If you’re considering entrepreneurship as a way to take control of your career, find out what your first steps should be in this workshop

About this Event

Many of us have a terrible work-life balance. Especially with the increase of technology and work-related messaging coming straight to our pockets, blurring the lines between work and personal time. This constant struggle between trying to find balance under the pressure to be always engaged at work can really wreak havoc on your quality of life.

The solution to this problem for many seems simple: become your own boss and start your own business.

This solution might also look more attractive if you have valuable industry knowledge, a lot of connections, and/or an idea that a lot of people could potentially want. However, here are the facts:

  1. 20% of businesses will fail in the first 2 years
  2. 45% of businesses will fail in the first 5 years
  3. 65% will fail in the first 10 years
  4. 25% of new businesses will make it to 15 years or more

Only 1 in 4 people who start a business make it beyond 15 years! So, if you’re thinking in terms of a long-term career, entrepreneurship might not be the path for you.

Instead, what you could do is learn how to use entrepreneurial methods. Applying the same growth strategies and tactics in your current role, to give you more control, balance and freedom over how you work, and how your career grows.
