B.I.G. Workshop preparation

BIG Is BACK! I started BIG back in 2013 and rebooted it because it’s time. Time to go BIG, together.

Think you’re a social entrepreneur? Got a great idea and no idea where or how to begin? Want to grow your social enterprise? Feeling stuck but passionate? Looking for your tribe? Sign up now for details for the next BIG dates in 2016. 

Ready to start or expand a project, program, business, organization that makes change and the world a better place? Are you ready to do your next BIG thing?

BIG = Bold Innovation for Good…do you fit the bill?

It’s been said that fortune favors the bold. To make your ideas tangible you must venture into bold territories with teachers who have gone there and are willing to go there with you. Uncovering your story, discovering what motivates you, and mapping where you want to go all require connecting to yourself and your passions. If you wanna go BIG you gotta do this work.

What You Get:

In our 2 day retreat, you’ll be working, eating, playing, hiking, sharing, exploring, building community, all while you uncover what’s BIG for you. I will guide you into bold territories with innovative and creative sessions to transform your passions into action. I’ve been hosting community convenings and facilitating social enterprenuers’ business plans for years now, and I can’t wait to share with you lessons learned, failures we’ve delighted in celebrating, and successes we’ve toasted proudly. I’ll bring a program that is transformational and honest so you can go deep in a community of practice of like-minded people like you. I’m also bringing my biggest and best network ideas and resources for you. You bring your best and worst ideas, your willingness to be open and go deep, your creativity and thoughtfulness.

You’ll get crystal clear on your BIG idea, what direction to take, and a BOLD message to share with the world. Your retreat will end with a map of your BIG idea. As a BIG Innovator, you’ll also get exclusive follow up and access to more BIG programs. Let’s create your next BIG thing together in a community of practice that supports you, links you to resources, and gives you room to be you.

Whether you’re already in it or not, you’ll benefit from:

  • Peer to peer sharing in a community of practice
  • Setting intentions
  • Discovering resources within the group
  • Celebrate your story, your failures and successes
  • Earn what you’re worth
  • Personal and professional transformational development
  • Creative business planning and goal setting
  • Learn to leverage your localness
  • Delicious local meals to nourish your mind and body
