Topic: Key Elements at your work place
Speaker: Paula Springer of Key Elements10 Ways to Ignite Your Workspace Mojo 
(and Turn on your Prosperity)When you walk into your workspace, what do you see? Do you feel good? Do you feel excited to work or serve your customers? Is your office or storefront a supportive and nurturing environment, that allows you to be productive and prosperous? Or is it stressing you out and draining your (and your customers and clients’) energy?Think about it…. this place is the crucible where you are transforming your skills and talents into your income. All too often, we put our time and attention on the spaces that are less instrumental in changing our lives. Could we be more productive, more creative and more prosperous if our offices and business spaces supported us more?  The answer is yes!Paula Springer of Key Elements Inc. is an expert stager and the queen of color. In 10 Ways to Ignite Your Workspace Mojo & Flip the Switch on Your Prosperity, she’ll share tips from design psychology, health and wellness ideas, and mindset tricks that can impact your productivity on a profound level, whether your office is in a spare bedroom or you have a large storefront business.

Bring a picture of your workspace or business for a chance to have a live assessment.

Sandy Actors Theatre

Sandy Actors Theatre’s first show of 2013 is The Last Romance, by Joe DiPietro.  Life mimics opera in this Golden Years romance between lonely hearts Ralph and Carol.  Rose, Ralph’s protective and perhaps jealous sister, tells Carol:  “He’s eighty, he moves fast” and he’s “quite the catch….He can still drive at night.”  Beautiful music is an intimate part of this story, and as Ralph says of opera, the underlying music of love and family ties makes each of the characters bigger than who they are and makes their lives mean so much more. The Last Romance runs February 8th through March 3rd, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 pm, Sundays at 3:00 pm, with a special Valentine’s Day performance.  Tickets are $15 general admission, $12 students and seniors, and $10 children under 12.  Reserve your seats by calling 503-668-6834. For more information, visit Sandy Actors Theatre is wheelchair accessible and has hearing assist devices available, which can be reserved when you call for tickets. Opening weekend, $2 off all tickets.
