Transforming your corporate experience into a highly profitable business
Don't risk your house, your relationship, your sanity like others do
Are you stuck in a career but want to set out on your own and build a business?
You need to be at "Quit the Rat Race"
Do you have a great business in your belly, but not sure how you get it off the ground -- with the success it deserves?
Come and meet the people who every week help future business successes like you through a business growth process that gets your business off to a great start and also paves the path for amazing long-term results.
Challenge the experts on stage with your particular problem. Where are you stuck? What are you looking for? Why is success evading you? What's the big break youre seeking.
In many ways we see people with significant experience from large organisations having the capability to launch businesses with all the odds working in their favour. Managerial experience, negotiating skills, competitive environment.
However, experience has also shown us the death rate of businesses started by entrepreneurs from a corporate background is near 100%. Don't become a statistic!
Are you stuck in a rut building your business?
Hit a plateau?
Find it hard to get started?
Don’t have the right support crew around?
On this evening we're lifting the veil to show you exactly what you've been missing. What you need to do to avoid the same pitfalls everybody else seem to fall into.
We'll also bring a couple of success stories on stage so you can hear it from people just like you.
Come and learn from the experts who can teach you that it’s not a matter of getting just a few things right. There are literally 100+ important success factors and chances are you don't know most of them.
Not only will you be able to meet these experts face to face, you will also find out what are the right next steps for you to take to get your business off to the right start it needs and you deserve. No matter the size of the empire your'e building!
What is the format of the event?

Finally: The Panel. All those questions you've been searching for answers. Never quite sure who you can trust in the constantly shifting landscape of early stage business? We bring on stage some of the best, that you know you can rely on. Be brave and bring your toughest question to the panel--they like a challenge!
