Take advantage of this free webinar offered to you by the University of Northern Iowa Alumni Association.

This week Talane Miedaner will focus on personal marketing.

Talane Miedaner shares her winning approach to becoming irresistibly attractive to relationships, money, opportunities and success. 
Her 7-tiered program reveals how to stop struggling and start going with the flow. How to expand your willingness to have, and to fulfill your emotional needs. How to orient your life around your own core values and passions. And how to indulge in excellent self-care as you let yourself become effortlessly successful.
Learn how to structure your life so you too can be irresistibly attractive. Learn these laws of attraction to effortlessly attain your heart’s desire:
  • “If you don’t need it, you are more likely to attract it.” If our emotional needs are unmet, we repel what we most desire. When we’ve fulfilled our deepest needs ourselves—such as the need to be cherished, the need to be heard, and the need for harmony—we are naturally attractive to potential relationships, both personally and professionally.
  • “Like attracts Like.” When we are fully living our core values, we effortlessly attract others who share our values.
  • It sounds simple. The trick is learning how to apply these laws in your everyday life—and international bestselling author and noted life coach, Talane Miedaner shows you how. This easy-to-follow guide provides a comprehensive quiz to help you identify your top four emotional needs and includes step-by-step instructions for meeting those needs. Once you start embracing your passion and living your dreams, you instantly become more attractive to others. It’s truly the “effortless”; way to find and keep the love of your life or to attract the ideal business opportunity or position.
