Lifestyle First: Understanding the Entrepreneur lifestyle
The world is fast-changing, so let’s shift away from a traditional mindset of life + work.
Our curriculum, rooted in Social Emotional Learning and reflective practice, helps learners develop greater awareness, gain exposure to careers and industries, and begin the process of designing their ideal lifestyle.
The Find Your Grind curriculum focuses on shifting the traditional mindset.
We’ve been taught to think of the job we want, acquire those strengths, then somehow fit in our lifestyle around that job.
Instead of answering the question, “what do you want to do when you grow up?” Let’s start answering the question “who do you want to be?”
This mindset shift all starts with Flipping the Funnel and getting to know yourself—what lifestyle you want to live, what strengths you have, and what job matches both.
The Entrepreneur Lifestyle
Learn how Entrepreneurs bring life to ideas by tapping into their greatest strengths.
Entrepreneurs are creative, highly motivated, and born risk-takers. Their natural sense of independence and unique confidence in their own ideas enable them to be their own boss, though they can achieve success in many ways.
Entrepreneurs are smart and outgoing, and networking appears to come easily. These attributes are certainly due to the diligence and commitment they invest in developing these strengths. Their sense of urgency and commitment to excellence inspires others to work harder. Entrepreneurs are constantly seeking improvement and efficiency in process, practice, and decision-making. They are the “risk managers” that reap big rewards.
