Creating connection to themselves, others and the world around them is one of the reasons many people land in the Byron Shire and the Northern Rivers. This has led to many people who are coming up with ideas of how they can not only create an income and define themselves but also live in a region famous for its low levels of employment.
Angela Stedman, Jade Green, and Sebastian Mierau are passionate about entrepreneurship and creating community and are starting up a monthly meet-up for entrepreneurs and digital nomads to get inspired and connect locally.
From this Thursday January 10 they will host a monthly meet-up with inspiring speakers and relevant content for entrepreneurs and digital nomads.
‘Most importantly, there will be enough time to connect with others to learn from each other’s mistakes and successes,’ said Sebastian.
‘It took us years to find a formula, systems, and rhythm for our businesses that work well and have the impact we wanted,’ Jade and Sebastian explain.
‘Even though we got there much faster than some others, we would have loved to have made fewer mistakes ourselves and instead learn from others. Being an entrepreneur means being a leading learner, we are very excited for others as well as ourself to have the monthly opportunity to extend our skills and knowledge by connecting with our like-minded community.’
The meet-up will take place on the second Thursday of each month at Mullumbimby Commons, 91 Main Arm Road, Mullumbimby from 5.30pm.
‘The first gathering on 10 January will have famous change maker Nicole Gibson speaking,’ said Sebastian
‘Nicole spoke at the last renew festival and is known as a multi-award winning social entrepreneur, TEDx speaker, and author. But she prefers to be seen as an unstoppable messenger of love and human potential; impacting over 250 000 people worldwide with her unconventional models of community development and transformation. Nicole will talk about how to shift ones mindset and learn how to Love Louder with just 15 minutes of practice a day.’
Nicole will then be part of a Q&A session before people have a chance to connect, sample some medicinal mushroom-fuelled tonic drinks, as well as superfood nibbles while watching the fire-twirlers at the end of the evening. The tickets to the event from $10 sliding scale.
‘The topics covered by our speakers will range widely on purpose, from how to have a large impact with your work, over how to build a successful and balanced team, to how to work in the same business as your partner,’ said Jade.
The platform used for the session is from the Entrepreneurs Institute that was founded by Roger Hamilton.
‘The entrepreneur movement is one of the biggest in the world,’ said Sebastian.
‘Besides many other things their main driver is to make the world a better place, or at least reinvent the wheel. Entrepreneurs are most often connected well online but typically lack access to a local support network fellow business owners.’
