This practical workshop gives a basic overview of the entrepreneurial mindset, processes, and tools you can use to develop your aspirations.

Whether you launch a business or side-hustle, or lead a department within a shop or company, your understanding of strategic planning, budgeting, marketing, and management,will provide greater opportunities for success in your future career.


Workshop Format

Given the scope of our workshop, topics are presented in a condensed manner to be most efficient with our time.  As a result, I focus on breadth rather than depth, covering the most critical and essential information necessary to achieve your learning outcomes.  At the end of the day, it's more important that you know what questions to ask and where to look for information rather than know the answers.

We will draw on the required reading, videos, podcasts, interviews, articles, and other media to illustrate concepts and examples covered in the workshop.

Teaching Philosophy

  • This workshop is an opportunity. Take advantage of it. I am here for you as your instructor, resource, and guide.  Connect with me in between sessions to receive instruction that is customized to you and your needs.

  • I don't lecture. I facilitate your knowledge of concepts, present information, and provide tools for you to act on.

  • Be curious, open and critical.  Embrace a diversity of viewpoints and ways of knowing. When you are learning something new, don't dismiss a concept out of hand without first seeing its merit. Then, test it in real-life and form your own opinion.  

  • Yes, you can.  I believe in building your confidence and know-how so you can use your creative talents to craft the career you want.

  • My success is based on the impact I have on yours.  How will you measure your success?
