Classes, Workshops, Bootcamps, & Webinars

Bootcamp: Public Speaking – The Business Side

Getting paid to travel and share your interests sounds pretty neat, huh? Learn practical, a-ha!, doable insight from someone who was just as inexperienced and nervous as you. Yet here she is, a speaker. You can be too.

Bootcamp: Public Speaking – What & How To Share

What to say and how to say it? If you’re interested in honing your ability to speak in front of others in a manner that’s engaging, memorable, comfortable, impactful, and inspiring, and especially if you’re nervous to be in the spotlight, then this Bootcamp is for you. Focus is on choosing and creating content.

Bootcamp: Self Promotion & Sales

Turns out that Says excels in and enjoys areas many of you loathe, like sales and self-promotion. Let her help turn pain-points into sources of strength, confidence, and productivity.

Field Trips & Recess

M&C partners with superheroes from all walks of life who have gifts to share and either adventure out to their space (Field Trip) or host an in-house experience with them (Recess).

I Can’t: ???

A series where adults state they’re unable to do something, they learn about it with a bunch of other adults who also “can’t,” and they prove themselves wrong and not only do the thing but enjoy it and say, “That wasn’t so bad. In fact, kinda fun. Good for me! What’s next?!”

Life of Yes℠ Workshop: How To Live the Life You Want to Live

Dive deep into the Life of Yes℠ philosophy and way of being. Saya shares personal stories from her life — one of fulfillment and traveling non-traditional paths — and offers ideas on how you can create the life you want. If you’re looking to answer “What do I want to do?” or “How do I get more out of life?” this class will get those wheels turning.

Productivity Class

M&C narrows down the overwhelming field of productivity and shares best practices, philosophies, and specific tool loves.

Storytelling Class

Especially geared for people who feel they don’t have any stories or who want support in unearthing their stories. Also geared towards folks who think public speaking, storytelling, sharing about themselves in front of others sounds like the worst thing ever.

The Sum of Small Joys: Create Your Roadmap

The sum of small joys in everyday life results in a more fulfilling life as a whole. Create a focused and clear direction for yourself — where you’d like to go, what you’d like to experience, what you want more of, what you want less of, whom will be alongside you, and whom you’d like to be. Partake in a process designed to allow the self’s possibilities to blossom.

Webinars

Saya loves sharing her personal and professional experiences and knowledge with others and then helping them apply that information to their own lives. Topics range from productivity to travel hacking to how to create a fulfilled life to storytelling. Offerings are both in-person and online.
