Now that the holiday cobwebs have been adequately cleared out, most are at least approaching full speed in the New Year. Here at CoMotion, January has already been nicely filled with events and activities. For entrepreneurs, these busy days are nicely complemented with opportunities for professional development.
When people ask me what it’s like to work out of CoMotion, many are surprised by the amount of professional development opportunities that are available. In many cases, outside groups host their meet-ups and sessions here; in other cases, members offer development services and training for fellow members and the public. Given the diverse makeup of businesses here, it’s great hub for knowledge sharing.
Rolling into Momentum Mondays.
A couple new professional development offerings have caught my eye. First up are the Momentum Mondays with Chris Wilson. I’ve had the good fortune of getting to know Chris over the past couple of years. And I wouldn’t be overstating it to say that he’s a go-to-guy when it comes to navigating the rigors of entrepreneurship. I find he has a great perspective on how working to maintain balance in your life optimizes performance. Chris is, by nature, a very approachable guy to talk to. If you’re a CoMotion Member, I highly recommend checking out one of his sessions.
Get your biz started with Grit Starter – Wednesday January 29th – 7:00pm.
This is session, hosted by member-and-business-coach, Lorenzo Somma, offers some guidance to those with start-up and/or entrepreneurial aspirations. Many say that getting a small business up and running is one of the most challenging and demanding exercises it will face…before facing more challenges on most of the days thereafter. This two-part session will help you get the ball rolling – helping you build a business model and develop your Value Proposition.
You can sign up for this free event here.
There are plenty of opportunities here at CoMotion to participate in a host of events every month. While some events are exclusive to CoMotion Members, there are plenty that are open to the public. These are a perfect opportunity to soak up some knowledge and check the place out!
