At The SBC, we want to lead the effort and build a small business community that will help each business owner and entrepreneur to grow and sustain seven-figure businesses.” Said Rod Brown, COO of OnceLogix and creator of Small Business Cookout.

According to Bloomberg, eight out of 10 entrepreneurs who start businesses fail within the first 18 months. A massive 80 percent crash and burn. On February 9-10, 2018, the Small Business Cookout will bring together entrepreneurs, small business owners, and thought leaders to explore ways to make their businesses more profitable and exchange resources.

“At the SBC, we want to lead the effort and build a small business community that will help each business owner and entrepreneur to grow and sustain seven-figure businesses,” said Rod Brown, COO of OnceLogix and creator of The Small Business Cookout. “We are very intentional about assisting individuals to start, develop, and maintain enterprises as we've done over the past decade. We are here to be the catalyst and the vessel to teach, connect, and grant the necessary access for small businesses to succeed,” he continued.

The SBC will consist of a two-day experience. Attendees will immerse in knowledge and best practices that will take the individual and their business to the next level. The event will expose entrepreneurs to mastery techniques where they will engage with leading professionals, into leadership, being in the right business, growing their business, the “why” behind what each entrepreneur does, being authentic, and much more!

On Friday, guests will join empowering talks that include: “Three Ways to Grow Revenue," “How to be The Authentic CEO,” and “The Emotionally Intelligent CEO.” Also, there will be two panels. The first will be, “The Seven-Figure Sandbox” where attendees can listen to million-dollar conversations from gladiators who have earned over seven-figures, or participate in seven-figure deals. Here, the guests will find out what it takes to play in that sandbox. The second one, “Get Funded” is where attendees will learn about unique ways to finance their business in today’s funding climate. The night will close out with a mix and mingle soiree with music provided by Darryl Little and Friends.

Saturday, also coined “Action Saturday,” will highlight the Stand and Deliver Pitch Competition. The competition participants can speak about their business and walk away with money and services. Also on this day, guests can participate in the speed-mentoring event, and early risers can join a mini boot camp, led by an accomplished trainer. This will get their blood stirring and mind ready for the rest of the day. VIP registrants will have the opportunity to receive business coaching from individuals that have started and sustained successful small businesses.
