CA Extends Mask Mandate and Update on Omicron
With the Omicron variant producing rising cases of COVID-19, the California mask mandate has just been extended through at least February 15.  The U.S. Supreme Court is scheduled to hold a hearing on the federal OSHA vaccine-or-test mandate for employers with 100+ workers (and the federal CMS vaccine mandate on health care workers) on Friday, but the Court has not indicated an exact timeline on when it will actually its ruling. The Cal/OSHA Standards Board meets on January 20 but has not yet finalized its agenda. Effective January 15, the California Department of Public Health has redefined indoor mega events as those with 500+ people and outdoor mega events as those with 5,000+ people, so mega event regulations now apply to a broader number of events in California.

How to Have a Kick Butt Year and Accomplish All Your Goals
by Lauren Sweeney 

Thursday, January 6th | 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM PST

You know it happens every year on January 1 when the calendar resets itself. We create these lofty goals for ourselves such as, "I'm going to lose weight," "I'm going to get a new job," "I'm going to work out every day," "eat healthier," "spend less money," etc. Then, we get one or two months into the new year and we lose traction, focus, and we stop these new healthy habits. 

The reality is, change doesn't happen overnight, and change is gradual! It's those small steps over time that really make the difference. Our fabulous coach Lauren Sweeney will help you jumpstart your new year to set realistic, sustainable goals by teaching you about all goal setting and the roadmap to achieve them! You will leave this webinar feeling pumped up to crush your 2022 goals! 

  • How to be strategic in your goal setting.
  • How to find focus for 2022.
  • Learn the top 4 things that are holding you back and how to overcome them.
  • How to prioritize and how to use a strategic structure to achieve your goals.
  • Learn how to prioritize the big and little rocks on your to-do list or delegate.
