Managing a Business

Wednesday, June 21, 2017 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM
The most common cause of entrepreneur failure is not running out of money, it is giving up too early! Are you selling yourself short and jeopardizing your business success because you are afraid of asking for what you want and need? Do you believe that your product or service is worth the price? Are you afraid to "lose the sale" if you don't negotiate? Self-confidence is linked to our sense of potential and self-respect. Challenge your perceptions and identify what is holding you back. Confidence is a frame of mind and a healthy self-esteem is critical for your business to succeed. We all have the ability to learn and identify what is blocking us. Let's explore how you can break through the barriers that are holding you back from reaching your highest potential.
