About this event

Building a Business Growth Mindset

 As a business owner, having an awareness and understanding your mindset can be the difference between success and failure.

 Join this event to take a deep dive into The Power of Mindset. We’ll be looking at how our mindset is formed and influenced to understand why different situations feel comfortable or not. You’ll come away with a deeper understanding of your own mindset, where it may be holding you back, and the tools and techniques you need to take the next uncomfortable step.

 • The Importance of Mindset

• Growth v’s Fixed Mindset
