The Art of Getting Off

From Vol. 3 Asskickers March 2017

Spring has Sprung! The bees are pollinating, the squirrels are squirreling, and we're tending to our gardens—both literally and figuratively. With that, envisioning long sunny days out of doors, we have a question for you to ponder:  

What if there were a panacea—a magical cure enabling you to:

  • Have more time
  • Increase productivity
  • Sleep better
  • Strengthen focus
  • Be healthier
  • Reduce stress
  • Have more fun

And, the best part—it's completely free!  No strings (or cords!) attached. Curious? 

If so, continue on for the answer as well as a special offer from us.

What’s New at Asskickers
We're happy to announce Getting Off: Unplugging from Social Media and Reconnecting with the Living 
our first 4-week workshop series beginning April 24!

There's so much to be said on this topic and we, too, have been thinking about our own social media and technology usage patterns. Robert claims to be "addicted" to FaceBook while Dianne has resisted all forms of Social Media—until recently, as she's caught the bug and is now exploring LinkedIn and Instagram. We're both seeing the benefits and the drawbacks of being connected. Admittedly, we're all at different places at different times with our tech usage, habits and needs. The challenge is creating a healthy balance, so if this speaks to you (or someone you know), take a stroll over to our workshops for more details.

And while we can't stress enough the importance of unplugging for family time, we wonder if this father may be taking it a little too far.

Tired of Going it Alone?
We've redesigned our website to showcase our new services while making it more user friendly. In addition to our 4-week workshop, we're excited to be launching Asskickers Mastermind Groups. In short, a mastermind group is comprised of committed, like-minded individuals whose primary agenda is to bring the best of each other forth to achieve success, as they individually define it. 

Here are some more ways joining an Asskickers Mastermind can propel you:

  1. Shortcut the learning process
  2. Decision-making
  3. Group feedback
  4. Brainstorming
  5. Accountability

Masterminds are, well, masterful in advancing you on your journey (whatever that journey may be). By joining these ongoing groups, you'll gain the support, experience and resources of all involved. We are now accepting submissions for our newest Mastermind Group: 

Urban Creatives (and Creatives at Heart) who are Ready to Accelerate Their Creative Potential.
