Keep your fire burning

Transform this moment by zooming off and finding the inner self that drives the hope within you. Often, this can be found in who, and what, you love and cherish deeply. This will serve to realign that dream and to fan your flames into a great blaze, once more. We at Talk Boutique want you to continue feeling the fire within you, and in turn, for you to spark the flame within others. Our sense-making conversations are put together with the hopes that can continue fanning your flame, and to be a platform that you can turn to amidst these trying times. We do this as our way of thanking you for the support you’ve given us over the years. We have the content, we have resources, and we want to help you continue to stay engaged and continue that dream.

This upcoming week you can expect a similar schedule this week with our Sense-Making Conversations on Friday at 12:30 pm. .

As well as our “Changemaker20” sessions with our Changemakers, from Tuesday-Thursday, also at 12:30 pm.
