Thu, 6 April 2017, 6:45 PM – 9:00 PM EDT
How does fear of being vulnerable hold us back?
At our last meetup, we brought you I Effed Up, an evening to openly share your biggest failures and mess ups. This time, we're getting to the heart of the matter: why are we so afraid of failure and vulnerability in the first place?
As cause-driven creatives, mindful entrepreneurs, and social impact advocates, putting ourselves out there and risking failure are barriers to achieving impact. "The Fear" prevents many of us from pursuing our true passions, taking our business or projects to the next level, or even from creating authentic and meaningful relationships with the people around us. How do we move forward?
On Thursday April 6th, we've partnered with Shecosystem to host an intimate, interactive workshop that will get to the heart of vulnerability, authenticity and personal fulfillment. We're gathering cause-driven creatives, freelancers, entrepreneurs, social impact professionals, and mindful individuals who want to connect with a supportive community that is passionate about making impact and is ready to challenge themselves to grow.
WHAT YOU'LL GET FROM THIS EVENT
Through this event, our goal is to help you reshape your worldview so that you'll see fear and vulnerability as motivators, not barriers. Whether you're a startup entrepreneur, a working professional, or a freelancer, you'll walk away from this event with conviction that you're not alone and that vulnerability is a strength - so you can grow your business, pursue your passions, and build more meaningful and authentic relationships with the people in your life.

7PM - 7:30PM: Welcome + Introductions
7:30 - 8:30PM: Talk + group discussions, interactive workshops

I'm not an entrepreneur or creative professional, but I aspire to live mindfully and make a positive impact. Can I still attend?
Yes! Our community is mostly made up of cause-driven creatives and entrepreneurs, but we're really here for anyone who is passionate about living a conscious and positive lifestyle. No matter what stage you're at in your career or personal/professional life, as long as you're looking to connect with a supportive community and want to challenge yourself to give and live authentically, then you will benefit from this event.
Will you be serving food or drinks?
Unfortunately we won't be serving food or refreshments. Please ensure you grab a bite to eat before coming so you arrive in top shape :) You are also welcome to bring your own food into the space.
