Event description


Want to monetize your passion?

Payne Consulting Co is pleased to announce The Biz School for Product Development with small business consultant and strategy coach, Gabriella Payne.

Gabriella provides expert advice that helps business owners monetize their passions. Her approach to business is unique in that she has experience in strategy development and consulting for billion dollar global companies from which she has learned to apply to her own business strategies. In addition, her workshops help entrepreneurs expand their circles and meet their future business partners and mentors.

What Our Attendees Say:

"As an solopreneur, there are certain experiences that can be avoided by simply heeding the wisdom of someone that has already been through it. After attending this event, there was valuable information that can be used throughout both business and life that if properly applied can prove beneficial as opposed to trial and error."

"This event helped me and many others get back on track with our goals in addition to reshaping and rethinking our approach towards those goals. It was also a reminder that sometimes you will fail, but it is okay! You have to get back up and keep at it."

"The event was well planned, extremely intuitive. Gabbi tells you what you NEED to hear, NOT what you WANT to hear. The most recent workshop has increased my productivity and helped me focus in on my next steps."

Her entrepreneurial journey started when someone asked her to conceptualize a cartoon character for a shirt in the seventh grade. After delivering the shirt to her classmate, they simply refused to accept it without providing payment stating "It's just too good".

Saturday, June 22nd, 2019, at 12:00 pm “The Biz School: From Idea to Execution”

Solopreneurs come to The Biz School when they need direction and clarity to grow their business revenue by monetizing their product ideas and improving their sales abilities.

At this event, network and learn:

  • How to execute and monetize the ideas you’re afraid of

  • Tools that help you manage the process of creating products and services that sell

  • How to properly test your product ideas with your customer base

  • The number 1 way to create a sales strategy

Your ticket purchase includes:

  • The workshop
  • Two facilitated networking sessions
  • Lunch

  • Take-home worksheets

  • 50% off a one-on-one consultation

A Note from Gabriella Payne, Small Business Consulting:

Listen: Businesses sell. What do you have to sell? Could you build upon your products and services to increase your current revenue? Is there a passion of yours you are looking to make money from?

After developing a few of my own products, producing more than six events for business owners, and engaging in exciting strategic partnerships I'm ready to share with the world exactly how I've done it.

When working through product development it is pertinent that you understand the dynamics of time management, partnerships, and process steps required.

In my Business Bootcamp, I’ll provide the systems and strategies to work your way through product deployment in baby steps so that you can get it done and generate the income you are seeking.
