Global Entrepreneurship Week is Almost Here: Orlando is Ready! (BIG EXCHANGE)

Have you caught the entrepreneurship bug yet? If not, now is the time…literally!

Global Entrepreneurship week is kicking off this upcoming Monday, November 17th. Whether you are currently an entrepreneur, or aspire to become one, it is time to partake in the festivities with fellow entrepreneurs around the world…in other words it is time to get to work!

In my last post I wrote about the Strength Finders 2.0 and Myers Briggs Assessments, two resources that can help us better understand ourselves and others. We all have our own unique gifts, strengths and talents. When we come together and align our respective gifts on the common goal of solving BIG problems we can make a BIG impact. This will be occurring right in my backyard next week in Orlando, Fl as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week.

THE BIG EXCHANGE: Orlando’s Global Entrepreneurship Week Celebration.

The BIG EXCHANGE is Orlando’s one week long celebration of Global Entrepreneurship Week.

Teams of Thinkers, Artists, Makers & Educators will come together to solve our most pressing problems together through a series of workshops that awaken your inner entrepreneur and bring your unique gifts to the table.

If you have a passion for entrepreneurship, solving problems, and making an IMPACT….you don’t want to miss this event!
