Create Your Own Future - April 26 Lunch & Learn
With the economic downturn, many young professionals are choosing to become more self-reliant by starting their own businesses. Whether it’s consulting on the side or starting a full-blown business, today’s YPs are creating their own jobs rather than competing for them.
The April 26 Lunch & Learn will address how YPs can create their own futures through innovation and entrepreneurship. During this forum-style presentation, a panel of local entrepreneurs will share how they started their businesses, challenges they faced, as well as provide advice for YPs. Even if you don’t have entrepreneurial aspirations, all YPs will benefit from the advice of these successful local business men and women.
Thursday, April 26
11:30am to 1:00pm
Oakwood Road Church
· Iacovos Zachariades – Global Reach
· Kyle Van Winkle/Nancy Linden – KOSAMA
· Deanna Faubus – B Fabulous BBQ

Lunch is included for both the YPA member and guests. (Be sure to register your friend as a “guest” when you register yourself on the website.) Any YPA member who brings a guest will be entered in to a drawing for a $20 gift card to Hy-Vee!
