    Topic

    Making the shift from Self-Employed to Business Owner


    Guest Speakers

    The Savvy Boss Ladies

    Heather Christison – Finance Boss Lady

    Jennifer Goldsmith – Chief Boss Lady

    Did you get into business for time and money freedom only to find you have less of both?

    Do you feel like you are always putting out fires in your business?

    Does it sometimes feel like your business is built on sand?

    Need help showing up as the leader in your business? We’ll give you simple tips to show up more powerfully in your business.

    How about the money in your business? We’ve got simple tips to take some of the mystery out of your money

    Do you need to bring on a team this year? Learn the different types of team members and the “rules” for each

    Sometimes it feels like you wear all of the hats in your business and that some of them don’t fit as well as you would like. Being an entrepreneur can be stressful and there was no class for that in school. While many of us are clear on our mission and who we serve, the nuts and bolts of running a business can be overwhelming. The Savvy Boss Ladies are here to give you the tools you need to overcome that overwhelm and tackle the ins and outs of Entrepreneurship like a BOSS!

    They will be addressing issues that entrepreneurs face at every stage of running a business. Whether you are just thinking about chasing your dreams, or you are already an established business woman, the Savvy Boss Ladies will provide ideas and inspiration to build a solid foundation for your business!

    Savvy Boss Lady was formed to empower women business owners to turn their passion projects into profitable businesses. Savvy Boss Lady is the brainchild of sisters Heather Christison and Jennifer S. Goldsmith. While working on our own independent businesses, “the Sisters” attended many business development courses and noticed a common theme: very few were giving women in business information about the “hard skills”…you know, the nuts and bolts of how to run a business. We were learning a lot about sales and marketing, and customer relationships, but no one was talking about the ins and outs of the BUSINESS itself. That’s where Savvy Boss Lady was born!

    How to Design Your Talk to Make Everyone Want What You've Got to Offer

    Katrina Sawa

    There are lots of speakers out there talking about all kinds of different topics. What makes YOU different? How can you stand out among others who do what you do?

    If you're doing speaking presentations already or even if you've never done a single one, this presentation will give you some fresh new ideas to get noticed and get booked.

    Designing what to talk about is an art and a skill because you want to know your overall goal from what you want out of the exposure before you figure out what you want to say. If you're primarily speaking for free, then you can often make an offer at the end of your talk. In that case, you need a talk that shares good content but also highlights what you're trying to sell. If you're looking for more paid speaking opportunities, you don't usually make an offer but there are things you do want to make sure you do for talks like that.

    Come to this presentation and learn:

    • How to craft your talk so it’s easier to remember
    • 3 strategies to increase your closing ratio without sounding salesy 
    • 5 ways to capture the contact information of everyone in the room regardless of what type of talk you're giving
    • How to develop a kick-butt follow up system to engage attendees and sell more later
    • How to know when to sell what and for how much to which group and why it matters
