Your time and energy are the two most valuable resources you have. For that reason, workshops with From The Nest go far beyond what you may have experienced in other business development courses. You’ll not only learn the theory and thinking behind best practices, you will actually USE them in real time, hands-on, with support, in a way that allows you to make changes right away.

Everything we do in workshops is hands-on, practical, and down-to-earth because I know what it's like to balance working IN your business while working ON your business (eh, hem... more hours in the day, please?!)

I also know that you’ve signed up for tons of other workshops, webinars, and seminars… I have, too, and I’ve learned that the key to making the most of that investment is ALWAYS what happens after the workshop. That's why I design and present workshops that set you up with concrete, manageable action steps and the confidence, ideas, and energy you need to continue the momentum when you get back to your desk.

It’s time to get brave, DISCOVER your social media STORIES ANd BUILD your network!


I am not offering in-person social media workshops at this time as I’m knee-deep in the process of developing a series of virtual workshops for your consumption… stay tuned to this page for more information being released soon! In the meantime, be sure to check out the Brave Moves Business Series (details below)!

The Brave Moves Business Series

for entrepreneurs on the rise

We are pleased to announce the arrival of a new series of workshops designed specifically for entrepreneurs and small business owners, particularly those in the helping and healing professions.

The workshops within The Brave Moves Business Series have a touch of soul - each one begins with a breathing practice to encourage presence, for example - and our purpose is to bring together like-minded Maine business owners who want to find balance, get the necessary support, and make brave moves in order to build the visibility of their business.

It's time to figure it out - once and for all - so you can start using your time and energy doing more of the things that you love in your business.

After all, fortune favors the brave, and we want you to rise. Are you ready?

This series is sponsored by Essential Living Maine Magazine and hosted by Center for Balanced Living in collaboration with Women Taking the Lead and From The Nest.

 Workshop #5: 10 Steps To Building Social Media Visibility

Wednesday, November 15, 2017

8:30am - 11:30am at Center For Balanced Living in Falmouth, Maine

These days, marketing your business is so much more than just sending out emails and updating your website - it’s a social media experience! In this workshop, Social Media Strategist Abbie McGilvery of From The Nest will touch on 10 topics small business owners need to be aware of when planning their social media strategy and creating content. We will discuss how to use your social media channels more effectively to build visibility for your business, how to simplify and focus your social media marketing efforts, and which simple tools you can use to make your marketing efforts more manageable. It’s time to get the knowledge (and learn the magic tricks) you need to make your social media campaigns more successful and rewarding!

You Will Walk Away With:

  • A clear picture of where you currently are in creating your social media strategy

  • More knowledge about your target audience and what they want and need from you on social media channels

  • A map of your network partners and an understanding of how they can help you get more visibility on social media channels

  • A better understanding of what to prioritize and which steps to take next to build your social media visibility

 Workshop #6: Creating Prosperity By Taking Your Time

Wednesday, December 6, 2017

8:30am - 11:30am at Center For Balanced Living in Falmouth, Maine

This workshop is designed to help you to value all of your time; not only the time that perceivably is directly related to bringing you the money. By now we are all at least familiar with the concept of The Law of Attraction; it is our energetic vibration that draws to us what we manifest in our lives. How many of us really pay attention to that on an everyday basis? We can conceptually use the Law of Attraction to bring in clients, money, and a self-satisfying career. If you believe that you are doing all the right things and it isn’t working then you either need to shift your beliefs, (subconsciously and consciously) or change your behavior. When we pour all of our energy into building our businesses, taking care of our families and relationships; we often forget that our primary relationship- the one we have with ourselves- is lacking. We want to live a life of abundance in our most important relationship, the one with ourselves.  

You Will Walk Away With:

  • A self-care plan with your personal non-negotiable, “must-do” list

  • A list of support people and/or mechanisms to help you create some new self-care habits

  • Specific tools to use to unwind, disconnect and reconnect

  • A different way of perceiving “slow periods” and “no shows”

  • An attitude of gratitude for the abundance in your life
