“Tall Buildings and Sexy People” with Jenny Feterovich
August 25, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
Why you need to abandon your fantasies to achieve your dreams
It’s hard to imagine a less auspicious start to entrepreneurship than growing up in Soviet Russia. Still, Jenny Feterovich weaves a tale of how her childhood leads her to become a relentlessly optimistic business owner and an award-winning film and TV producer.
She pulls back the iron curtain on self-doubt and walks attendees through the steps needed for success. And after eight seasons producing a hit show about small businesses, she has proof that her methods work.
This 30-minute presentation spans continents, decades, and industries and leads viewers to some powerful truths that only come from Jenny’s real-world experiences.
