SIGN OF ENOUGH
WITH SARA HART
May Monthly Meeting
"How will I know when I have enough?"  That is the question Sara Hart asks audiences when talking about her special project called Sign of Enough.  She began her project in the mid 1990's, and recently her passion has been refueled as the results of our over consumption and greed become more and more obvious.  

Sara Hart has been involved in helping to develop leaders and effective teams inside organizations for 30+ years.  Prior to founding her own management consulting company, Hartcom, Sara was in charge of Training and Development for the research division of Pfizer both in the US and the UK.  She has facilitated hundreds of groups and presented to scores of meetings.  "Sign of Enough" is one of Sara's special projects that helps us answer the question, "How will I know when I have enough?"  This question became the theme for Sara's downsizing last year.  

In her presentation, she'll talk about the emotional side of downsizing your home until you have just enough, which is discussed in detail in her book The Upside of Downsizing: Getting to Enough.  Sara also offers coaching and consulting for those who are preparing to downsize either now or at some point in the future, providing steps and strategies that will make the whole process less painful.

For more information about Sara and her project, Sign of Enough, click HERE.

When:  Monday, May 20th;  6:00 pm
Where: 50 California 10th Floor San Francisco (one block from the Embarcadero BART, reduced parking rates in Embarcadero Buildings)
Cost:  Free
