If you look down your street, every second or third neighbour owns their own business. They’re not necessarily manufacturers with 50 employees that you’d find at a chamber-style expo, or tech startups with angel investors you’d find in a tech summit. Instead, many are entrepreneurs like you and I: web designers, marketers, retail shop owners, self-publishers, makers, photographers, lash extension technicians, boutique florists, event planners, music teachers, dance studio owners… you know; the majority.
For as long as there have been businesses, there have been business expos. This one is about inspiring and featuring the majority of the community of entrepreneurs next door.
The #EntrepreneurLife is a way of life filled with people who don’t think like everyone else. They would rather work 24/7 for themselves than serve someone else from 9 to 5. They’re the kind of person you can reach out to at 8pm on a Friday to help with a project idea and after an hour or so of brainstorming you’ve dreamed up something pretty damned amazing.
If you’re an entrepreneur, you are one of my very favourite humans in the world, and as such, this is for you.
