Roundtable - Creating Your Own Path to Freedom

Whether you’re already running your own small business or still in the planning stages, it should come as no surprise that the rarest of commodities is good advice.

Good advisors who want to see you succeed not get their hands on all your cash are extremely difficult to find.

Running a business can be exhausting and it’s incredibly difficult to see the forest for the trees. Every daythere are fires, whether it’s an unhappy client, a product that isn’t progressing towards delivery or a contractor who isn’t delivering as promised. But as a business owner, keeping an eye on the long-term, the big picture, the strategic direction of your company is of critical importance. Even if you’re just dreaming of a solo business, surrounding yourself with savvy, experienced advisors can be the difference between long-term success and failure.

Roundtable is a small group event utilizing our hybrid mastermind approach to making you successful. This introductory session will be designed around an "unlocking process" to help you focus on key pressing issues, the ones preventing you from moving forward.

The freedom you’re craving may closer than you think. Join us and find out how.
