Well-Being Experience

How did I get interested in


My husband introduced me to Wayne Dyer shortly after we met in 1997.  We watched some of his PBS specials and I found him sharing a different message than I had ever heard before.  I loved my life but I was just on automatic pilot and not being truly present and appreciating all that there was.  

In 2007 when I was going through a particularly hard time at the bank, a book my husband gave me "10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace" by Wayne Dyer and the on-line Course by Eckhart Tolle & Oprah Winfrey "A New Earth" helped me navigate that terrible time.  

Since 2015 I have had the great opportunity to work with amazing LOCAL Well-Being practitioners through BalAnce Well-Being.  I hope you join us for A Well-Being EXPERIENCE at the end of this month to see how truly remarkable they are.

Carla Dawes

Paddleboarding may be the perfect metaphor for Carla Dawes’ work. An emotional freedom and success coach, certified EFT (tapping) practitioner, and a
licensed desire map facilitator who has studied psychology and meditation, Carla guides women through their choppy waters by creating “a compass for the soul.” Through retreats, workshops, and coaching sessions, she reignites the curiosity and courage they need to find clarity, break free of limiting patterns, and strengthen their relationships. At her retreats, she may even get you up on a paddleboard (she is a certified instructor), where you discover the figurative and literal importance of personal power and balance. 

Carla is also the founder of Rising into Resilience, a coaching and wellness resource for the spouses and caregivers of trauma survivors, through which she helps her clients navigate the challenges of dealing with loved ones whose PTSD has overtaken their own lives and those of their family members. Through this service, she helps families heal, rise, and move forward with clearer understanding, nervous system regulation, healthier boundaries, and loving acceptance.  

Having first met Carla at a BWB event, I already knew there is something quickly steadying about her presence and her ability to see one’s inner strength and potential when they are feeling vulnerable or less-than. So I was thrilled to connect with her again and find out more about her life and her work.

Great managers lead their team to success! by Barri Harris

"I'm so frustrated with my team.  We are not hitting our deadlines, and I'm at the point where it's quicker to do it myself than to try to explain it and go through multiple revisions."

Does this sound familiar to you? I’ll bet you’d like to be saying this:

"My team is a powerhouse.  They took the ball and ran with it, with very little supervision needed.  They even found new ways to deliver above and beyond what was expected -- we were recognized for the great value we delivered to our customers."

The difference in those two teams isn't the employees, it’s the manager.  More specifically, the manager’s leadership approach.  Many of us land into management roles because we are good at what we do, but that doesn't mean we automatically understand what it takes to be a great manager.  We’ve developed 3 simple tips for managers to incorporate leadership skills and achieve breakthrough results!
