The Entrepreneur Inner Journey - Mastering your Inner Game

The Entrepreneurial Journey is filled with challenges and opportunities and at its heart lies an epic human adventure.
Among the key traits of successful serial entrepreneurs is their capacity to continuously :
  • Uphold and nurture the vision of what is yet to come into existence ...
  • Find support as well early adopters for that service (or product) which may only be a concept, a simple landing page, or a prototype at the moment they start out on their journey ...
  • Follow through, reach out to and secure the resources needed, against all odds and the nay-sayers, the haters who will hate ...
  • Surf an ocean of uncertainty, complexity, and waves of messy trial and error as they refine their initial idea; confront the "oh so sought-after" and challenging  market-fit moment that will make or break them ... to finally (oh no wait, you are actually just only starting this new step ...) reach the sacred implementation phase that needs to be executed successfully ... and pivot their offerings and business model to adapt to evolving market conditions and the global environment ... forevermore
How do you befriend uncertainty and fear, develop resilience, engage partners, establish trust and community to transform a simple idea or concept into a real product or service, which then turns into a family (suite) of products and services that sell and support the formation of an enterprise that thrives and morphs to adapt over time?  Well ... the road is long, hectic and the learning curve rather steep...
In our experience, the entrepreneur's mindset and inner-game are the catalysts that ignite and nourish the spirit powering-up any entrepreneurial journey and venture. Then, the only relevant questions are: Who do you need to become for your next step to unfold and how do you build the inner-skills that support your continuous evolution through the milestones of your entrepreneurial journey?
If this resonates with you, we suggest you take a step back from your business plan, your marketing plan, your product launch ... the Why, Who, What, Where, When, How which are second-order considerations compared to what seats at your core and focus inward instead, even for just one hour, on making sure you have your inner-game figured out.
• WHO is this for? 
So, take a deep breath ... do you recognize yourself in any of the following situations? 
  • No matter how many trainings, classes, and knowledge you have been accumulating, you still lack the confidence to make an ask, expose your offering to the world, reach out to your network ...
  • Each time you are about to take action you let your inner-critic (works with outside critics also) sabotage your every attempt and talk you out of even trying or are harshly critical of any of your achievements when you take action ...
  • Are you always questioning your capacities through your own vivid inner- dialogue, along the lines of:"who do I think I am to teach people about this topic? there are so many other experts at established companies offering a better product; why would anyone trust me or choose my product 
  • Are you questioning your value and whether your product, service (also works with yourself and job remuneration if employed) are really worth the price you are asking for? are you always selling yourself short, not daring to ask for a raise. Are you anxious to talk about money and face a negotiation? ...
  • Do you come from a non-for-profit environment (also applies to any type of unpaid work habits, cultural norms) where the norm is that helping people solve their problems is a moral obligation and obviously free of charge by construct (nature)?
  • Are you caught up in the stressful process of searching for your business (or product or service) market fit or maybe pivoting your positioning or growing your market share? 
  • Are you trying to find a way to get access to investors you have no connection to and to identify who could be interested in investing in your company and have no clue where to start? Are you finding the whole process daunting?. The next thing on the line will be to pitch them effectively and convince them to fund you. How do you feel about that? Are you ready to face the many rejections that will undoubtedly arise and still keep pushing through to success while keeping your team motivated and focused? 
  • Do you sometimes feel discouraged or overwhelmed with all the responsibilities and challenges attached to bringing forth a new venture (possibly disrupting a market and its incumbents)? Are you working yourself to exhaustion ?. Do you ever worry about failure?
• Here is WHAT you can expect from our collaboration: 
If any of the above sound somewhat familiar, then we invite you to join us for a one (1) hour conversation dedicated to :
  • accessing and exploring the many dimensions of your entrepreneurial core
  • understanding what drives your mindset, fuels your inner-game 
  • teaching you our proprietary methods so that you can create bespoke, supportive conditions for your entrepreneurial endeavors to manifest and thrive in the material world
In this session, we focus exclusively on developing the first order mindsets and sustainable behaviors that will shape your inner-game and inform your inner-journey.
• Story of the offer we are presenting you with
