Small Business Boss Summit

Wednesday, June 5, 2019 - 9:00am to Thursday, June 6, 2019 - 4:00pm

This is one part workshop, one part gathering, and all parts awesome. This isn't your typical butt in chair, bored out of your mind by 11 a.m. kind of event. At Small Business Boss, we do things differently. The Summit will be no exception.
I’m Maggie, the host of the Small Business Boss Summit. For years, I’ve created online spaces, but I know deep in my heart how transformative gathering in person can be. Over our two days together, we’ll dig into how to grow your business, how to make a bigger impact with your work and so much more.
Your Summit ticket includes:
