  • HOW TO SELL MORE + RAISE MORE
    YOUR SEAT IS NOT OFFICIALLY RESERVED UNLESS YOU RSVP THROUGH THIS LINK: https://generalassemb.ly/education/how-to-sell-more-raise-more/los-angeles/61495 About This Event: "Most of us hate rejection and hearing NO, which keeps our ventures from ever succeeding at the highest levels. Learn my method for rewiring your brain to love NO, and see how this method has achieved incredible results for my clients, and made it possible for me to raise millions in investment capital, grow my first venture to serve 20,000 girls globally, and marshall thousands of volunteers in year one." - Niko Everett Overview: This workshop will explain the science behind why your brain processes NO as danger and why we avoid it at all costs. Niko will teach you a system to neutralize your experience of NO. You will learn why asking for things that you are sure you will be denied helps you achieve the most audacious results in your life. As part of this workshop you will have the opportunity to start the "Going For NO" 7- Day Challenge from which participants have raised six figures and landed first clients. Why It Matters: Those who have seen the most success in their startups and businesses are the ones who were born without fear of rejection. For those who still fear NO and rejection (pretty much all of us!), you can still have the same outrageous levels of success by rewiring your brains to dissolve it’s fear of NO, and subsequently allow yourself to progress boldly forward without limitations.

  • DEVELOPING THE MINDSET OF A SUCCESSFUL ENTREPRENEUR
    YOUR SEAT IS NOT OFFICIALLY RESERVED UNLESS YOU RSVP THROUGH THIS LINK: https://generalassemb.ly/education/developing-the-mindset-of-a-successful-entrepreneur/los-angeles/57793 Studies indicate that while around two thirds of all new business ventures that are launched survive at least two years, only 50% make it to the five year mark and only one third are able to celebrate 10 years in business. The rate that companies go out of business has changed little over time and are consistent across a range of industries. During this event, you will understand the key reasons why so many fail and how truly successful entrepreneurs think differently. Through examples and case studies, you will get powerful insights and come away with lessons that will help you and your business leverage a more entrepreneurially focused mindset. Not only will you avoid some of the many common challenges that new and more established businesses face, but you will understand the phenomenal power of truly embracing an entrepreneurial mindset. These include how to market an idea/concept for little to zero cost, how to be seen as a true innovator in your industry, how to accelerate ahead of your competition and how to get audiences talking about your products and services!
