THIS YEAR’S EVOLUTIONS
A Night For Entrepreneurs, Creatives and Dreamers To Celebrate Their Failures and Successes in 2016
My name is Blake Fleischacker. Some people call me Blake Fly because my last name is tough to pronounce. I like bonfires, romantic comedies and celebrating the success of awesome people like you. Why? You might sometimes forget to celebrate yourself.
Here is what I have come to know.
The end of the year gets people thinking about New Year’s Resolutions. People often focus on what they DID NOT accomplish in the last 12 months and use that list of failures to create their resolutions. People make sure to remember how much they suck, and then begin planning their year.
I have a different plan for Entrepreneurs, Creatives and Self-Identified Dreamers. You might identify as all 3. For the rest of this description, let’s say the term “Entrepreneur” encompasses all 3.
What if we ended our year by focusing on what we DID accomplish in the last 12 months and use that list of successes to create our list of evolutions? People would make sure to remember how much they rock, and then begin planning their year.
This is just my personal opinion, but I say we step onto that platform heading into 2017.
As a way to make that happen, here is my plan:
Host a night to celebrate entrepreneurs.
Do this by inviting entrepreneurs to celebrate themselves.
Fill a venue with kick ass human beings who are generous, collaborative and cool.
Call the night, “This Year’s Evolutions.”
Send you into 2017 stoked about your own success.
HERE’S ALL THE INFO YOU NEED TO KNOW…
WHO IS IT FOR?
Entrepreneurs, Creatives and Self-Identified Dreamers.
This is for people with million dollar businesses all the way up to people with the bold plans to someday do their own thing (Basically, no one is “Too small” for this event. I promise you).
WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF ATTENDEES?
HOW DOES THE EVENING WORK AND WHAT WILL YOU GET OUT OF IT?
The evening will have 3 focuses: Courage, Confidence and Community.
COURAGE: You will have an opportunity to share 1 failure and 1 success from 2016. Both take courage to articulate (A fat dose of vulnerability too). Some people will have the opportunity to share their failure and success on stage in front of the entire audience.
CONFIDENCE: After hearing the list of failures and successes from people in the room, you will participate in an exercise called “Thank U 2016” which is designed to remind you of your own awesomeness and sincerely spike your confidence as you head into 2017.
COMMUNITY: After the courage and confidence-building jam sessions, you will be buttered up for real-deal conversations rather than a bunch of “What do you do?” kinds of chit chats. I hate stuffy networking, and am committed to make this event a way for you to make quality connects and firm friendships for the year ahead.
In addition to a promotion in courage, confidence and community, there are 2 items you will get in your metaphorical loot bag when you leave.
10 DAYS OF “THANK U” COMMUNITY: You will be welcomed into the Facebook community which will begin a 10 day practice that will enhance the caliber of the relationships in your life. It’s so simple it’s scary. This practice will positively impact your personal, professional and romantic relationships.
10 PACK OF “THANK U” CARDS: This may seem basic and ordinary, but after this evening, these 10 cards will seriously come in handy for your business and your life. Trust.
WHERE IS THE EVENT?
Mystery Location To Be Announced 1 week before the event. The venue will be downtown (south of Bloor) and close to transit.
WHEN IS THE EVENT?
Sun. Nov. 27, 2016. 7pm START. 10pm END.
WILL THERE BE ANYTHING TO EAT?
Yes. Feel free to eat a dinner beforehand. There will be light snacks and non-alcoholic refreshments included in your ticket to the event.
I stopped counting the tens of thousands of dollars I have put into coaches, programs, courses and conferences a long time ago (DISCLAIMER: Thanks to my amazing accountant, I actually have started counting again). In all those paid opportunities, my favourite pricing model has been the following:
SAME EVENT, 2 PRICES.
If you are anything like me, you get more out of an experience if you invest more into the experience. Since everyone is at different stages in their business and their bank account, there are 2 prices for this event. You decide what you want to pay. No one will know which ticket you purchased unless you tell them.
$47 TICKET OR $97 TICKET. Same event, same goodies, just different investment on your end.

I am stoked for “This Year’s Evolutions 2016.” Rather than focusing on what we’re hoping to GET, let’s flip the calendar fully charged after celebrating what we’ve already GOT.
