Think you have What it Takes to be your own Boss? - Pauline Penner - NEW LOC'N!

"I’ve been self-employed in one way or another since 1989 and during that time I have come to know many self-employed people.  I have been mentoring and advising them over the past several years and I see a pattern in successful entrepreneurs.  You think you have what it takes, but do you?  This seminar examines the qualities that are required to be successful.  Notice that I didn’t say business skills. You can always learn the business skills you need. This list is about who you are and what habits you have. Changing your basic personality style will take effort. Are you willing to do the groundwork, the personality foundational work, to set the stage for your success?  Come and find out your success quotient."

Presenter Pauline Penner, owner of JumpStart Business Solutions, is an experienced business advisor who helps emerging entrepreneurs navigate the hazards of business ownership, and get on the road direct to success. She offers no-nonsense business advice on how to manage resources, bring in more business, and invest in business relationships. She holds her clients accountable for utilizing the tools and strategies that make their businesses sustainable, profitable, and responsible.

    Is anyone able to provide some notes from this course? I was unable to make it in the end and am wondering if someone has notes?

      Hi Lara. If HOST speakers wish to give us notes from their presentations, we post them on this site. Sorry but we do not have notes from this specific presentation. Hope to see you at HOST soon!

    Pauline's message was clear and concise and helped me come to terms that I have
    definitely been procrastinating and not making use of my time management skills. I
    was inspired and energized to "get back at it" so thank you for this Pauline. Well done!

    Clearly a "rubber meets the road" presenter, Pauline really knows her stuff. She also has heart and a sense of humour. An excellent speaker!

    I know and love Pauline Penner,and I am just beginning her "JumpStart Business Coaching" soon. Pauline is really such a very professional, extremely interesting and informative speaker. Her dry sense of humour is tremendous. Her no-nonsense business advice has added humour, so it takes the stress out of the learning process.
    However, having said all this, and I am the HOST member that invited Pauline, I find that I will not be able to attend. Why? Because my very dear friend, who has been like a mother to me, is celebrating and organizing her own" 90th birthday celebration"......Can you believe it? 90th birthday party and looks 60. This great celebration will take place in the Banff Springs Hotel on September 12.....and I can't miss it.
    Enjoy Pauline, and I know you will all come away with so many new tools and ideas for your business.
    See you in October.
