Tips for Automating Your Business
Belinda Briggs, Belinda Lee Briggs Web Design
“Automation is my jam. Why? Because automation chases down my unpaid invoices, asks my clients for testimonials and responds to people who fill out my website’s contact form. All without me lifting a finger. This lets me spend more time doing the thing I love – designing websites and spending more time with my family. I’m excited to share the ins and outs of how to put automation to work in your business, so you can save time and get back to doing what you love.”

Starting & Growing Your Business
Jenn Holland, Holl & Main
Jenn plans to share her story of starting a business after leaving a corporate job. In her words, “It is important to share my message because my story is different than many entrepreneurs in that a diagnosis of MS is what led me to pursue a dream. I hope that my speech helps people know that they can follow their dream, too, and find their purpose!”
Starting & Growing Your Business, part 2
Catherine Scott, Honest Hazel
“As a solopreneur it is so easy to get discouraged, off-track and isolated. Entrepreneurship is lonely, whether you have a team or not, but if you don’t have a team it can be painfully lonely. I’ll share my tips and tools for how to build community, stay motivated and create energy when building a brand.” Catherine loves sharing the lessons she has learned in both her corporate career and her entrepreneurial journey.
Chris Llorente, SAP
Chris has seen first-hand how his wife juggles the responsibilities of owning a business, raising kids, managing family life and the many other hats she wears. “She sets goals, but gets distracted – and for good reason, but we can minimize, manage and even eliminate some of those distractions. I’m excited to help other entrepreneurs confidently work toward their goals by helping them focus on the outcomes they want to achieve. Time and health are commodities we can’t buy, so we’re going to focus on how eliminating distractions and maximizing your time helps to achieve goals through actionable steps.”
