Why we created the Summit:

We know from experience that events can be pivotal when you feel stuck, unsure and maybe a little burnt out. Those “aha!” moments you get from a talk, a quiet moment or a conversation can create a ripple effect in your business, or spark an idea that you wouldn’t have otherwise had.

We know that the world is changing rapidly. Business owners now MORE THAN EVER need support, ideas, and connections to continue to thrive - us included!

Because of this, we’ve done everything we can to bring you an event that is inspiring, thought-provoking, relevant, actionable, and transformative.

We’re so excited about this line-up and know it is going to be an amazing day.

- Nicole Velik, Ideas Bodega
