Cultivating A Successful Home Business

With Bill Whyte, Badger Balm, Gilsum, NH
Saturday October 25th, 10am-4pm. Suggested Donation $20-35. Lunch provided.

In my opinion, “visualizing the ideal” is one of the most important steps in building and cultivating a successful business. It’s so easy to get caught up in dollars and numbers and how busy we are that this important and extremely practical step is often neglected. Visualizing the ideal is a business plan of the mind that takes into consideration spirit, people, planet, family, health, fun, kindness, generosity, financial success and invisible forces! The focus of this workshop will be helping you to create your own personal plan by working with case studies, storytelling, art, visualization and creative business problem solving systems. Ideally, you’ll leave with an improved vision that will help you make your business more successful and rewarding.

Artisan Bread Baking

With Noah Elbers, Orchard Hill Breadworks, Alstead, NH
Sunday November 9th, 1pm-4pm. Suggested Donation $10-15.

What is the secret to making bread with excellent taste, texture and crust? The answer to this question will be explored and discussed over an afternoon of smelling, tasting, mixing, and baking. You’ll hear a brief history of traditional bread making, observe effective hand mixing techniques, and learn about ways to bake delicious artisan bread in a home oven. No experience required.
