Recently a captivating event took place in Beverly Hills. The Elite Entrepreneurial Workshop was born. This event marked a very distinctive and unique footprint. It represented a rare occasion for philanthropists, business owners, entrepreneurs and executives to network, engage and connect as they learned to merge internal wisdom with practical ideas to take their businesses to the next level.

The Elite Entrepreneurial Workshop on October 20 and 21

Over the course of two days, three successful entrepreneurs—Nathalie Virem, Erez Cohen and Alan Burak—plus special guest Jay Shetty and other outstanding speakers including Dr. Joe Vitale, Lisa Haisha, Debi Berndt Maldonado, JP Morgan, Seena Sharp, Sandy Abrams, and members of The National Association of Women Business Owners joined forces to share insights and knowledge with workshop participants who took the time off from their busy schedules for personal and professional growth and development.

As an added bonus, the audience had time to network and connect with special award winner Daniel Habif and listen to Angel Ray, nationally-acclaimed, singer and composer and Ronnie King, Oscar and Grammy nominated producer, composer, musician and philanthropist.

The Elite Entrepreneurial Workshop and attendees were also grateful for the generous product contributions of our sponsors Crateful Catering and Detox Water -Bioactive Aloe Waters.

There were many takeaways from the workshop and speakers. Here are just a few to help readers start their business planning for 2019.

1. Capitalize on your ”calling”. (Nathalie Virem).

Why do you exist? Why are you here in life? Believe it or not, everyone has a calling, otherwise known as a mission here on earth. Some of you may not know your calling or may not think you have one. It isn’t true. Everyone is born with a purpose. The key is to identify it and use it as the foundation for your business venture(s). When individuals act on their calling, they are more likely to achieve the business growth they seek, and profits will follow.

2. Your goals should be like your home address—know them by heart. (Erez Cohen).

Once you have clarity of purpose and vision, write down your goals. Include the small ones and the big ones. Some will be short-term, some long-term. Carry your goals everywhere. Look at them often. Memorize and internalize them so you can take actions to achieve them and make them a reality.

3. Establish a proven business model to create true wealth. (Alan Burak).

Once you have clarity of purpose and vision and start working to achieve your business goals, you will start slowly to see the financial results you seek. During your early endeavors as a business owner you may be broke on paper, but you should know you are not poor. Keep changing your mind and business strategy, but never your high-level goals and vision. You will eventually turn the invisible into the visible.

4. Connect to your higher wisdom to find eternal joy and leave a meaningful legacy. (Nathalie Virem).

To tap into your higher wisdom, you will need to access your subconscious mind and transfer the messages your receive to your conscious mind. In order for them to become a reality, you must experience them as truth. For this, you need to master faith. That means faith in yourself or in your ability to achieve your calling in life, faith in a higher power that guides each of us and faith in timing. Even when you are about to give up, don’t. The universe will test you often as you demonstrate your commitment to serve the world.

Here are a few testimonials from attendees:
