Join business growth expert Rick Miller and Morris Meetup founder John Carini for a 2020 Kickoff workshop on how to increase your entrepreneurial power and apply that power to raise more money and run a more effective business!

If you believe, as some do, that power is all about title, position, authority, and control, you’ll find it a challenge to increase that kind of power. Entrepreneurs can give themselves any title or position they want. Ask any successful entrepreneur how much time they spend thinking about this type of power and they will laugh. Because the answer is zero.

But ask successful entrepreneurs about the importance of energy, clarity, confidence, impact, and influence, and you’ll get a very different response. The best entrepreneurs know their success is almost totally dependent on this definition of power, and successful entrepreneurs have more of it! Do you want to hear about how this type of power helped a startup raise $85M during the last NASDAQ crash?

Join Rick and John on Tuesday, January 28th for a great kickoff to 2020 and learn how to INCREASE YOUR power, SPREAD that power to your teams, and run a better business. If you are a student, you’ll learn how to be a more powerful “Chief” before you even show up for that first interview.

Go to to take a 5-minute quiz.
