    ***This is a members only event***

    Love to read or want to socialize with others about great books? Then this opportunity is for you. Get inspired and expand your knowledge on business-related topics while also meeting and learning from other NAWBO members via our brand new book club! 

    We'll be reading books written by female authors, then gather to virtually discuss and share our own insights and related stories. We'll meet for book discussions every 6 weeks or so, and there is no commitment to being part of the club. Simply pop in and participate whenever the book topic or the timing works for you.

    The first book we will read is Undaunted: Overcoming Doubts and Doubters by Kara Goldin, founder and CEO of hint. This book just hit shelves and has already been listed as a 'must read'. Goldin turned her unsweetened flavored water into one of the most successful beverage businesses of our time and has been named one of InStyle’s Badass 50, Fast Company’s Most Creative People in Business, and Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs. 

    Sounds like a great way to kick-off our club! And mark your calendars! Our book discussion will take place on December 3 at 4:30 pm. Join us at the end of the work day to unwind with a cocktail or snack and some casual, fun conversation! Please register on the website. See you there!

    About the Workshop

    Participants will engage in learning and practicing simple mindfulness activities that will allow them to shift their lens and calm the body even amidst the hectic pace of life. Attendees will also have the opportunity to reflect on both the purpose and meaning that emerges from the work they do and learn how to return to them as a valuable touchstone in the midst of overwhelm and stress.

    About Martha Rouleau

    Martha Rouleau was a committed public school educator for over 31 years in the role as a science and math teacher, department chair, and as a middle school Assistant Principal and Dean of Students in the state of Connecticut before relocating to Virginia in 2018. Trained initially as a marine biologist, Martha’s love of science drew her to explore the field of mindfulness in 2007. After exploring research on mindfulness (cultivating purposeful awareness in the present moment with an attitude of friendliness), Martha became a committed mindfulness practitioner from the onset of participating in a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction class. Through the eight -week training, Martha recognized an increased ability to be in the present moment with awareness that allowed her to respond more positively to stressors. Additionally, by cultivating the ability to pay attention through practicing these various tools of mindfulness, Martha experienced less anxiety, stronger ability to pause before responding, and a deeper connection to herself and others. She ultimately earned the credentials as a Qualified Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction teacher after completing the requirements for the credentialing.
