THIS CONFERENCE WAS MADE JUST FOR YOU
Entrepreneurship is no joke. It takes strategy and planning that no one could ever prepare themselves for. So when we took a step back and looked at our own biz with a critical eye after 7 years, we saw some things that we missed. Things that fell through the cracks that we never even knew we needed to know.
We also got tired of small biz conferences that skipped all that stuff. Sure, that stuff might not always be pretty, and we can promise you it isn’t always the shiny fun stuff, but our biz desperately needed them. So we created the before. conference; not to talk about the fun, typical entrepreneur topics, but to get down to the nitty-gritty of the things we missed along the way. The things we wanted to learn from and to say we were better off after learning them.
Last year we spent two days with the get stuff done, goal diggers of the world, and we learned a heck of a lot in the process. We learned invaluable lessons and tips from experts in everything from sales to marketing in every way, shape and form possible. We learned that the best person to make changes in our biz is US, while also learning the all-important value of networking and delegating; cause after all, we can’t do this successful biz thing alone.
So join the community of go-getters (yes we’re dubbing ourselves that) and DIG IN. We don’t like to waste our time + know you don’t either. This isn’t a coffee date or a spa day.

From one small biz owner to another, we get how hard it is to know what questions to ask or where to spend your hard-earned cash. If you’re feeling like you’ve got a ton of spinning plates that will soon come crashing down, let us help. Or maybe everything is going O.K. in your biz, and thats just the problem; its going O.K. These go-getter, dream-chasers that will pack this room are on the pursuit of FABULOUS. So let’s simplify your biz + find the clarity you need to propel into that pursuit with them.
We have searched high and low, and called in all our favors to get only the best speakers FOR YOU. And if we’re honest, these are speakers that we are dying to hear for ourselves.
Don’t believe us? We have spent lots and lots of moola with these peeps because we BELIEVE in them. Now you get to spend two days sharing their brilliance because they believe in you. They won’t be pitching to you all day, because you can get that anywhere. These experts are here just to give you quality biz advice.
“Why is what these peeps have to say so brilliant”, you ask? Because they’ve used the tools and advice they will be sharing with you to grow their own businesses. That’s right, they are experts because they own their own businesses and they LIVE it. Because we all know, you don’t just “do” entrepreneurship, you “live” it.
We’ve got an eye for unique spaces + Hotel 340 is no different. Built in 1917 and in the heart of downtown Saint Paul, this landmark building was an obvious choice as the perfect place for the BEFORE. conference.
With 56 rooms + a gorgeous ballroom, the BEFORE. conference has exclusive access to every inch. We want you to be completely focused on your biz + all that you’ll be taking away from these two days, so we’ve taken care of where you’ll rest your head.
