It’s easy to tell someone to be confident, move on from the last mistake, lock-in, don’t over-think it, don’t fear failure, or any of the many other mental strategies we casually demand of ourselves or of our team. However, it is quite another to actually implement these skills when we need them the most.

The life of a start up entrepreneur is incredibly exciting and fulfilling, but it is also complete with multiple moments that require our absolute best and is not for the feint of heart.  Great reward is often preceded by great risk.  The tough days that don’t quite work out the way its planned, or the “big” meetings that feel like they must be a success can create the same type of emotions that elite athletes go through during their most intense moments in competitions.   

While most entrepreneurs have a spirit that drives them towards this environment even the best of us experience the range of emotions that are part and parcel of the process.  It doesn’t mean that we are weak, or “not cut out for it”, it simply means we are human.  

This session is designed to help the participants learn real life mental skills in order stay focused and confident through the ups and downs the start up process.  These strategies are applicable for the real world of business, and can be continually practiced so that we get better and better at them. 

Coffee will be provided by Sunniva!
