A free workshop for business owners, staff, professionals and students has come to SW Florida:

What: “Awaken the Entrepreneur Within” is a free 90-minute interactive discussion/workshop designed to communicate the benefits of adopting an entrepreneur’s habits and behaviors. People walk away with a clear understanding of what it takes to make things happen by what drives an entrepreneur, whether you’re in business or not.

Why: We don’t see videos or documentaries on people such as Richard Branson or Steve Jobs working at a desk or scheduling staff. We hear of their fears and how they overcame adversity. We’re drawn to their character, behaviors and habits, and how they learned from both successes and failures. Our group encourages people to separate business from entrepreneurism and explore the psychological side of what drives an entrepreneur. Why? Because if you stop to build the person first, they can build anything, whether it be a hobby, a career, or a global enterprise.

Who: Your host, “The Third Draft,” is a non-profit organization which not only offers this workshop free to the public but is also developing a nationwide program, plus a curriculum for high schools to adopt. The 90-minute workshops are informational, inspiring, motivational and educational.

The Benefit: Entrepreneurs are not born. They’re developed through experiences. Our workshops help an employee become an “Intrapreneur” - someone who adopts entrepreneurial thinking into the workplace, while business owners improve corporate skills, management staff become more results oriented, and students learn to make things happen at a young age.

There’s a 3-minute introduction video on the homepage of our website.
