I am beyond excited to be one of the Maker Mastermind Mentors at Maker Mastermind LIVE in Charlotte, North Carolina on June 24-25, 2022. The event is in person! You have no idea how thrilled I am to be speaking in person for the first time since I spoke in Aruba right before the world shut down. I can’t wait to learn from the other amazing speakers, hug so many necks, and talk about business with other entrepreneurs. But you know what is also great? There is an option to attend virtually as well. Literally a way has been made for everyone to attend one way or another. This is going to be amazing.
I am excited about the other speakers and the overall theme of the event as well. I cannot wait to be part of this in person mentoring with this curated group of Maker Mastermind Mentors representing over a century of small business success! At Maker Mastermind we will be using Donna Maria’s proprietary 4-phase approach to building a profitable business rescues you from the hustle trap that creates fatigue, overwhelm, and anxiety.
The mentors will be walking with you through roadmaps to success, so you can stop trying this and trying that and breathe again with an actual Success Path planned. The Lead Mentor will be Donna Maria the founder and CEO of Indie Business Network. Her “Indie Method” is the foundation of Maker Mastermind LIVE. The Emerge Mentor will be Adora Winquist an expert in Quantum Alchemy at Adora Winquist, LLC. Adora understands the importance of building a firm foundation for your business. The Engage Mentor will be Dawn Finch of Pooka Pure and Simple. By engaging fans on social media (including a popular Facebook group), an online newsletter, texts, and live events, Dawn has earned the attention, loyalty, and repeat sales of “Pookalitas” nationwide. I, Kayla Fioravanti, will be Evolve Mentor. My experience as an entrepreneur has been on how to evolve as a brand and a person from garage to lobby, to mezzanine to penthouse. Anne-Marie is the founder and CEO of Bramble Berry, INC offering inspiration and crafting supplies to makers and creatives worldwide. She is also the author of Live Your Best Day Ever and several soapmaking books. I cannot wait to be in the room with these ladies and everyone who comes to join us!
People are hungry to be together in person again. There is literally nothing quite like physical entrepreneurial energy. As a speaker there is no energy or feedback when you are speaking alone to an audience you cannot see behind a computer screen. I’m glad we had the technology to be able to still reach out and support one another during the pandemic, but I am starving for the energy of an in person event.
