Pre-Event Party

We're getting Wile'd

Meet Julie first at Cocktails and Conversations. Thursday, October 19, at Clayton Members Club and Hotel at 4pm.

Join Wile co-founder, Julie Kucinski
Chief Brand Officer and Natural Brand Expert

You can pre-game at our Cocktails and Conversations with Julie. Who’s Julie? She’s an innovation and branding and marketing strategist. That’s her jam and her work is dangerously practical, culturally attuned, and deeply value-packed. She’s in Denver just for you to give you a pointer or two about branding and marketing your companies and answering questions you may have about finding and securing investors. Heck! She’s done it multiple times. Serena Williams is one of the few investors in WILE and it’s co-founded by actress, Judy Greer.

You’re in for a treat with Julie at the pre-event, and she’s our keynote the following day. Connect with Julie and her community on socials.

Take the pre-event Business Assessment

Surprisingly — or not, most of us are too busy to check in on the pulse of our business, so we skip analyzing the company and our life experiences at 40+. Understanding your business vision and goals sets your intentions, drives your actions, and brings you closer to the success you want to accomplish. Barbara Brooks with SecondActWomen opens Biz+LifeCon with her¬†signature Small Business Assessment¬†where you’ll gain insight into where you are today and where you’re headed – or want to head in your business – and life.

It’s designed specifically for the small business female founder to use as a guidepost to set their goals.

Biz+LifeCon has your back female founders

This is your event and age is your superpower… in your business, on the job, and in real life. But, even our superpowers get put to the test. We know that starting a company or going bigger as women can be challenging, exhausting and frustrating at times, especially when realities like ageism work against us. But there are things you can do to push back on ageist beliefs and Biz+LifeCon will help.

Watch our 2-minute¬†video below¬†for a little pick-me-up vibe and reminder you’re unstoppable.¬†

Surround yourself with like-minded women

We know there’s nothing you can’t accomplish on your own, but isn’t the journey better when you have a group of ahhh-maaa-zinng women like you to lean on during the good, the bad and the ugly? Community and unwavering support are true game-changers. Plus, let’s face it, there’s undeniable power in a pack, especially when that pack is made up of other women 40 & 50+ going through similar experiences.¬†Biz+LifeCon¬†is your place to add to your pack!¬†
