The constant noise around us these days can be distracting and deafening. Making mindful choices about what, who and how we interact with the world around us is critical. Now is the most opportune time to thrive; to progress toward or realize a goal despite the circumstances. Looking for the purple photo on your phone is a waste of time. It has been proven time and again, those that focus and drive forward during the difficult times, come out ahead when the wheels start rolling again. Where do you want to be when the it is time to push the gas pedal?

“Cash Today: What Can You Do Today to Create Revenue in the Next 90 Days?” with Molly Wendell, CSP, MBA
To say that times are not simple right now is an understatement. But just because people aren’t buying the products and services you THOUGHT they would doesn’t mean people aren’t buying anything. In this session we’re going to figure out what other products or services you could create that will bring in cash today… and, in turn, build a new future with a whole new suite of offerings for you tomorrow!
THURSDAY, MAY 7 – 7:00 pm (Part 2 of 2)
“Turning Your Content to Cash” with Molly Wendell, CSP, MBA
What do you know that you can turn into an online product? Do you know who is buying online courses? Your customers. Maybe you’ve been thinking about creating some type of online product – a course, a membership site, some group coaching. But the time just wasn’t right. You weren’t ready. Here’s the truth: You will never be fully prepared and ready to build an online product. It’s the kind of thing you just have to start. But how? In this session we’ll talk about what it takes to build your online product. Most importantly, we’ll get you started… so that you can be that much closer to finishing! And if you don’t have an online product to sell, your customers will find someone who does.
MONDAY, MAY 18 - 12:00 Noon
“Webinars are NOT Virtual Presentations!” with Don Jenkins
Don is a Chicago Vice President for National Speakers Bureau, and he wants us to NOT suck at virtual!

Don will share the techniques of what virtual speaking professionals are doing right now to earn the business and the title, and what you need to know to “up” your game to compete and win.
