Lunch 'N Learn welcomes Career and Business Coach Vickie Austin

After a five-year run of giving monthly book reviews at a local bookstore, Ms. Austin is visiting for Lunch ‘N Learn on Thursday, January 8 from 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM and again for Drink “N Think on Tuesday, January 20 from 7:00 – 8:30 PM.  Austin will be discussing best seller Callings: Finding and Following an Authentic Life by Gregg Levoy.

Callings asks us to examine the many kinds of calls we receive – the call to do something, the call to be something.  How do we recognize a call and how to we respond to it?  What happens when we say no to a call?  In his powerful book, filled with the hard-won wisdom of ordinary people’s stories, Levoy guides us in recognizing and responding to a call and translating a calling into action.  This book is a must read for anyone who is trying to figure out what to do with their life.  You do not need to have read the book to participate in these events.  There is no charge for members.  Guests are asked for a small donation of $5.
