Description

A FOUNDER’S QUEST TO TAME THE BEAST
What I Did To Reignite My Passion

The physical and emotional toll of bringing a business into existence can wreak havoc on a founder’s life and ability to lead. What do you do when business is growing but everything else feels like it’s spiraling quickly out of control?

Join Jason Bolt, CEO of Revant Optics, for this special Built Up Festival presentation on how he pulled himself out of the muck and mire of fading motivation by turning to a surprising source - his customers.

FREE PAIR OF LENSES: Ticketbuyers may be eligible to get a free pair of Revant lenses at the event. We'll be emailing ticketbuyers to send make/model of current sunglasses to see if they're suitable for the machine that will be onsite at the event!
