Impact Hub to Host ‘Business Breakthrough’ Workshop with Jackie Ruka

“Business Breakthrough Power Lunch and Learn,” a workshop led by business and life strategy action coach and South Coast businesswoman Jackie Ruka, will be offered from noon to 1:15 p.m. Sept. 28, 2016, at Impact Hub in downtown Santa Barbara.

Limited seating is available for the workshop, and attendees are asked to bring their own lunches. Coffee and tea will be available. To reserve a seat, attendees must RSVP here.

The workshop includes three tips for wealth mindset mastery, one-page business plan template, brainstorming on how to overcome business hurdles, a Q&A session, and one complimentary business breakthrough coaching session with Ruka. 

Six years ago, Ruka founded gethappyzone.com, a Montecito-based company for personal and professional development.

She is known as “America’s Happyologist,” and is a trained art psychotherapist with a master’s from Drexel University College of Medicine.

“More entrepreneurs than ever before are fulfilling their dreams by starting their own business,” Ruka said. “I love coaching and mentoring aspiring entrepreneurs, CEOs and women professionals, especially when we brainstorm the secret sauce to their success.”

Ruka’s best-selling book, Get Happy and Create a Kick-Butt Life, speaks to the overworked and overwhelmed business people of today. She also has written numerous articles on that topic for a variety of publications.

Her upcoming book, Happy is the New Rich: 101 Success Tips to Achieve Your Dreams with a Mindset that Matters!, will be released later this year.

Ruka has been quoted in the Wall Street Journal’s Market Watch and Yahoo Finance for her knowledge in such fields as business coaching, overcoming limiting beliefs, wellness and leadership, as well as for coining the term “gross domestic happiness.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
