Open Forum: Resiliency, Prosperity, Bootstrapping Revenue Generation

Thu 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM

This casual and interactive format will allow participants to ask questions, make comments, and generally, brainstorm about ways to create new paths to success. With the struggle of 2020 continuing through the first quarter of 2021, hear Gary's perspective based upon his vast experience with his own strategies to thrive in the past year. With a finance and marketing background, Gary can help with practical advice on managing your business to success.

Speaker(s): Gary Norris, Norris Ventures. Gary’s first entrepreneurial endeavor came in his early 20’s; growing a car and marine detailing business from a couple of buckets and some rags, to a thriving company outfitted with a fleet of trucks and enough equipment to service 3-states. From that day to this, Gary has not lost his passion for taking ideas and putting them into action, whether it be for himself or someone else. In 2013, he created and launched Thrive, a finance system and software product to benefit healthcare patients without insurance. After that experience, Gary was presented with many opportunities to teach and mentor other entrepreneurs and from that continued momentum, Norris Ventures was born. Selling Thrive in 2017, Gary made Norris Ventures his primary focus and finally, he was able to devote 100% of his time to helping businesses grow and reach their potential, which for him, is living his dream. His book "Dirt Road Doctorate" has received high praise from business executives and leaders across the country. His second book, "Talk to me - The Unstoppable Power of Conversational Sales" is set for release to the public in April 2021. His other passions include writing, playing his guitar and working on his 13-acre farm.
