1. We are creating an “Support” Micro-community.  It’ll be a group that will more deeply support one another especially on the days when you feel like pulling your hair out by getting on a zoom call ASAP.  No commitment- get on when you can.  Email me @ toddadams23@gmail.com to find out more.  We’ll probably need at least 15 members before formally creating the community.
  2. Zen Talk # 83 is in the books.  Click here to catch the video, or listen on the podcast app from your phone.
  3. Zen Talk #84 will be Tuesday, April 14th @ 12:00 Central  The link to all future zen talks will be this link–  please save it somewhere so it’ll be easier for you to access. https://zoom.us/j/853203000
  4. If you have any friends that you think might be a good fit for the Team- have them sign up for 1 free month by using the coupon code “friend” and I’ll send you something out of our zen store– just let me know what you want.  Just shoot me an email after they have joined the Team.
  5. To see future Zen Talks you can go either go to the events page on the Team Zen Facebook page, or go to https://zenparentingradio.com/what-we-do/events/
  6. Don’t forget to the get on the Team Zen facebook page (if so inclined)- wonderful questions/answers/resources/inspirations.  Don’t be afraid to chime in to support another Team Member who is looking for some support.
  7. If you have any ideas for Cathy and I do improve your overall Team Zen experience, please let me know.

Keep on truckin’!!!
