The Lazy Entrepreneur Economic Growth Conference

May 19 @ 9:00 am - May 20 @ 5:00 pm

Truist Foundation Fellowship Powered by the Watson Institute presents Mobu Enterprises Foundation’s The Lazy Entrepreneur Economic Growth Conference

Are you tired of working hard to grow your business or find a good paying job?

Do you desire to find tips, tricks, and resources to blow your business up?

Can you afford to buy every resource out there to start or grow your business/career?

Well, if you are available on May 19-20th, 2023 from 9a-5pm you are in for a treat.

Economic growth refers to the increase in the production of goods and services in an economy over a certain period of time. It is typically measured by the increase in Gross Domestic Product (GDP), which is the total value of goods and services produced in a country during a specific time period, usually a year.

Economic growth is also often seen as a positive development because it can lead to higher standards of living, increased employment opportunities, and greater access to goods and services. However, it can also lead to negative consequences such as environmental degradation, income inequality, and social tensions. Our conference will address all of these concerns both positive and negative in a productive, light way to help dispel myths around being an entrepreneur.

The Lazy Entrepreneur Economic Growth conference was founded by Lazy, Serial Entrepreneur, Jessica Lewis. Jessica has founded and scaled over 12 successful companies and desires to bring her success, tips, and partners directly to you so you don’t have to work that hard. Jessica is currently a TRUIST Foundation and Watson Institute Fellow and is hosting this conference as a way to help entrepreneurs find an easier way to start a business and scale without all of the hurdles like long lonely hours, money loss, and repeated failures.

These resources will aid you in helping direct your path of entrepreneurship. Jessica’s 501 (c)(3), Mobu Enterprises Foundation helps community members increase their economic growth through green trades training (training within the sustainability industry) and green trades startups.

The Lazy Entrepreneur Economic Growth Conference is designed to help conference participants find a way to access highly stable, no cost resources that will help them learn how to leverage these resources to improve their bottom line with minimal effort, you know the lazy way.
