September 16-17, 2017: 2×4 Live: Seattle

Do you ever feel isolated in your business? Like you know you'd benefit from the energy of a community of people to encourage you, but you don't know where to find them? Do you feel like your destination is clear, but the steps to get there are not? Or maybe you crave the company of like-minded entrepreneurs who can give you honest critique and feedback about the direction of your business?

If you answered “YES” to any of these questions, then you need to be at 2×4 Live: Seattle on September 16-17, 2017. Hosted by Donna Maria and my business colleagues: Kayla Fioravanti, Anne-Marie Faiola and Lela Barker, 2×4 Live launched last year in Nashville to rave reviews. It was such a great event that we decided to host it again, and I would love to see you there! Learn more here.
