“Redefining Failure” with Katie Coombs

Visionary

We think we know what failure looks like. Families fall apart. Relationships end. You get fired from your job. Products don't get purchased. Health emergencies make things worse. Projects aren't delivered on time. Speeches don't get applauded. Things explode. These are the emergencies and life’s little disasters that we have nightmares about. We think that failure is the opposite of success, but what if we can envision those failures as new beginnings then we can create a better more fulfilling future.&nbsp;<div><br></div><div>In this exciting class, you will laugh, cry and share personal experiences as your evenings host local author, radio host and personality Katie Coombs helps to guide you through envisioning how your failures can become successes.&nbsp;</div><div><br></div><div>Join us to hear Katie's story and make Vision Boards!&nbsp;</div><div><b><i><br></i></b></div><div><b><i>ABOUT KATIE COOMBS&nbsp;</i></b></div><div><br></div><div><p class="MsoNormal">With a wonderful range of 4 children (2 boys ages 21 and 2 ½, and 2 girls ages 19 and 14), Katie found a passion in creating a conversation about managing the daily tasks and responsibilities associated with raising children in today’s diverse world.<o:p></o:p></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p> <p class="MsoNormal">Katie’s affinity to provide interesting advice, her personable nature, and her ability to captivate a widespread audience with a sense of humor led to the founding of “Uncommon Sense.” The full scope of “Uncommon Sense” incorporates a column in the Reno-Gazette Journal, a bi-montly article in Bliss Babe Magazine in a special “Ask Katie” Column, ongoing blogs both on her own website and Reno Mom’s Blog, and conversation forums with her listeners through her site.
