Event description

Description

Starting a company is hard. I know; I founded a Silicon Valley startup incubator and the #1 determinant of entrepreneurial success is sales skills. We all want to sell like a billionaire rockstar and overcome our anxiety of rejection or failure, and defiantly ignore each “no” versus feeling crappy inside afterward. So what’s stopping us? Ah yes, that little thing called FEAR.

Join us for a 5-week bootcamp in Hacking Fears in Entrepreneurship: Fearlessly Selling the Crap Out Of Your Product. Get what you want in life and your startup by learning medically proven steps to hack fear and taking ACTION. Join us for a fun, enlightening, and inspiring intensive 5-week boot camp on retraining your brain’s fear instinct. Both current and aspiring entrepreneurs are welcome. What is fearful today can be fun and exciting tomorrow.

Week 1 starts with a lecture on the science of fear and the steps to overcome it. Then, we put all the steps into action so you don’t simply understand fearlessness, you become it.

Weeks 2-4 challenge you on more fearless actions customized to entrepreneurs, like product enhancement and sales. We build your confidence through live activities that scare the heck out of you: doing standup comedy, selling things to strangers, or asking someone out while completely sober. We end with a specific plan for you to tackle your own fear in your own daily life.

Week 5 forces you to achieve something you fear. We create multiple accountability mechanisms and an encouraging buddy system. You leave fully armed with a sustainable plan to tackle your fear going forward.

By the end of the 5-week boot camp, you will have accomplished something that pushed past your own fears and helped you build new confidence. Coming with a circle of friends is highly encouraged so you have a built-in accountability system. Or, come alone and meet new friends in this unique experience as we build new accountability bonds so your newfound fearlessness becomes everlasting.

Five-session Bootcamp held from 6:30-7:30 on Tuesdays: Jan 23, 30, Feb 6, 20, 27 (*no class Feb 13)

Early bird discount tickets $59.

Regular tickets $79.

Door tickets first day of class: $99.

ABOUT RACHEL, THE FEAR-HACKER

Years ago, I started doing all sorts of things that scared the heck out of me. It was both terrible and awesome, and led me to some of my favorite life achievements.

- Moving to the other side of the world: Born and raised in California, I was offered a job in China. I feared I would be lonely, culture shocked, and sick from the air pollution. All the above happened. But, this is what also happened: I had so many amazing life experiences, I published a book about my 4 years living in China and was consequently asked by Columbia Business School to be a guest lecturer.

- Stand-up comedy: I had always wanted to do improv comedy. I took my first improv class in China, fearing I would really suck at it. On my first day, the class gave me a solo assignment: to rap in Mandarin. I was as terrible as that sounds, but I kept practicing. Years later, I was on stage at Upright Citizen’s Brigade and an almost TED speaker (that’s another story…).

- Selling stuff to strangers: I finally quit my job as a Chief Strategy Officer at a major healthcare company to follow my dream of starting my own company in NYC. I feared I would fail miserably and go broke. Well, I did go broke, because I realized I was a terrible salesperson. I decided to learn sales the old-fashioned way: by setting up a lemonade stand on the streets of New York and getting over my fear of selling to complete strangers. I also sold anything else I could think of, including a service to vacationing Manhattanites to babysit their dogs, cats, or plants in exchange for living in their apartments in their absence. And that’s how I managed to live in NYC for 5 months for free.
