HNG August 2, 2013 Agenda; Speaker on "Law of Attraction: Five Basic Principles to Make Your Career Dreams Come True"

Hello Everyone, 

The agenda for this Friday's Hopkinton Networkers Group (HNG) meeting will be featured by speaker, Joellyn Schwerdlin. The facilitator for this week will be Salpi Sarafian. We will devote the first hour, from 10 to 11 AM to the following agenda: Welcome, Landings, Announcements, New Member Intros, and Needs & Leads. Please arrive early, so we can make every effort to start on time. In the second hour, Joellyn will talk about "Law of Attraction: Five Basic Principles to Make Your Career Dreams Come True."
Law of Attraction: Five basic Principles to Make Your Career Dreams Come True

The "Law of Attraction" is a metaphysical phenomenon which has been around since the Universe was created. When used correctly and strategically, The Law of Attraction will bring you whatever your heart desires, such as more money, better relationships and a career you love. The Law of Attraction received a great deal of publicity in 2007 when the book: The Secret (by Rhonda Byrne) and companion DVD were published.

Joellyn Wittenstein Schwerdlin, career coach and experienced public speaker, has practiced Law of Attraction principles for many years, even before The Secret was published. Joellyn can attest that the Law of Attraction works, because of what she's manifested in her life. She has also noticed that when her clients practice these principles, they seem to land jobs much faster.

Here's what Joellyn will cover in her presentation:
1) Five Basic Principles of Law of Attraction
* Understand sympathetic vibrations: like attracts like
* Raise your vibrations: the importance of feeling good
* Change your mood: you have the power
* Follow four steps to deliberate creation
* Allow the Law of Attraction to work: The absence of doubt
2) How to apply Law of Attraction principles to attract your ideal job and career

She will also be raffling off a book -- Law of Attraction: The Science of Attracting More of What You Want and Less of What You Don't written by Michael J. Losier.
Here's what the raffle winner from Joellyn's last presentation said: "I read the book and put it into action. It has truly changed my life and put me back in the frame of mind that will work for me.
Thank you for your talk and the book. I am employed and got the position I was looking for."

Recap of HNG Meeting of July 19, 2013:

Our 103rd meeting of HNG had 34 people, this is 1 more than the previous meeting; 12 signed the New Member list. Gil Krispien was our facilitator. There were 11 introduction speeches.

We had a speaker, Jill Eastlake, who talked about VyB. The art of creating a resume for every job opening you are applying for can be a daunting and imprecise task. VyB is designed to make this process easier for everyone, and help you get the right job for your skills. Collaborator Jill Eastlake described the VyB product and why it will be of benefit to job seekers as well as finding the right fit for employers. Dan Drop is working with Jill on this product.

General Information

The networking group meets in Hopkinton, at St. John the Evangelist Church parish hall. The meeting occurs, from 10 to 12 noon, and will meet the first and third Friday of the month. The parish hall has a capacity for 250 people and there is plenty of parking spaces in the parking lot and on the street. Around the perimeter of the parish hall are rooms to allow us to have focused network groups or for any other purpose we need. We chose the first and third Friday to allow everyone to attend the Acton Networking Group or any other networking group, if they wanted, on the Friday we do not meet.

We will maintain our close affiliation with Acton Networkers by using the same list-server to share information between the groups. Any e-mails specific to the Hopkinton Networking Group (HNG) will be indicated in the subject line either by "Hopkinton Networking Group" or "HNG"; this way anyone attending these meetings will know the e-mail is intended for them.

We will follow the following agenda items:
* Welcome
* Landings (with doughnuts)
* Announcements
* New member introductions
* Needs and Leads
* Speaker(s), Workshop, or Focus Group
* Cleanup

For those new members who give their introductions, this is what we would like to know:
* Name
* Skills and Value Statement
* Where have you been?
* Where are you going?
* Your title
* Your target companies
* Geography of search
* Name and e-mail address

If anyone wants to join our team, please let one of us know; we could always use the extra help and input for ideas.
