12pm - 1:30pm - It's Me, Niches!
Avatar, ideal client, target market, tribe. All of these terms are used to describe the perfect person to buy your stuff. However, most new business owners struggle with the idea of niching because it feels counterintuitive to not sell to everyone. This workshop will show you why niching is important, build out just who your ideal client is and where to find them. Come prepared to do work!

6:00pm - 7:30pm - Building Good Customer Service Experiences
The customer may not always be right but everyone can agree that good customer service is a must if you want people to do business with you. In this workshop we'll discuss what makes a great customer service experience and how as a solo entrepreneur you can do the most to provide an excellent customer service experience from the moment a potential client checks out your website through handing over their money.
