What we're about

Lean Startup Seattle is for anyone interested in the application of Lean Startup Principles and the Customer Development process developed by Steve Blank and refined by Eric Ries. We are bringing the Seattle Lean Startup community together in a variety of formats to learn from each other. What works? What doesn't? Is lean just a buzzword? Or can it really help build businesses?

"The Lean Startup movement is taking hold in companies both new and established to help entrepreneurs and managers do one important thing: make better, faster business decisions." ~ Eric Ries (http://theleanstartup.com/)

"I'm a big fan of Lean Startups as well as "focused meetups" (vs. the come one / come all approach) so consider me a big fan." ~ Brad Feld (http://www.feld.com/wp/about)

"I think it's well understood that I am a big fan of the lean startup methodology" ~ Fred Wilson (http://www.avc.com/a_vc/2011/05/startup-lessons-learned.html)

Pressure Free Profits: Get high ticket clients w/o high pressure sales tactics.

In this workshop, you'll learn:
How to get as many high ticket clients as you want, without feeling like a pushy, manipulative, used car salesperson.

How to develop your authentic voice in thought leadership, rather than spam out marketing stuff that feels off-kilter for you and your ideal client.
And how to design your business so that it supports YOUR ideal life, and allows you to have a real, positive impact on your world.

Join us for a 30-minute interactive workshop, and then a hot seat session where you can get custom feedback from Katie McManus, on your client acquisition strategy, how to market your services authentically, and how to feel comfortable asking for more money.

To apply for the hot seat, you must email Katie by June 5th @ [masked] {Subject line: Hot Seat} and describe what your challenge is and confirm your attendance to the event.
