Have you ever wondered…How entrepreneurs thrive through failure and rejection? How they recognize opportunities & take initiative? How they innovate in the face of challenges? Or how they stay optimistic when the outcome is fuzzy & uncertain?

With an entrepreneurial resilient mindset.

Now, your daughter can learn the tools to build this mindset.

Sign your daughter up for a one-day workshop where participants learn how to reframe failure, develop a growth mindset, and fearlessly put their ideas out into the world!

Workshops are all live, in-person, and instructor-led. No apps or virtual instruction! Just real, one-on-one education that is interactive, classroom-tested, and practical.  Your daughter will leave with her very own entrepreneur’s notebook!

Ages 10 – 15
