Founders Series – Jason & Katie Close “Failed Inspiration to Fool Proof Income: Turning Business Disappointments into Business Breakthroughs”

March 7 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

“We, just like so many entrepreneurs we know, got into business with high hopes and big dreams. Then, we hit the ropes of stalled growth, inconsistent income, and the shock of sudden market changes. In response, we believed harder, clung to ideals, and kept struggling.

When we finally let in the reality of our business structure, the sacrifices needed to grow, and the skills we were lacking, we could transform our business by transforming ourselves. We then developed predictable income, resources for improvement, and a deep satisfaction that inspiration alone was not able to give us.

On March 7, we will discuss how inspiration without adjusted action will frustrate and disappoint. We will give processes for identifying and using your greatest challenges in business to serve your greatest business growth.”

Jason and Katie Close have started, built, and sold a moving company and lawn care company.
They currently run a home health business, coaching practice assisting entrepreneurs make meaningful momentum in life, love or business, & own property rentals. They are happy to share their story of where they were stuck and how the shifts they made turn failed inspiration into foolproof income with which they could build a life, family, and future.

Join us in newly examining your mission, values, and intent as we strive toward stronger business practices and better results at our event on March 7, 2022!
