Jobs Guest Speaker Two people in an interview setting BBJ helps improve your resume Connecting and networking with BBJ


Join us at our BBJ Meeting on Monday, August 29, 2016.

What happens as we age? It seems that disappointments knock us down for longer periods.

Bouncing back is important for health and happiness, especially in times of ever increasing demands, never ending stress and rapid change.

 Resilience is the strength to cope with problems and the ability to adapt in the face of tragedy and chaos. Psychologists learned about resilience from people who survived crises.

The fact is, we are all resilient.  Maybe it’s faded by life and stress, but it’s there.

Bob Kalal

Our next BBJ speaker – Bob Kalal of Kalal Training – will provide some very useful tips on re-discovering our resiliency through finding your purpose in life, understanding what you are passionate about, while taking pleasure in small joys.

Join us on Monday, August 29th to together discuss the skills that can enhance your spirit, and re-establish your personal resiliency.

Our meeting will be held at our usual venue – St. Mark Presbyterian Church in Ballwin, MO.

We look forward to seeing you there!
