Don't miss our next very special event on October 10 - Elizabeth Lake will be presenting an afternoon seminar for Growth Acceleration  followed by an evening dinner program with Bruce Rabbe. 


Why is it that creating a truly sustainable company may be your greatest contribution as an owner and entrepreneur? 


This workshop provides life changing insights into seven integrated stages to creating a truly sustainable business, one that cares for you, your family, your employees and your successors, all with accelerated value.


This presentation will explore the dynamics of how businesses and entrepreneurs are intertwined. The Entrepreneurial Flight TM, takes entrepreneurs through the seven stages of their development, showing business owners how they can move their company from reactive to what we call "truly transferable", whether they choose that transfer the business or not; creating increased financial freedom, and dramatic business growth for themselves and those around them.
