"Life shrinks and expands in proportion to one’s courage" – Anais Nia
Sponsor Inside Skinny
I cannot believe this will be my last Sponsor Skinny! It has been a true pleasure working with all of you and I hope we stay in touch. If you hadn’t heard yet, I have been tapped for the opportunity of a lifetime to be the President of a growing, global media company, Intentional Media. The company’s brands are all social impact oriented, next generation businesses and women focused and read like my CV. My new email is email@example.com with my cell phone remaining the same. You are in incredible hands with Kim, Erin and Asa. The wheels keep turning and Watermark has some terrific events coming up!
As a founder, whether you are "Entrepreneur, party of one" or have built a team of people to share your vision, there are certain skills you have to acquire and hone quickly. After all, this is your idea, your leadership. Our subject is Founder's DNA - what does it take to not only have the dream, but make it successful.
This unique webinar will provide you the opportunity to learn from someone who wrote the book on the subject and who will moderate an incredibly live panel of leading business leaders. Below are the questions and exercises we encourage you to share with your colleagues to discuss in association with the webinar:
Transitioning from being on someone else's payroll to be your own boss requires more than just bravado. What are some of the necessary skills or habits needed to make this leap?
Before you think about tackling the marketplace, think of ways you can and should use your network and community around you to build and promote your idea?
Even Steve Jobs failed - he failed hard! What can you do when faced with hurdles and obstacles in your way? How do you overcome failure?
Influence. Founders and Entrepreneurs need to be great at pulling people around them into their environment and supporting the business. What do you think about when faced with the idea of influencing and encouraging others to help you build your dream?
Cobbler's kids have no shoes. Most people are terrible at promoting ourselves and our ideas. Who do you have in your life or where can you find smart resources who can help you promote you and your business?
We'd like to thank you for your support and partnership. One of the best ways we can do this is to share new insights, thinking and innovative tools. Please join us for, “A Seat at the Table”, for an exclusive look at our new VR IP created with Equal Reality. You will be the first to experience this exciting new IP intended to uncover unconscious bias and have the tough conversations that follow in a no-shame no-blame manner. This will be followed by an in-depth demo of our new digital education platform, The Learning Center, which allows our global sponsors to have content available real-time worldwide.
We will also have a sponsor Q&A featuring two Watermark sponsor contacts discussing best practices for taking advantage of your Watermark contract, and all that we have to offer.
Add to this great company, networking, food and wine, and you've got yourself an amazing evening celebrating you - our sponsors - hosted at Equinix.
