KTG Webinar: "Is Entrepreneurship for You?" with Nina Pickell


Entrepreneurship is for many people the key to their dream careers - and their best path to acquiring wealth. While the experts agree that either people make money for you or money makes money for you, many entrepreneurs don't start with this perspective. And, they don't know what they don't know about their own strengths and desires, business options, revenue models, assembling resources to bridge their gaps, and so much more. Most start with a dream or an idea and jump right in. While doing what you love is an important element to success, the number of small business failures is staggering because that's just not enough.

In this webinar, Nina Pickell speaks to both the person considering starting a business and the experienced entrepreneur hoping to improve their chances of longterm success. You'll learn more about....

- types of entrepreneurial ventures, income streams, and business systems.
- how to identify your strengths and put them to work for you.
- how to bridge gaps with the right resources and team.
- how to set yourself up for success.

Tune in to learn how to decide if entrepreneurship is right for you!
