ENTREPRENEURSHIP & PARENTING
March 22 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$28.00
“Having children isn’t the reason you aren’t an Entrepreneur, it’s the reason you need to be!” – Erika Obando
In a society where the media feeds us daily doses of reasons to live in fear, anxiety and under a rock; it’s no wonder people are becoming more and more cocooned in their routines and less likely to venture off into the wonders of Entrepreneurship. Then you add the parenting component and it’s as if all your dreams now come to a screeching halt.
Successful entrepreneurship consists of the same composition you are already mastering as a parent. Discipline, resiliency, creativity, patience and perseverance to name a few. If you added a good structural base, organized time management with a splash of flexibility, you are ready to become everything you dreamed of and all the while becoming the best role model your children need.
We live in a world where our children are in dire need of example, guidance and to see first-hand that anything they put their minds to, they can achieve with hard work and passion for what they want. But this becomes so much more effective when you are showing your kids instead of just telling them so.
At this workshop, you will learn the tools of the trade to take the beginner steps into entrepreneurship without it affecting your parental responsibilities. You will understand how to blend both worlds into one synergetic beat. The workshop will give you the opportunity of exercising some of these ideas so that you can easily go back home and insert them as they fit into your life.
The Entrepreneurship and Parenting workshop will be conducted by International Speaker, Erika Obando. Erika is a serial entrepreneur who discovered her skills while being a single parent. With two successful careers in legal and commercial interior design under her belt, she also raised a son who is now fulfilling his future as a Sophomore at Florida State University. Erika is the Founder of Design Your Life of Purpose, the Author of her upcoming book “Without A Voice” and is known as a notorious community volunteer. She is currently an Account Executive for Sinclair Broadcast Group, the largest TV network in the nation and the host of the upcoming news segment Panorama Latino which will be airing on Azteca 48 in Palm Beach County.
Erika’s passion crosses over to various initiatives including the World Happiness Festival which is a worldwide speaking platform held in multiple locations. Erika will be speaking in March of 2018 in Mexico as well as Medellin, Colombia in October of 2018. She is an influential speaker that focuses her efforts on women empowerment, youth enrichment and advocating entrepreneurship thru the art of reinvention. She recently took the renown Tedx Stage in which she shared her story of “When Breaking Points Lead To Empowerment” which is a woman’s journey of resiliency and perseverance.
Erika will be sharing her in depth experiences and the tools she used to become a successful entrepreneur and a graduated parent.
