Here we are in 2019! It took a lot for us all to get here, but we’ve made it into another new year. We are so grateful for everything we’ve accomplished up until now, and can’t wait to see what’s in store for the future. A brand new year feels like a clean slate - we’re ready to wipe old habits, start new ventures, and get out of our shells.
At RISE St. Louis this month, we’re focusing on putting our best foot forward for 2019. The theme of our programming this month is “Vow to Wow: New Year, New You” and our direction for the year is growth. Growth can mean so many things, and we are thrilled to see where 2019 takes us.
We are always focused on personal and professional growth at RISE. Members consistently report how much their lives have been impacted since joining our community. We’re growing our membership every day in St. Louis and will see even more growth in the form of RISE Denver! We will officially open our doors in 2019 and could not be more excited.
During this time of growth, we are learning so much, just as any business or professional does when they stretch themselves in new ways. We’ve been learning a lot about expansion and replication - how can we continue to build and expand on the RISE vision and fit the needs of new communities? One focus we have is how best to communicate about RISE in a new market, so we are collaborating with RISE members who work in marketing and are studying new approaches to tell our story. We’re really excited that the programming at RISE St. Louis this month is similarly focused on what we’re tackling in Denver.
We hope have your eyes on growth for 2019, too. Join us January 3rd, 9th, 15th, and 23rd for workshops led by RISE members, for RISE members all about tackling the new year. If you’re a member, head over to the Member Portal for more information and to RSVP.
