Description

Every day many people leave the corporate world, through their own choice or having been made redundant or been laid off.  Many of these people are looking for an opportunity to open their own business but don't know how to go about it.  This Business Incubator will bring 26 hands-on workshops to those looking to enter the entrepreneurial world.  

In addition to the workshops, there will be breakout sessions for them to actually work on their business plan.  And, to foster these efforts, we have a contest (upsell offer) where they can present their proposal for review by a panel of 5 amazing, successful entrepreneurs.

There will be opportunities each day to interact with the attendees in breakout groups for networking.

Your Health Is Your Wealth!
Brendah Ndebele Coach

How will you manage running a business without burning out?

Your relationship with money
Emily Shull Money Coach

If you have an uneasy relationship with money, if you find yourself repeating the same patterns despite your desire to change, if money feels heavy, complicated, or something you wish you could just avoid, then you are in the right place.

We hear over and over that money is math. That it's as simple as spending less than you earn, and saving & investing for the future. Well it's not that simple.

I believe money is complex and highly emotional. Some of us need a bridge from this emotional side to the practical side of money. This is what I offer.

Money touches every aspect of our lives. It is integrated into our relationships with our parents, siblings, parters, friends, children, colleagues, and of course ourselves.

We are dependent on money to meet our basic needs. It activates our fear center and fight or flight instincts like nothing else.

This is why exploring your relationship with money is so important. Because its benefits ripple far beyond your bank account, reaching every area of your life.

Combining Your Superpower with your Purpose and Passion
James Lam Owner

Here’s a newsflash that you already know - being an entrepreneur and living your passion is hard work.

You, my friend, are constantly pushing limits. Finding courage before confidence, learning all the time (whether intentionally or not) and building something that you believe makes a difference (trust me: it DOES).

Sometimes we lose our way though, and give away the heart, passion, and power that we began this journey with. We begin to doubt ourselves and look to others for inspiration and answers.

We follow reason rather than our heart.

I’m here to tell you one unequivocal truth: YOU MATTER. You matter because you are the business, and sometimes we forget that. Remember that you are singly the biggest shining beacon of awesomeness that your business has.

It matters. YOU MATTER.

… How do I know this? Because I was that insecure entrepreneur with a great heart but gave away my power… over and over again. Join me to learn how to combine that superpower with your purpose and passion to make a greater impact.

What is your sales strategy and tactics
Jason Tracey Coach

How will you market your product or service?

You are Different! You have a purpose, passion, or expertise that greatly impacts people, companies, and quite possibly the world. The challenges are Imposter Syndrome & limited belief level, clarity for your niche community, poor sales & communication strategy, and lack of process.

Shift the mindset to overcome stigmas, seeing sales and leadership as serving at the highest level.  Then develop a communication strategy and processes around YOUR unique personalities, experiences, purpose and passions.

What is your Customer Point of Pain (CPoP)?
Mitchell Levy Credibility Expert

Some people struggle to describe what they do in a clear, concise, and effective way.                                            We've been taught that when people ask us, "What do you do?", we talk about our value proposition. The value proposition typically starts with, "I do this," or "We do that. "The problem is, when you start with “I” or “we,” to some people, you sound like a salesperson and they may tune you out.

They stop listening. Why? Because the harsh reality is, most people do not care about what you do, but what you can do for them and what you can do to solve their problem. 

The Customer Point of Pain (CPoP) is the best answer when someone asks you what you do.  

The CPoP is that specific problem, issue, or concern your customers and prospects have that you can help resolve. 

It is a pain point that they are going through. It's the issue that they need help with. In some cases, it could be an aspiration statement.

Once you have it, you'll have an effective vehicle to reinforce your credibility. People will listen to it, and it will be easier for you to demonstrate that you have the credibility to do what you do. Internally, you will have a new perspective on every opportunity moving forward.

Identifying your Mission, Vision and the name of your business
Robert (Bob) Reish President

Join Bob Reish, award winning coach, as he helps you to structure these 3 critical elements of your business: 

 

The goal of a mission statement is to concisely communicate what the organization does, why they do it, and who they serve. It is a lot to put into a sentence, which makes the good ones all the more impressive.

 

Vision statements speak to the impact the organization will have when their mission is realized. Vision is the far off land. If you ever realize your organization’s vision you are most likely done, and you have put yourself out of a job. It should be that big and far off.

 

Finally, what will you name your business.  The sad truth is that the right name can sometimes make all the difference when it comes to propelling a business to success, rather than just slogging on.
