    Sandy Nelson Hello to the dynamic women of the Meeting, Convention, and Event Planner Chapter! The past year was full of intense challenges for me - and I wasn’t alone! As a Creativity and Life Purpose Coach I’m always looking to find new ways to improve upon success while having fun enjoying life. 2016 gave me experiences I never thought I’d have, and I learned some new important ways to achieve successful goals. One was that doing the same things likely won’t get you where you want to be in 2017. I’m so inspired to share what I gained I’m opening up my coaching practice by adding a few new spots. I coach worldwide via phone or skype. If you want to make meaningful changes to reach your goals and work with the mentoring help of a coach please email me directly, because I can’t help everyone and I’d love to help you reach your stars! sandy@meetyourmuse.com. Here’s to your 2017 happiness and success! Sandy Nelson Web site: meetyourmuse.com. Author of Ask Power Questions: A Practical Guide to Get What You Want in Business, Life, and Friendship. Blog:
