The Founding Moms' Exchange: Chicago!

Melissa Ford will be joining us to discuss Taking the SOCIAL Out of Your Business to Create Wealth!

You're a business owner with a great idea, product or service. And at the outset of your entrepreneurial adventure - YOU WERE EXCITED! Then as the shiny newness of your business wore off and you struggled to grow your profit margins or even make a profit, you may have been left wondering . . .

  • How come my passion is more a hobby than a business?
  • Where are all the clients/customers I’d really love to work with?
  • Do I really have what it takes to make this business thrive?

Looking for the answers to our business woes, we often look outside of ourselves to the  online and offline tools and strategies touted as the must-haves of all successful enterprises. We rework and practice our elevator speech. Amp up our social media marketing. Run from networking event to networking event. Fret over our brand, redefine our niche market and spend countless hours engaging and interacting with our online audience to build our likes, shares, tweets and pins.

INSTEAD . . . What if we s-l-o-w-e-d d-o-w-n and considered one compelling question:

Do you show up in your business as the SOCIAL YOU or the PROFESSIONAL YOU?

Your answer is vitally important because if your social self is running your business then creating clients/customers and growing your bottom line will be next to impossible.

Join Melissa Ford to learn this key distinction and how stepping up from your social self into your professional self is an important mind-shift for all successful entrepreneurs.
