  • Shameless Self Promotion Seminar

    Learn The Art of Shameless Self Promotion from Jennifer Mason, an expert at making a vision into a reality.

    Your passion, drive and vision is inspiring but sharing it can be tough. Friends and family that thought it was "a good idea" may not support a struggling business. Market conditions may change. Products go in and out of trends based on a multitude of factors, so what gives one business that "buzz" while other great concepts struggle to get seen?

    With over 20 years of experience building organizations, Jennifer has worked with companies from startup to $38M in annual revenue and has found a few things in common with every business or non profit. The visionary, the individual that felt compelled to start a business - and their team - need to know how to promote - and not just the offering. Learn how to actualize your vision, find strategic partnerships and develop your pitch using total strangers. Find your confidence and get tools to help you to find and communicate with your audience.

    $39 per person includes a catered lungh, courtesy of Good Day Catering.

    Schedule:

    10am - Arrive and welcome message

    10:10 - The Art of Shameless Self Promotion - Here, we'll discuss and interact about the topic, what it means and how to apply it to your daily life, your goals and the accountability for striving towards those goals.

    11:30 - Break and grab some lunch.

    11:45 - You eat, Jennifer will talk real world examples.

    12:00 - One-on-One's with me, though the whole class will be listening while they enjoy lunch. Everyone will get the opportunity to ask a question or to request a tip or a resource - 3 minute limit per participant,. This is a speed section so make sure to think about what your main pain point is right now. No limits - this is open to whatever it is you need.

    1:30 - Tools and Resources - We will go through a list of free and paid resources and how to apply them. This section will include take-homes for you to use as well.

    2:00 - Session ends. Thanks for joining us!
