Hear Marilyn's Experience As An Attendee

“You're embodying what you're teaching as we go through this summit. It's just a beautiful reflection of who you are and how you do business...I've been through a lot of trainings and a lot of this one, it was easy for me to show up. It's not always easy. I was "I get to do this today." I didn't ever feel like that. I was excited to be here.” — Marilyn Moody

Session Title: Soulful Summit to Soulful Life: Planning for the Future

Session Description: Do you ever leave business events feeling inspired and ready to act, but those new plans and ideas fail to materialize? Despite the plans, brilliant ideas, and new connections, it is easy to get wrapped up catching up on the emails you missed and the other day-to-days tasks of running a business that were not tended to during the time you were pouring into your professional development. Not this time!

This will be a work session specifically devoted to creating a post-summit action plan.

Bio: Jessi started her journey as an entrepreneur after experiencing toxic work environments. She thought there had to be a better way to value employees, pay them a living wage, and still be able to work outside. Her first company, a landscaping business, taught her that being a business owner amplified her voice and allowed her to advocate for the trades, as well as seasonal and gig economy workers. Now onto her second company, Outgrow Your Garage, she is building that advocacy work and teaching other trades, services and mobile companies how to grow sustainably and equitably. As a values-driven business owner, Jessi believes in breaking down class barriers and proving that small businesses can be profitable while creating robust communities and better job opportunities.
