Your Goal Guide Half-Birthday PartyBooks … they grow up so fast. On Tuesday, Your Goal Guide celebrates it’s half birthday, so of course, I’m throwing a Half-Birthday Party. Join us for ice breakers, a virtual scavenger hunt, and more. Don’t forget to grab your party favor!

Also, to celebrate July as the new January this week: On Sunday’s #GoalChat, we’re having a Twitter Summer Party, Monday’s #GoalChatLive with Pilar Alessandra will focus on Creativity, and Tuesday morning, join me and Jeff Pulver for a #140conf West Coast Networking Breakfast/aka East Coast Networking Lunch! Details below.

This  week’s #GoalChats focused on Self Care. On Sunday’s #GoalChat we had an enthusiastic community conversation. And on Monday’s #GoalChatLive pie maker and author Beth M Howard, The World Needs More Pie, talked about pie as the ultimate self-care activity. Read all the #GoalChat recaps – and watch the videos – on The D*E*B Method blog.
