Grand Potential Podcast


We are so excited to host our 2nd Virtual Conference!

SAVE THE DATE for this fun and inspirational event to celebrate the year at our last mega EDUnetworking event of 2022! This conference is about creating a business and work we love while contributing and giving to others in a bigger, better way.

Experts from our community will share their wisdom and short stories to inspire us and support us to make a bigger impact in this world through Grand Giving. There will be many networking breakout rooms to connect, create opportunities and collaborate together.

Amy McLaren, the Author of Passion to Purpose (and co-founder with Stu McLaren of Village Impact) will be sharing her keynote Passion to Purpose.

During this presentation Amy will share three ways to build a business, while overcoming that internal doubt that often prevents us from doing the things that we love, achieving the things we want and having the impact we are capable of.

You’ll learn:
– Three ways to move forward with confidence on your ideas (even when you’re constantly second guessing yourself)
– How to incorporate giving into your business through the products you sell, your community and your company structure
– A simple way to create more fulfillment and meaning from your work
