LEWISTON — This month, New Ventures Maine will offer tuition-free workshops designed to get a handle on your finances and your personal power.

Building Confidence, a hands-on class intended for people who are ready to tap more of their potential, will run for three consecutive Thursday evenings at the University of Southern Maine Lewiston-Auburn College. Body language, taming fears, mindfulness and retraining your inner critic are all addressed in the class.
