Join us for our casual and conversational Entrepreneur's Circle at The Hivery! This is another way to make sure you're not tackling the business of building a business on your own, but rather with the trusted circle of The Hivery community. This month we welcome nationally recognized thought leader, Nikki Silvestri, sharing her wisdom surrounding the potential for both joy and impact in social entrepreneurship.

We're going to need actual magic and miracles to steward humanity out of the mess we've created. So - as a social and environmental entrepreneur, you need the straightest path to maximum impact. However, we build things in our image - if you are depleted, you will build depleted systems. So - you to need to lead in a way that brings you joy. Join Nikki Silvestri as she shares the Joy + Impact Framework and Assessment, and gets you on the road to achieving more of both.

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. This is a BYO brown-bag lunch discussion. All are welcome!
