Hack Your Way To Success with Mindfullness | Suzanne Jewell
Nov 15 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Mindfulness is an ancient practice that brings enormous health, productivity, clarity and stress management benefits to those who practice it. Entrepreneurs are disrupted an average of every 3 minutes while working. We are touching our phones 250x daily. We are literally dependent upon and being absorbed by the very technology that makes being an entrepreneur today possible. The innovation community itself focuses on learning and personal development toward scale/nail, pitchdecks, KPIs, disruption and seeking funding. Little time is focused on the actual wellbeing of the One Pillar in a start-up that has no benefit if it fails; meaning the entrepreneur themselves. Learning tools, tips and techniques that will support how to manage your attention as an asset, how to calm your overly stimulated mind (and body), as well as how to be more present can make or break the One Pillar that gets such little attention; the Mindset of the Entrepreneur
