8 – 10 am
COCO Uptown, Minneapolis
Ever thought about going out on your own, either as a freelancer, contractor, or entrepreneur building your own business? This month’s breakfast will feature panelists that have faced their fears and successfully emerged on the other side of the paycheck.
Join moderator Don Ball, co-founder of COCO, as he leads a discussion with four professionals from the marketing/communications field who have successfully launched their own businesses and lived to tell the tale!
Don Ball (@donmball)
Don is co-founder of COCO, a coworking community with over 1,000 members in Minneapolis, St. Paul and Chicago. COCO launched way back in 2009, in the midst of a recession (brilliant move, huh?) and not only survived, but managed to grow. One of Don’s favorite things is to encourage others to figure out how they can live a more fulfilling life by pragmatically pursuing their not-so-pragmatic dreams.
