What would it feel like to know that passion you have for your new business can really bring about the stability you want right now – and for the long haul!? It’s more than just a good idea + a business plan to create success. YOU need to be in a good place and YOUR BUSINESS has to be in a good place. Spend an evening with two experienced corporate wonks who turned into entrepreneurs and now spend their lives passionately building their own businesses while helping others do the same.
