masterclass personal development Aug 26, 2023
Anamaria Aristizabal presents a Masterclass with Seeds of Tao


We don't become impact entrepreneurs without some sense of purpose and desire for impact. And as entrepreneurs, our level of personal development and mindset is so closely linked to the health of our business, it's important to be always progressing and building our emotional resiliency. Today's episode 131 is the recording of a Masterclass from back in January with Anamaria, where she guides us through different exercises to connect with ourselves on a deeper level and align ourselves with our highest level of purpose. 

You can find the Masterclass recording, with video, in our free Resource Commons. We are now hosting Masterclasses every month, so you can find out the next Masterclass on our site as well.
