This course is designed to facilitate a better understanding of how personality traits play an integral role in our lives. Known within the field of psychology, the “Five Factor Model” is a model based on general language often used to describe personality traits. Using the acronym “OCEAN”, assessments based on the Factor Five Model explore the most fundamental basis of our unique personalities by assessing the five following traits:

1. Openness to experience
2. Conscientiousness
3. Extroversion
4. Assertiveness
5. Neuroticism

By gaining clarity on where we fall within each personality category, we come to understand ourselves in relation to the interpersonal and professional relationships we cultivate over time. Our class will begin with a general overview of personality, the five traits listed above, and the importance of understanding our personal traits in context to the world around. We will implement the use of a 100-question assessment, asking a variety of questions pertaining to personal experience. The assessment, which takes about twenty minutes to complete, will automatically generate results to you in a printable format.

Please note: bring your own computer to fill out the assessment, which costs an additional $10. Each participant will pay for the assessment on their own during the class.

Mindy Kelly

I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia and moved to Chattanooga in 2006.  I love my adopted hometown and find inspiration all around.  As a self taught artist, I am constantly exploring new ways of working with materials to create work that speaks to my past and present.  I tend to work intuitively in many layers of paint and paper.  I want people to find little hidden gems in my work that may amuse or surprise them! I mostly work in acrylic and mixed media using my collection of vintage books, magazines, and odd and ends in my creations.  I choose to work in a series to try to explore a single theme to its natural conclusion.  My current body of work is titled Nostalgic Beauty and was originally sparked by my large collection of vintage hair styling magazines. Being in the Beauty industry for almost 20 years you see the absurdity and the advertising of “perfect” to women as a never ending song that is always playing in the background.  Examining my relationship to this beauty propaganda and my part in it thru a whimsical approach and the bright colors of youth is at the heart of this series.  Work is created with acrylic paint, beauty imagery,  and found and created papers. My art is also inspired by the amazing women in my life, an occasionally offbeat sense of humor, and the exploration of love and self.  I love this artistic adventure!

The fact that we use money to exchange for goods and services isn’t changing any time soon. But it is our relationship with money that can change for a more positive flow of abundance in our lives.

In this class we will assess our current financial issues and create an accountability measure around them to shift our financial status, learn powerful tools and experiential exercises to shift our money mindset.

Please join us in this empowering workshop and discover what is blocking you from manifesting more abundance by uncovering your core money beliefs, which in turn influence your sense of worth and personal interactions regarding money.
