    Vital Documents: What, Why & How  

    Are you waiting for the right moment to finally get your “important papers” in order? And just what does that mean?

    Many of us have been personally impacted when a health crisis or an unexpected event occurs. We know we "should" have those sometimes difficult and emotional conversations and take the time to get our documents in order. We worry that we haven't yet done so.  Or maybe it just seems too time consuming and overwhelming. Life is already too busy!

    Consider this: would your loved ones or business partners know how to access your key accounts, passwords and other crucial information? Everyone benefits when you get your (and your loved ones') vital documents handled and you talk with those who need to know your decisions and where to find your documents.

    In this session Suzanne Lourie from Get It Done will guide us in an interactive discussion about vital documents and the related conversations, exploring:

    • is this really worth the time, effort and emotions,
    • the most important documents to have in place,
    • communication skills for beginning the conversation with our loved ones/business partners,
    • strategies to get these crucial documents completed, and
    • helpful resources to guide the process.

    Suzanne Lourie is the owner of Get It Done, a professional organizing and productivity business that works with people at all stages and ages of life to declutter and set up custom organizational systems. Since we can count on life to bring us unexpected losses, helping clients get their Vital Documents in order is a particular passion. Suzanne loves to do what most of us want to avoid: gain control over clutter and find the right balance of how much we own in a culture that makes it easy to accumulate too much stuff. With a professional background as a clinical social worker and attorney, Suzanne brings a supportive and nonjudgmental approach along with plenty of humor to her work.

    So...what I think I heard..." – The positive impact of listening awareness

    "Few skills have more potential for facilitating so many important outcomes -- better relationships, increased enjoyment your surroundings, and personal and professional effectiveness. Spend some time on improving your listening. It makes a big difference” ~Judi Brownell

    Listening is a vital skill. Yet when asked "where did you learn to listen?",  the common response is "what do you mean?" There are several listening frameworks and science to back up the positive affects of listening well. Come learn about your own listening awareness and explore how to improve your skills.

    Employees: Pros, Cons, and Lessons Learned  

    Hiring an employee is an act of trust. How could someone else possibly care as much about your business as you do? Yet, many of us choose to take that leap, not just once, but over and over. Employees are not only essential for business growth, but each individual brings unforeseen benefits. That said, employees are a responsibility not to be taken lightly, and many business owners struggle with everything from properly processing payroll to dealing with interpersonal issues as new people join the team.

    Kelly Klein, founder and CEO of Groennfell Meadery and Havoc Mead will share her story, from a two-person startup to a team of 15, with all the bumps along the way, before opening the floor for a facilitated discussion and Q&A on the subject.

    Kelly Klein is the owner and CEO of Groennfell Meadery and Havoc Mead. They brew mead that is perfect for craft beverage fans: with light carbonation, single-digit alcohol content, and a dry finish, they are smooth and supremely drinkable. She and her husband founded the Vermont company in 2013, and they hired their first employee the following year. They now distribute craft mead in four New England states and have a team of 13 employees working with them.
