    Does starting your own business consistently gnaw at the back of your mind? Maybe you catch yourself daydreaming about hanging your own shingle only to keep finding reasons not to. Or maybe you already are an entrepreneur, yet you find yourself overwhelmed and not creating the business you envisioned. The good news - you are not alone! The entrepreneurial world can be seductive and scary. Join us for a transparent, interactive, and fun look at the world of embracing your inner entrepreneur. 

    During this talk we will have honest, first-hand insights into the journey of going from corporate career to entrepreneur, questions for you to consider before taking the leap, and many tools for your entrepreneur survival kit.

    If you are interested in a space to get real about the rewards and challenges of transitioning to an entrepreneur life, creating an action plan for your next steps, and gaining some clarity and inspiration to move forward, this is the talk for you.
