Caerusnet's 2022 MVPs Share Their Widsom

Caerusnet's 2022 MVPs Share Their Widsom

Excellent recorded event on Jan 27th featuring most of the Caerusnet 2022 MVP Members. Added after the event and including in this recording: *Doug Moffat's recorded intro of his MVPs Keri Middaugh & Mary Beth Potrykus and his comments about being named 2022 Caerusnet MVP Facilitator of The Year! *Kim Lenga from Emerge Fitness (Caerusnet Brighton Wednesday 8AM team) who couldn't be at the event but recorded a video to share.   Erin Veres, Rodan + Fields and Caerusnet Howell Member: "My favorite parts of Caerusnet are the friendships/relationships and that as an entrepreneur, this team kept me anchored in the business world, especially during the last couple of years.  If it hadn’t been for Caerusnet and my teammates, it would have been very easy to feel like I worked on an island! Knowing that I GOT to show up and actively work my business alongside other professionals not in my industry kept me focused on what I do and why I do it. So I am very grateful for this.   Advice? Have fun with this! Yes it’s a vehicle to grow your business but don’t lose sight of personal relationships that can come out of it too.  It’s invaluable!"
