NYC (P) - Crafting Your Next Act (CYNA) - In-Person Workshop - May 2, 5PM ET

Thursdays:  May 2 , May 9, May 16, May 23, 5:00PM - 7:00PM

It’s Spring! Time to bloom

Isn't that how we look at a time to blossom? This makes it the perfect time to define what’s next in your life. And to ask yourself if you are longing for a greater sense of fulfillment?

In this small-group in-person workshop, led by TTN member and certified coach Karen Merson, you’ll learn how to get to where you want to be in your NEXT ACT. In four sessions you will discover your core values, special talents and strengths, and learn how to use them to help you achieve the life you want for yourself.

This workshop will help you rediscover your passions and dreams and uncover new possibilities. Rethink who you can be and what you can do in your Next Act – those years beyond midlife. Craft your Next Act that expresses your unique values, strengths and desires. Create a plan for a fulfilled and productive future and live the next best years of your life.

The purpose of this in-depth series is to craft a comprehensive plan that provides specific structure to:

  • Rethink who you can be and what you can do
  • Focus on what really matters to you
  • Reimagine new possibilities
  • Be part of a community of NEXT ACT women
  • Create achievable goals that match your values and passions for the coming year- your best year yet!

You will come away from the workshop:

  • Excited about your future
  • In control of your life – the author of your own life story
  • Free to be your authentic and whole self


You will create the draft of a one-year plan, which will become:

  • Your goals for the coming year
  • The foundation for your thinking and planning
  • Advice for your behavior and performance
  • Motivation and inspiration
