JOY KENNELLY OF THE JOY WRITER KICKS OFF GOAL GALS GROUP TONIGHT, SEPT 17 AT LA PIAZZA FROM 7PM - 8PM.
FREE MIXER AT THE GROVE
Six Week Workshop Teaches/Encourages Women to
Set and Accomplish Goals
Los Angeles, CA Joy Kennelly, of the award-winning The Joy Writer PR & Digital Marketing firm, launches The Goal Gals Group, a six-week bi-monthly workshop which teaches and encourages women to set and accomplish goals, tonight, Monday, September 17 at 7pm with a free mixer at La Piazza located at The Grove across from the fountain.
The Goal Gals Group is designed to encourage women to find their true passion, accomplish goals they’ve harbored in their hearts for years, and have support doing so.
Past participants have launched successful small businesses, balanced their professional and personal lives, learned how to stand up for themselves and their goals, and sharpened their career focus.
Goal Gals venue determined by participants.
The Goal Gal Groups meet over a period of six weeks through December 3, 2012 to achieve a manageable set of goals participants decide on individually, while working on them within a group setting. The group meets every other week for two hours. The group is limited to six to eight people to allow everyone plenty of time to share and is closed to new members once it begins.
“Joy is so inspiring and helpful. The way she has structured the group and its process, there’s no way not to take steps toward achieving your goals,” adds Amy Jurist, Owner of the award-winning Amy’s Culinary Adventures and past participant who launched her business in a Goal Gals Group. “Some take smaller ones, but I was at the precipice and with the encouragement and accountability I got out of the group, and from Joy in particular, I made huge leaps in my career and changes in my life.”
The Goal Gals also meet informally in “Study Halls” where participants work on their goals individually while sitting with Goal Gal members in a casual environment, either at a home or a coffee shop. Study Halls provide an opportunity to deepen friendships and can happen whenever any member suggests holding one.
Vision boarding, a visual representation or collage of your heart’s desires, also lead by Kennelly, will be offered as part of the group to help women visualize their success. A final party to celebrate the success of all Goal Gal members will be held at the end.
“Women who join her group may lack the confidence to believe they can become successful entrepreneurs or whatever their specific goal is,” says Kirsten Resnick, El Camino College Professor and past participant numerous times. “Joy creates an environment which greatly encourages and shows women specific steps to achieve far more than they originally hoped.”
Kennelly’s first introduction to goal setting was in college when her father gave her motivational books to read and paid her to write book reports to help pay for college. Kennelly took those lessons to heart and expanded her reading to other authors including Jack Canfield, Napoleon Hill, Deepak Chopra, Stephen Covey, Ken Blanchard, Sark, Chellie Campbell, Barbara Sher, John Maxwell, Seth Godin, Dave Ramsey, among many others.
To deepen her knowledge, she has also taken courses with Motivational Speakers, Chris Howard, Zig Ziglar, and numerous others; completing Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People Signature Program and Stephen Covey’s Leadership Foundation Workshop a few years back.
Carrying on her desire to help women learn how to set and achieve goals and work on some of her own goals in a supportive setting, Kennelly began The Goal Gals in the summer of 1996 while working a 50-hour work week. She began running three different goal groups of ten women simultaneously and launched her successful film festival career from one such group.
She started more groups in 2004 and lead them to great success before stopping to focus on her PR & Digital Marketing business. Kennelly re-launched The Goal Gals while living in Atlanta, GA in 2011. Now that she’s back in Los Angeles, she is re-launching The Goal Gals here on September 17, 2012.
Come join other success-oriented, motivated, smart women tonight at La Piazza Restuarant located at 189 The Grove Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90036 at 7pm for the free kick-off mixer. For more information, please call 310 714-2077.
