Lunch and Learn 

WIFS Portland Metro is very proud to announce our January Lunch and Learn with Yasmin Nguyen:


How to design at least 52 days of freedom, joy, and connection into your work and life this year!

In this talk, he will share with you specific, actionable strategies you can use to release FOMO and become a MOFO (Manifestor of Fantastic Opportunities). 

Yasmin Nguyen is a thought leader, speaker, podcast host, and veteran entrepreneur of 17 years.

He specializes in helping business leaders design more freedom, connection, and joy in their work and life through a self-care program called Retirement Day Practice™ and an actionable Gratitude Practice.

Working with him through mentorship and training programs, leaders show up more energized and present while experiencing more happiness and wellbeing at work and home. Companies boost their employee performance, retention, resilience and profitability implementing such practices.

He is committed to inspiring over 1 million acts of gratitude this year through his Gratitude Hacks podcast, collaborations with influential leaders, and mobilizing passionate ambassadors to grow magnificent relationships, businesses, and communities.  

 In 1978, at the age of 5, he, his   mother, grandmother, and two   younger siblings snuck through   the jungle to board a small fishing boat. Fleeing Communist controlled Vietnam, they were rescued at sea as their boat sank 

to the bottom of the ocean.  He could never have imagined that 40 years later, he would be building businesses and inspiring communities to shift their lives to experience more love, joy, freedom, wealth, and community. Join him as we: “Create from a place of inspiration. Share from a place of love. Live from a place of gratitude.”

Because of limited seating and to respect the kitchen at Portland City Grill, we cannot take registrations at the door for lunch.

Please note: PayPal offers a "Buy Now, Pay Later" option.  This is an application for credit through PayPal.  It is not an offer to pay for your event registration at a later date. You must complete payment for your registration at this time in order to guarantee your place. 


One of the ways we are able to keep costs reasonable for our members is by committing to our venues a specified number of attendees for each event. This allows better planning on both our parts.

While we understand that last minute issues can come up that may require you to miss an event after having already registered and paid, we, unfortunately are not able to offer refunds. If we receive and acknowledge your cancellation at least 7 days prior to the event we will credit the price towards a comparable event in the future.
