What’s up everyone! In this episode, I am joined by Pamela Slim, speaker, business coach and award-winning author of Escape from Cubicle Nation and Body of Work. Pamela joins me to share her story and how her brick and mortar learning lab empowers diverse entrepreneurs.
The core of everything is that we all need each other and we work together from our diverse ecosystems.
For over 20 years, Pamela has worked with thousands of entrepreneurs to support them in launching and growing their businesses. Even with the evolution of online courses, many business owners are still stuck with the same problems Pam has been helping them solve for years. In 2016, she started the K’é Main Street Learning Lab in Mesa, Arizona, which is a community-based leadership development lab that supports and strengthens local small businesses. Since launching the Learning Lab, Pam has hosted over 200 events led by 38 community leaders for her more than 4,000 community members.
Listen as Pamela shares her insights about building a community, being physically present with your members, and small business solutions.
"Never trust short term success and never assume that short term failure lasts forever."
"There is huge power in physically being present."
"Our problems as business owners are large and varied and they require a lot of solutions."
"The core of everything is we realize that we all need each other and we work together from all different sectors of our communities. "
