As you may know, IBN hosted Mastermind Intensive 2022 recently in Charlotte, North Carolina. As you may also know, the Indie Business Network has a long-standing and successful collaborative relationship with Veracity Insurance Solutions, to provide affordable and accessible general and product liability insurance to our members. Thanks so much to Veracity for sponsoring our most recent Maker Mastermind event!

Sponsored Breakfast and Lunch
Entrepreneurs need a lot of energy. Veracity serves and understands entrepreneurs, so it was important to them that the meals served at the Maker Mastermind were tasty, healthful, and energy producing. Here's a snapshot of what we enjoyed together, including pomegranate energy shots, green salad and nuts, vegetables and hummus and Greek yogurt with fresh strawberries and blueberries, crunchy granola and sweet coconut shavings.
Meet CHRIS Van Leeuwen!
Because of Veracity's support, we were able to be more effective at helping our members get to the heart of what is necessary to build a business that supports the kind of life they want to live. Chris Van Leeuwen (pictured here with Donna Maria), Veracity's Vice President of Agency Development, joined us for an informative presentation and Q+A. Our members got all of their questions answered, and benefited from having the change to speak directly to the insurance agent responsible for securing their coverage.
Thanks to to Chris and the entire Veracity Insurance Solutions team for believing in our vision of helping people build profitable businesses that make them happy and successful, and can generate income for life. Enjoy this video recap of the fun we had at Maker Mastermind 2022.
