This weekend has offered me so much of how to connect with the clients I’m seeking out, and how to build those relationships and continue those relationships. I’ve already received great referrals and relationships from this group.

You’ll leave with a community-building plan.

Onward is focused around workshops in heart-centered business building, marketing strategy and connecting with other transformational entrepreneurs. We’ve got five incredible workshops lined up for you. Each will explore how to build community from a different angle: from turning clients into evangelists, to making colleague-friendships, to listening to the needs your community has. By the end you’ll be an expert on building community and have at least three-months of material to take action on. Our aim is to set you up for success in running a long-term business. Read below for more details!

Headlining Workshops

Creating True Fans Who Share Your Work

What is it that makes a yoga student bring her friend to class? Why do some companies get shared wildly and others seem hidden? In this workshop Noé will lay out a map for how to structure your business so that fans can speak to one another, build community, bring new people into that community and return again and again.

Building this structure is going to take effort on your part, but with the right mindset, plan and action, you can build your business to be shared. This workshop will give you the groundwork and personal attention (from Noé and the group) to take action and see results.

Using Your Community To Grow Your Business

Let’s be honest – as heart-centered entrepreneurs, we’re often struggling against a pressure from the traditional business world to sell, sell, sell. But deep inside we know there has to be another way to build a thriving business. There 100% is. It turns out being “salesy” will actually push away a lot of your community. Selling is an activity reserved for only one small part of your community, the clients.

In fact, your existing community is choc full of other people who want to connect with you on multiple levels. From colleagues to friends & family to mentors & experts. This workshop will give you the opportunity to create a strategy for each type of relationship. When you start taking action, your business will grow like never before.

GUEST SPEAKER WORKSHOPS

ERIN: FINDING PURPOSE THROUGH COMMUNITY

Erin Moon and I are live talking about running a wellness business, deconstructing "purpose", and getting down to how your community can help you find your path.I'm so excited because she'll be facilitating a workshop on community, purpose and business at Onward: The Heart-Centered Entrepreneur Summit. Check out the live stream here.

Posted by Noé Khalfa on Friday, September 8, 2017

Your community is speaking to you all the time. They’re telling you which genuine problems need solving, and where to put your business efforts. How do you listen for and learn to trust the areas you’re being asked to play in? We’ll be looking at the long game. How our purpose/true service in life can come to us over time from shedding expectations of instant success and crazy hustling. We’ll reframe the game by listening to our internal desires, values and skills vs. cultural/familial expectations. Then, match that with what our communities are truly asking from in us.

Stefan: Gamification – Making Your Business Fun (& Profitable)

We're live with Stefan Kalb talking about how to gamify your business - how to make it engaging and fun for your clients (which makes them much more likely to stick around in the long term).

Posted by Worth The Journey on Wednesday, September 6, 2017

One of the most financially brilliant and emotionally positive strategies businesses are using these days is gamification. It’s the process of creating reward systems for customers when they interact with and sharing your business. In other words making your business into play. Done right, gamification makes clients into true fans who get to be involved in fun aspects of your business. During this workshop, Stefan will introduce a strategy for adding elements of reward and social fun to your business in a smart, heart-centered way.

Adrien: An Interview With A Successful Local Artist

The art of running an unusual business with Adrien Miller, Seattle artist.

Posted by Worth The Journey on Tuesday, August 29, 2017

So often as artists and wellness entrepreneurs, we’re told there’s no money in a creative profession. Meet Adrien, a successful sculptor and potter from Seattle. In this fireside-chat style talk, you’ll hear about the creative path Adrien took to earn a livelihood making art. From Adrien, “Making my art into my business has meant balancing my need for a spontaneous and curious creative inquiry with finding ways that my gifts as a maker may serve the needs and dreams of others.” If you’ve struggled to make it in a career built around doing work you love, this is the conversation for you.
