As business owners, it’s easy to get caught up operating in your business every day and forget about taking care of the one thing that makes it all work – YOU.

While it’s important to do everything you can to keep your customers happy and your business growing, it’s even more important to design a life around what gives you happiness because that’s the only thing that makes this journey sustainable.

Melissa spent the last decade building startups. She most recently lived in New York, where she left 4 years ago to travel full time as a digital nomad; experiencing the world while building her company remotely.

In 2019, her real estate tech company was acquired and before starting something else, she took the opportunity to ask herself the one question she never knew to ask before, “What kind of life do I want to live?” With that in mind, she decided to build a career around the values of achieving work/life balance…where life comes first. She went on to cofound eWebinar, an automated webinar software company, with her (life) partner, David.

Linda and Melissa come together for this Skills Session to share their entrepreneur journey, how they make decisions on priorities, and a framework anyone can use to design the life they want to lead by putting thier business on autopilot

Melissa will share her best strategies on how you can automate your business and reclaim your time to repurpose towards other things you enjoy. By automating your business, you’re making room for new relationships, experiences, and connections you wouldn’t otherwise have.

You started a business to have control over your business and your life, but you can’t have either unless you have control over your time.
