Strategy & Productivity Masterclass

Pre-registration is sold out and remaining seats are limited!

Refresh the Resolution is a strategy and productivity masterclass to connect budding entrepreneurs and small businesses across multiple industries and niches to share productivity tips and best practices to the businesses that are often left out of the loop by larger corporations.


We provide strategic direction and step-by-step instructions to help new and aspiring business owners create a profitable business while working a full-time job. These business owners often have very little time and need a system that helps them translate their vision into a scalable, revenue-generating business.


Don't Wait - Start Being Productive Now!

Listen: As an entrepreneur, full-time employee in management, gymaholic, and social butterfly I have to get things done. Not only that, I have to get things done efficiently so that I have as much time as possible to spend with my friends and loved ones.


When you decide to start a business you have no idea how much it will change your dynamics of time, and you have to figure out how to balance it all quickly before your relationships or career become damaged in the process.


In my strategy & productivity masterclass, I’ll provide strategic direction and step-by-step instructions to help new and aspiring business owners create a profitable business while balancing the other necessities of life.

Will this work for my business?
Every business needs a strategy no matter what stage it is in. On top of that you need an action plan, and that’s where I come in. We’ll talk about things like business value-add versus value-add activities, strategic partnerships, strategic alignment of goals, and I have some expert panelists to answer any other business questions you may have. Their areas of expertise include e-commerce, relationships, consulting, and government contracting.

Why can’t I wait until the day before the event to buy the ticket?
We’re a month away and half of the tickets have already sold. If you’re serious about making a change in your business why would you want to miss that opportunity? You can wait - but don’t say we didn’t warn you.

What makes you an expert in strategy and productivity?

I started my job fresh out of college and was tasked with relocating a department to another country. It was baptism by fire. My supervisor kept piling on the responsibilities and still is, and to be honest I was not getting things done the way I wanted to. I created a system to get things done as quickly as possible and accurately as possible so I wouldn’t have to do them twice.

In terms of strategy, I am the youngest person on my leadership team and hold the responsibility of my facility’s revenue. I have spent the past few years deciding on strategies for our production staff so that we can determine which direction we need to go to increase revenue and decrease costs. I live this stuff DAILY.

What difference will it make?

You’ll learn: 

  • How to create a to-do list that helps you get things done

  • Tips that help me to run a business, work a full-time job, workout, and keep up with friends and family


You’ll leave knowing:

  • Exactly where your business is going for the next 3-5 years and how you’re getting there

  • What your one-year plan is

  • What you’ll be doing for the next 30 days after the event


Will it be boring?

This masterclass is very active and you will spend 50% of it out of your seat. I don't want to bore you to death, I want to help you. My style is very hands-on and perfect for visual, audio, and kinesthetic learners.

How will the networking session go?

Not many people can understand you like other entrepreneurs can, and many successful entrepreneurs have reminded me time and time again that you cannot do it alone. Are you going against the grain? Wouldn’t you like a sounding board for your next business idea or an entrepreneur who knows what you’ve been through and can relate?


Establishing community is apart of my four-pillar event structure to help entrepreneurs connect with one another and increase their individual productivity.


In addition to facilitated networking sessions, I'll warm up the panel with some questions of my own while you're thinking of your questions.
