I love my hometown. And I love doing live events, especially in my hometown. Add in a collaboration with a small business I love and I’m positively glowing.

My friends at Project House – a boutique business services firm led by two wildly fabulous women – are launching an event series, and I’m honoured to be kicking it off with a Beyond Compare workshop, live, here in Vancouver next month. June 18th, to be exact. (Mark your calendars.)

It’s gonna be fun, intimate, and highly interactive. You’re gonna leave with a whole new take on comparing yourself to other people. (Tip: it’s not always a bad thing. But it can trip you up in some pretty huge ways if you don’t know how to handle it.)

If you’re local, I hope you’ll join us. (And if you’re not, and you’re curious about how comparison might be getting in your way, head on over here to learn more about the full Beyond Compare program.)

Here’s a little more about the workshop:

It’s easy to fall into the habit of thinking other people have it all together. Our culture loves to hold people up as stars, gurus, experts – models of success and perfection. And there’s nothing wrong with admiring and appreciating others, except when it leads us to forget that we are creative, successful and complete in our own right.

Beyond Compare is a workshop for people who want to quit comparing themselves to other people and feeling like they’re falling short. You’ll reclaim the incredible creative power that gets stuck when you fall into the habit of hero-worship or envy.

On the surface? It’s about discovering that the qualities you admire in others live within you.

But really? It’s about becoming your own authority.

It’s designed for people who find themselves distracted by other people’s versions of success — people who struggle to feel confident and focused on their own path, and instead look to heroes and role models to show them the way.

By the end of the workshop, you will understand how to…

  • Transform your admiration or envy into perfect clarity on what you want more of;
  • Make comparison work for you rather than against you; and
  • Turn your focus back to yourself and rekindle your creative fire.

And best of all, you’ll have a template you can re-use anytime you catch yourself slipping into hero-worship or envy of another’s success.

(Psst… the cost is just $35. Yup, you read that right.)
