WESTON, CONNECTICUT, US, December 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — As we bid farewell and good riddance to 2020 the pandemic changed us all in the way we interact with one another, get educated, how we work, communicate, and live. My Future Purpose LLC hosted weekly sessions featuring special vetted guests who shared the discovery of their purpose and invited others to join in the Wednesday afternoon weekly Pause for Purpose Zoom discussions.
My Future Purpose hosted guests that discovered their purpose by:
• Volunteering for a nonprofit that captured their heart
• Advocating for a cause that spoke to them
• Creating good from a tragedy or personal loss
• Working for a company whose purpose aligns with theirs
• Reinventing self after transitioning from other professions
Vicki Thomas, Chief Purpose Officer and Co-founder of My Future Purpose said, “After 28 weeks as word-of-mouth spread about Wednesday afternoon Pause for Purpose sessions, a sense of belonging swelled with those who joined in. Wednesday’s at 4:00 PM (ET) became a valuable place to learn, be inspired, share camaraderie, and for some, help to shape a renewed sense of purpose.”
As a result of the weekly series success, My Future Purpose will become a membership organization in 2021 providing 40 featured special guests throughout the year along with monthly Zoom gatherings, workshops, articles delivered to your inbox, opportunities to try out new ideas to get knowledgeable feedback, retreats, 1-1 coaching and more.
