Taking Care of Yourself is Taking Care of Your Business
Limited Capacity seats available

We've all heard horror stories about entrepreneurs who fell apart emotionally, physically, or relationally because they drove too hard into the "hustle" and forgot to take time for themselves and their friends and families.

In this session, we're going to hear some real talk about why prioritizing yourself and your relationships is vitally important to the overall health of your business.

How to Become More Coachable (and why you should want to be)
Limited Capacity filling up

Being coachable is about awareness and the ability to take the gold nuggets from a situation and use them to your advantage. There’s wisdom in being coachable. It means you’re paying attention to other people and the experience, wisdom, skills and knowledge they’ve earned and you’re willing to listen close enough to see what might help you on your own journey.--Huffington Post

Are you coachable? What possibilities could exist for your life if you were?

In this session, Chuck will share key steps you can make to become more self aware and open to constructive feedback so you can better position yourself to experience growth in your business.

Managing Yourself: Daily Routines and the Art of Avoiding Time Traps
Limited Capacity full

Running a business often means wearing multiple hats when you're first getting started. With little to no guidance, though, how can you be sure you're using your time effectively and not just filling it with "busy" work that doesn't actually get you closer to your sales or production goals?

In this fireside chat, Fairborn City Manager Rob Anderson (startup community supporter extraordinaire) will talk with Mutt Sauce Founder & CEO Charlynda Scales about the ins and outs of staying focused and prioritizing your efforts to maximize results.

*Please note that although this session is showing as FULL, there may be seats available the day of. There will also be standing room.

Unstuck: Getting Past the Creative Block
Limited Capacity full

Mental blocks happen to the best of us.  In fact, it's impossible to be in business and not have them happen...it's just part of the process.

It's easy to start out all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, but then that horrible feeling of hitting that psychological wall happens.  Forward progress comes to a grinding halt, and you're left feeling defeated.

Whether you are suffering from perfection paralysis or are overwhelmed by the volume of tasks needing to be accomplished, we'll walk you through ways to diagnose what might be triggering that mental block as well as ways to bust through it!
