We continue the conversation this week in Part B about creating productive workplaces and business lessons, from Robyn who's been in business for 16 years, as well as some actionable education for you to apply in your workspace.

We will share great tips and tricks from our FAQ Business Founder Jane Tweedy, and call upon some amazing guests who will inspire or inform, or even better both! Our guests must share our mission to help empower business owners to avoid getting ripped off or ripping themselves off because of what they didn't know they didn't know.

Who will you hear from?

We already have some amazing people lined up - a couple of inspirational local business success stories, a million-dollar revenue maker who got there on her own to start (but now has a subcontracted team of helpers), a digital media marketing guru who is an amazing leader and human, US based (we're going international!) solutions providers (hopefully with some deals ;-) ) and some everyday local business owners you can relate to, sharing their struggles and successes in navigating this crazy world of entrepreneurship and being your own boss!

What are our four content pillars?

Actionable education - learning you can put into action immediately! Plus great tools and services to make your life easier!
