Lessons in Entrepreneurship:Pursuing Your Passion Without Losing Your Sanity with Shannon Kinney
Shannon Kinney will share her entrepreneurial journey with us from starting her business as a single mother in her garage in 2009, taking a $200,000 a year pay cut to follow her passion and risking all of her savings!
Her company has grown from a $32,000, one person business into a thriving, $600,000 business with 26 employees in over four different markets across the country.
Shannon will share her story and will take us through her step by step formula to apply to your own business or career by: following your passion, taking massive action, having the persistence and fortitude to see it through and not ever giving up on your dream…even when others insist that you do!
This is a MUST-ATTEND presentation!
