Entrepreneur's Circle with Special Guest Vanessa Loder

Looking for a place to share, learn, and connect with other entrepreneurs and founders?

Join us for our casual and conversational "Entrepreneurs' Circle" at The Hivery!
During this monthly round-table, you can gather with other business builders to discuss victories, challenges, ideas, resources, and ways that we can help each other grow. This is a recurring monthly program at The Hivery, all centered around the question "What do you need help with?". You will find that the answers to your questions, including tips, connections, and resources are often available right in the community. This is another way to make sure you're not going at the business of building a business on your own! But rather with the trusted circle of The Hivery community. 


Topic for this Month: Tools and Embodiment Exercises for Clarity. With Special Guest, Vanessa Loder, TedX Speaker, and Co-Founder of Mindfulness Based Achievement

Being an entrepreneur is one of the most creative and authentic acts. It requires courage and perseverance in the face of obstacles (many of which are unforeseen!) and the ability to receive meaningful feedback while remaining true to your vision regardless of what the naysayers say. Sometimes, when we’re on our path, everything aligns with ease and there is incredible magic available to us. And other times, it feels as though the world is crumbling around us.

In this Entrepreneur’s Circle, we’ll discuss the inherent “drunken walk” that every entrepreneur experiences, and Vanessa will offer some powerful tools and embodiment exercises for you to get clear on the ways you drift from your mission or ignore your truth, and how you can more easily get back on track. Using the power of this incredible group of women, we’ll support each other in breaking through to even more joy, creativity and success in our lives and work.

It's a BYO brown-bag lunch discussion at The Hivery from 12:30-1:45 pm. Free for members. $30 for non-members.

All are welcome!
