Dear Friend: 

Did you know Career Strategists president Renee Trudeau owns a sister company devoted 100% to life balance?  Renee Trudeau & Associates is a six-year old company offering Life Balance Teachings & Tools for Everyday Life (check out our brand new web site here).

Work-life balance (and actually balance on all levels) is essential to career satisfaction, to experiencing a sense of meaning and purpose on the job, to feeling a sense of joie de vive about your work life and to experiencing overall physical and emotional well-being.  But too many of us put balance at the bottom of our to-do list.

We invite you to explore the award-winning articles, blog, events, resources, tools and videos on the new Renee Trudeau & Associates web site -- especially the f.r.e.e. life balance newsletters and teleclasses under Resources.  Let us know how we can support you (read more about why support is essential to navigating our career/life path!).

Warmly, Renee, Angie, Sarina, Angela, Dana and Kat

P.S. In Texas and want to extend spring break into next week?  You won’t want to miss Nurturing Your Soul: An Evening of Self-Renewal – a mini retreat and workshop for parents on 3/20 from 6-9 p.m. at Mercury Hall.  Learn more.
