These classes are designed to build upon the foundation built in the Business Entrepreneur Academy.


Refresh your brand!

Do you have an idea, product, or service, that is needed in the world? Great - but to build trust with your ideal client you need a brand and your brand is more than a logo. In this class, we will walk through the key areas to creating a consistent and clear brand voice. These areas include a brand promise, vision, tagline, and tone of visuals and voice. Bring your preferred note-taking method and your business idea.

Drinks and light snacks will be provided.

I wish I knew about the openness of the community of support that is out there. Other entrepreneurs just like me. Grinding it out. In a lot of ways making those connections have been more beneficial than any monetary insight I may have gained. For me, stepping outside of my comfort zone and making those connections has been the key to unlocking many doors I thought were closed to me.
