Members of the Idea team recently attended a great event hosted by Yorkville PAY!

The Yorkville Area Chamber of Commerce’s PAY Program is an organization that was started to help professionals in the area grow personally and professionally. Idea’s president, Darren Fox, is co-chair of the PAY program, alone with Sarah Allen. The members of the PAY program work together to provide programs that stimulate career motivation and career development.

The PAY program just recently held an event on Friday, October 6th entitled “Breaking the Barrier of Work/Life Balance”. The event was held at the Chamber office in Yorkville from 9am-10am. Chamber member, Yorkville Auto Body, provided free breakfast to attendees, and guest speaker, Mary Ann Griffith, gave an enlightening presentation.

Mary Ann Griffith is a licensed clinical professional counselor and is the founder of Haven counseling. Haven counseling is a non-profit organization who aims to provide the people of our community with high-quality counseling services that foster healing and growth. Mary gave a motivating presentation and offered advice on how to create and maintain a healthy work-life balance. Everyone was handed a guided pamphlet with helpful tidbits of advice, and almost everyone there was jotting down notes and soaking in all of the helpful information.

Thank you to everyone who came and took time out of their busy schedules to join us!
