Predict Your Entrepreneurial Success Date TBD based on Sponsor Schedule
A 2 hour introductory workshop designed to introduce you to your entrepreneurial talents through an evidence-based instrument that is a predictor of entrepreneurial success.
"I feel empowered to take back my time and have my business work more efficiently." - Lyn Witt, The Market House
Great ideas. The right business model. Timing. Luck. These are not the greatest predictors of entrepreneurial success. It turns out that the greatest predictor of entrepreneurial success is the entrepreneur. Yes, in the early stages of building your business, changing your business model, expanding your business, or launching new product & service lines, you are the greatest predictor of how successful the business is likely to be.
I think that is actually really good news! It means that the greatest predictor of success is entirely in your hands. Take a predictive entrepreneurial talent assessment and hear about what the results mean for you. There are 10 specific entrepreneurial talents to know and use to increase your likelihood of business success. I will show you how to put strategies in place to take full advantage of your best talents and compensate for your lesser talents.
Once you register on EventBrite, I will send you a code to take the assessment online. Your results will be tabulated using a statistical algorithm and your report automatically delivered to you from Gallup. (Yes, Gallup. The company whose motto is: Analytics and advice to help leaders and organizations solve their most pressing problems.) Just print and bring your summary report (2 pages) with you to the workshop.
"It was nice to be in a room with other women who have similar challenges. It is always nice to not feel alone in a very isolating experience of starting and growing a business." - Melanie Long, About Face Training
Use Moxie & Momentum worksheets to help you gain more insight about your talents then design strategies to leverage your higher entrepreneurial talents and compensate for your lesser entrepreneurial talents.

You now have a data-supported reason to actually invest in yourself!)
"Before I took the Builder Profile and attended this workshop, I THOUGHT I knew where to spend my time & energy on building my business. What an eye opener! After this workshop, I now actually DO KNOW where to spend my energy & resources. I have some work to do and I know where to focus & get results that are measurable & relevant." - Rachel Stewart, Circus Meets Boardroom
The Challenge: Spend MOST of your time doing things that will generate the MOST progress with the LEAST amount of effort and the MOST joy
