It sounds like a trick question but its not. We always can look back on our earlier stages of business and see how we could have done better now that we have the wisdom we've gained with that experience. It can be the most exhilarating part of business, but it can also be the most frustrating part of entrepreneurship as well. Walking the crooked line of discovery to get to your idea of success. We're finding through our Entrepreneur Exchanges that our panel of experts see the issues from their experience. They help the entrepreneurs overcome their obstacles, and in some instances, create opportunities beyond what the entrepreneur first anticipated.
On March 31, 2020 we will be hosting another Big Entrepreneur Exchange on from 7:00-9:00 pm via Zoom. In this Big Exchange you will have the opportunity to learn from the deep knowledge that Marrisa Loewen, Jacquie Fenske and Jamie-Rae Pittman will be providing. We hope you will join us to be a participant who shares their business or you can be an observer. Either way this will be worth it for you and your rural business.
Our panel of experts will be Marissa Loewen who is a transformational business coach, creative entrepreneur and a pricing and pitching consulting.
