to one’s life and that the unexpected connections made have been well worth the effort and small ticket price to get there!

Aspen Real Life
Have you ever felt an intense emotion but struggled to come up with a way to put your feelings into words? Perhaps you’re going through a difficult breakup and are having trouble processing the mixture of anger, grief, sadness, and other emotions you are experiencing. Some may be impossible to even identify. Or maybe you’re excited about the possibility of something new — a promotion, for example — but are experiencing something else in addition to the excitement — something you can’t quite articulate out loud. You’re not alone. Describing emotions is a complex and often extremely challenging — not to mention sometimes undesirable — task that leaves many people overwhelmed and even more confused than the feelings themselves. However, this ability is an important one to have in developing emotional intelligence. People can use the wheel to identify their emotions and come to terms with how they are feeling, make informed decisions, seek resolution, gain closure, and, ultimately, become more self-aware and self-compassionate.#selfawareness #love #life #selfawareness #personalgrowth #spiritualgrowth #spiritualawakening #higherconsciousness #higherawakening #highervibes #spiritualjourney #highervibrations #awakenings #affirmations #affirmation #wisewordstoliveby #wisewordsoftheday #dailyaffirmations #affirmationoftheday #manifestation ...

TESTIMONIALS SAY SO MUCH! Thank you Jacey Korus Design for taking the time to write this incredible testimonial. It's rewards like this that keep our passion to connect people together alive! "In the two weeks that I've officially been a member, the Aspen Business Connect has provided me more value than I could have imagined. For example, minutes after I was introduced on the ABC Facebook page, I had two project inquiries from fellow members. As someone who has only lived in the Valley for a short time, I am so thankful that Jillian has built a platform that connects quality businesses and entrepreneurs in an environment that truly values collaboration over competition." ~ Jacey Korus, Creator + Designer, www.jaceykorus.comBecome a member, join our network: www.aspenreallife.com/subscription/ ...
