True entrepreneurs turn their passions into businesses! Hello Collingwood, the land of entrepreneurial passionate people! In the fall of 2013 Jen and Mike Scholte decided that our local community of entrepreneurs needed to come together in an environment that was both inspiring and enjoyable. We needed a group that was more formal in its purpose with less expectation to "pitch" our businesses. We wanted to find a focus on the being exceptional business owners. Thus, the Collingwood Entrepreneur Network was formed. We meet on the last Friday of each month from September- May for meaningful discussions on business strategy, self managment, servicing our community as business people and sharing the opportunity to get to know one another as business professionals. Over the course of the year, we have discussed such topics as social marketing, staffing, work life balance, how to grow your business, evaluating your potential and enriching the lives of our clients. It is common that our members offer challenges to the group and hold each other accountable from one week to the next. Most importantly it is a celebration of our entrereneurship. A fun and enriching time together. Wow, the year has gone by so fast. Friday, May 31st is our last meeting until September 26th, 2014. Mike and I would like to thank everyone for collaborating and encouraging the continuation of our group from month to month. Together we have made this initiative a success.
Enjoy summer BBQ's, sociallizing with your favorite people, dreaming and re-uniting yourselves with what you are passionate about. See you Friday at the Huron Club. We would be happay to connect for a coffee and chat if you are interested in joining us.
Work hard, play hard and be true to your talents!
