Entrepreneurship Coaching at Gangplank

I recently attended Entrepreneurship Coaching, at Gangplank, that was underwritten by the not for profit group Opportunity Through Entrepreneurship Foundation. I highly recommend visiting the Gangplank and taking the opportunity to attend the various free programs offered there!

Gangplank is located at 260 S. Arizona Ave., Chandler, AZ 85225. I have a standing meeting with a colleague there on Tuesdays and he recommended I attend the coaching sessions with him. The sessions I attended (I began midway through the course) covered pivoting, cash-flow, culture and funding. The material and ensuing discussions gave me valuable information that I put to use immediately! The tools and information are great for a business in the early stages. However, one of the best benefits is the networking opportunity! The willingness of the attendees and the presenters to share resources to help one another to succeed was simply eye opening and amazing!

I plan to continue my Tuesday meetings and attend more programs at Gangplank. Maybe I’ll see you there!KnottyJohn
