We look forward to having him speak at future events.”

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?

Financial security is the cornerstone of any retirement. But finances alone do not guarantee a great retirement for your clients. A great retirement demands that your clients continue to have a compelling purpose and an identity they are proud of to truly enjoy their decades ahead.

By including the Mind Switch Academy as part of your client program, you will help them prepare for the non-financial aspect of retirement by helping them develop new goals, mindsets and habits. This will not only benefit your clients but will provide you increased client loyalty and referrals.
