Sedona AZ (March 16, 2016) – The Sedona, Verde Valley Chapter of NAWBO will host four dynamic Verde Valley businesswomen in a panel presentation called “Right Brain, Left Brain – Women Take Creativity & Analysis to Booming Business” from 4-6 p.m. on Thursday, April 14th, at Relics in West Sedona.
Speakers are Linda M. Haggard, Sedona Integrative Medical Clinic; Lori Mabery, Blazin’ M Ranch; Sarah McLean, McLean Meditation Institute; and Karen Reinhold, State Farm Insurance.
These women are successfully combining analytical and creative talents to make their businesses thrive, bringing both their right and left brains to play in business and in life to lead a productive, positive and happy business. They will be talking about how they combine and balance the “right brain” or creative and play aspects with the “left brain” or math, analysis and finance aspects to make successful and productive business.
The panelists will be addressing whether they think women entrepreneurs tend to be more right- or left-brained or be prone to bring a mix of skills to the table. They will address how they developed skills on the non-dominant side of their brains and how to maintain a work-life balance as an entrepreneur.
