“Making The Most Of Speaking Opportunities For The Business Owner.”
If you are a business owner or entrepreneur you will be given opportunities to make the case to an audience they should care about what you do. If you’ve never done this before, it can be intimidating. Experienced Toastmaster Ron Davis will give you a quick speech formula to start with the next time you get the chance to present. He’ll also tell you tricks to make the most of your chance.
Kevin Jackson, CEO (Chief ENCOURAGEMENT Officer) of Jackson Brothers #2 provides a brief synopsis of how the local Jackson Brothers Feed & Seed started. This CEO explains the importance of relationship building for any business to succeed. Kevin’s unique insight as a “second generation” Jackson is laced with humor and invaluable wisdom.
MANY ARE CALLED…FEW RESPONDVENTURE CALL LLC is a leading proponent of the entrepreneurial mindset movement that does ENGAGE individuals and organizations with the opportunity to activate the “chosen-ness” of their calling. Understanding the uniqueness of one’s calling is crucial to avoiding the groupthink, collective mindsets that inhibit creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, communication, and other entrepreneurial skills.
EntrepreneurshipStart-up business owners frequently do not know how to implement their vision, nor build a secure foundation for growth. Existing businesses get stale and are in need of fresh vision. Individuals are stuck in meaningless, dead-end jobs, barely motivated enough to get out of bed on Monday mornings. They are all in need of the entrepreneurial mindset. Venture Call LLC is here to help guide your business and organization into the unlimited world of possibilities that lie within your reach.

The Ice House Entrepreneurship Program
In 2014, Albuquerque became the first in the world to introduce Entrepreneurial Mindset Training at the City level to unleash human potential, empower people, and transform the way the city works. In spring 2016 that transformation extended far into the future as twelve APS students became the first youth to explore the mindset. Some of the city’s most accomplished entrepreneurs signed on in support of the APS Pilot Program and our students, investing their time and experience in a better future. Partners in the Pilot Program included City of Albuquerque, CNM, HDIC and the Albuquerque Community Foundation.
