SPECIAL NOTE: There will be Breakout Rooms. 

We're all used to multitasking while on webinars. 

We do that all the time. It's usually fine. But not for this one. 

Super Secret isn't a passive workshop. Because it's all about connecting with other people, we ask that everyone be willing to actively participate the whole time. After all, if you want to connect, you've got to be present. 

But don't worry - it will be easy. It will be fun. And it will be worthwhile!

Don't miss this opportunity to develop your emotional intelligence and build lasting connections. REGISTER TODAY!

We'll see you Tuesday, January 16th at 10:00 am PT!
