Be honest, we’ve all had that dream: working for yourself, sticking it to the man and going it alone. To be your own boss, chart your own course to professional (and subsequently, personal) happiness is a dream for many. It’s the equivalent of career nirvana, right?
Working for yourself requires a combination of guts, a bucket load of determination and, often nerves of steel. If you’re up for the challenge and ready to take this pipedream of yours and make it a reality, we say good for you! You’re ready to get your adult shit together. Bravo!
The only question remaining is… how?
Enter the ‘Pop-Up Entrepreneur Event’ (perfect timing, right?). The fifth gig of its kind, this sell-out event hosted by Advance Queensland showcases some of Australia’s most prolific, interesting and successful entrepreneurs in an evening of good old fashion knowledge sharing.
To keep things interesting (read: everyone on their toes), speakers are not unveiled until the night of, ensuring audiences are open-minded. Ultimately, you’re in for something totally unique and, at the end of the day, actually helpful.
Speakers of events past have spoken about their successes and failures in getting to the top of their game, their professional hopes and dreams, their first-hand experience on building a business from scratch and what it’s (really) like to be an entrepreneur. Invaluable information if you’re thinking of or are currently working for yourself. On top of this, it's also a fantastic opportunity to network (the Holy Grail of entrepreneurship!) with like-minded people and acquire those much-needed connections!
So, if you’re interested in hearing from some of the best in the business across a plethora of industries and getting helpful, honest advice from individuals who’ve been in your exact shoes, you should come check it out.
Knowledge is power, so load up when you can!
