Lifestyle Entrepreneurship

Best Audience: Company groups or individuals who are looking at retiring within the next 10 years.

At the centre of Lifestyle Entrepreneurship is usually a suppressed desire to run your own business with something you are passionate about at its centre. It is your time and instead of creating a business that owns you, the purpose this time is to flex and grow your entrepreneurial skills by creating a business that fits well into your work optional lifestyle.

Whether that is a part-time business run 2-days a week, a seasonal business that you shut down for months on end, or a business of your own custom time commitment, Lifestyle entrepreneurship will show you how to create a business that provides you with a compelling purpose, supplemental income and a chance to craft a post work identity.

Attendees of this inspirational and entertaining program will:

  • Discover and articulate what they want from their business, both in monetary and non-monetary terms
  • Learn how to put their ideas through a simple yet effective business validation filter
  • Begin creating a road map to bring their business idea to life.

Why Mind Switch?

Retirement can be a challenging time for both companies and the soon to be retirees. Yes, you provide employees with some resources but the fact is that 95% of retirees are vastly unprepared for the changes that await them, both financially and non-financially.

By including the Mind Switch Academy as part of your retirement program, you will help your employees prepare both financially and non-financially by developing goals, mindsets and habits that will not only benefit them in retirement, but will increase their contribution while they are still part of your team.
