Manifest Your ALL in Life & Business!
Amanda Slade Evolution Catalyst

YOU are meant to thrive and prosper in your life and business! You are here for a reason and have a mission to fulfill. However, many were taught, conditioned, and programmed that they had to “work hard for the money”, and to suffer and struggle in order to attain success. Not True! 

During this talk, you will …

  • Understand the science and spirituality of manifestation and the importance of clarification and focus upon your intentions
  • Learn what energetic blocks you may have to your money flow and prosperity
  • Discover ways to energetically align with your intentions and success

In addition, you will receive a Manifestation tool from Amanda’s proprietary Diamond Co-Creative System® as a gift to you! She will share with you how to use it, and how to increase your reach to your ideal clients or customers, to flourish in your prosperity, and to attain success in all aspects of your life and business. 


This is such a great way to up-level your business and set your Self up for expansion and success!

Why does Building Sacred Economies Matter?
Andrea Leigh Austin Building Sacred Economies in the World

Sacred Economies in the world is about bringing love and coherence back into business. 

In a state of greater coherence, we bring love to our creations from a place of wholeness rather than fear, scarcity, lack, and loss. In a state of greater coherence we are able to attract and succeed at deeper levels not only within ourselves but also with those that we serve.

During this time each of us is going to tune into what money means to us, how does it make us feel and why does it matter so you can tune into coherence for you.

  1. discover myths of using humor in your business
  2. learn the benefits of humor in business and
  3. explore  some practical tips for using humor in business

By embracing humor in your business, you can: 
Increase conversion of leads and higher revenues. It has been said that “Funny is money”. If you engage your prospects more whether in person or on Facebook, more of your leads convert to sales. Sales results in greater revenue for the company.

Build relationships: Laughter helps bond with your prospect, customer, employee and others in business relationships. People do business with those they know, like and trust. Humor helps accomplish all three.

Increase the retention of the listeners: audiences listen more to presentations, videos and online video courses that include humor. Better listening leads to better retention of the material.

Keeping audiences awake and engaged in meetings and presentations: audiences tend to tune out. Watching a “skateboarding cat” on a phone can be more engaging than a dry, boring speaker. Humor helps keep the listeners engaged.

Boost Morale : Face it, employee retention is a big concern among businesses. A fun workplace leads to happier employees, less employee turnover and less downtime.
