The A.M. Shift: Eastern Jackson County

Friday, September 22 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am • Organized By KCSourceLink
13700 E. 35th St. South, Independence, MO 64055


The A.M. Shift, brought to you by KCSourceLink and hosted by Mid-Continent Public Library, is a regional roundtable and resource fair that goes beyond chitchat and handshakes to bring seasoned perspectives, fresh thinking and committed action to shift your business into hyperdrive.

We have all heard "you only get one chance to make a good first impression," but what are we supposed to do with that information (other than get even sweatier palms)? In this A.M. Shift, you will receive a practical template and coaching for making your next "Nice to meet you!" your best yet. Plus, learn how to answer a very difficult question for any entrepreneur, "So, what do you do?" Our presenter, Laura Schmidt (founder of notes to self®), has an excellent answer to that question: she makes socks that make you feel great, inside and out.

A . . . Activate your network:

Build, engage and leverage your network of business owners and business-building experts through facilitated discussions on topics that matter to your business and your bottom line.

M . . . Move your business:

Get fresh perspectives, build on your momentum and shift your thinking through founder roundtables that will give you actionable ideas on how to move your business forward.

Join us. Get in gear and punch in to The A.M. Shift to discuss First Impression/Last Impressions!
