If you’re thinking of starting your own business or even if you already have, join us this September for three special event classes offered by well-know entrepreneurial mentor and advocate, Barbara Winter. Barbara literally wrote the book on joys and challenges of the entrepreneurial lifestyle: Making a Living Without a Job. She’s been living the life herself for several decades, and never ceases to be an inspiration to those interested in doing the same.
If you’ve never been lucky enough to attend one of Barbara’s seminars or the annual Un-Job Fair that was her brain child along with CFU president Helen Hand, then you’re in for a special treat. Barbara’s classes are quite above and beyond typical fare for entrepreneurs like business planning or setting up your taxes correctly. Sure these things are important, but Barbara focuses on the heart of the matter–why entrepreneurs strike out on their own and the scary-wonderful stuff that it takes to go and stay there. She is an bottomless source of inspiration, support, and considered advice on what it takes and costs to live and work in your life on your own terms.
To get an idea of Barbara’s style and insights, take a jump over to her website and read a blog post or two. I was particularly moved today by one that came out in July called A Step Back that acknowledges the struggle of finding your meaningful work, while inspiring you to jump right in and do it now! Browse her site for more wisdom like this.
And if you like what you see, you’d be silly to miss the chance to join Barbara Winter, live and in-person here at CFU on September 26 and 27, 2014 for one or all of three entrepreneurial workshops she’ll be offering: Making a Living Without a Job, Establish Yourself as an Expert, and I Hate Marketing!: Practical Ideas for the Marketing Phobic with Barbara Winter. Listening to her in person is like stumbling into a goldmine for entrepreneurs–don’t miss out!
