What IS Momentum?

The Momentum Weekend Workshop is a two-day event taking place on Saturday and Sunday, November 13-14, 2021 (with an optional third-day mastermind session on Monday, November 15), where a small group of dedicated, like-minded entrepreneurs come together in an intimate setting to learn, share, discuss, troubleshoot, and make REAL changes to their lives and businesses. Through collective brainstorming, sharing, education, accountability and ongoing support, there is opportunity for real growth and results.

Lou will share practical and tactical lessons and strategies we can learn and use inspired by the Disney Parks. In this interactive workshop, you will also discover how to apply them to your business and life. Discover how to differentiate yourself, create emotional connections and deeper relationships, establish trust, and deliver exceptional service that exceeds expectations. 

Lou and other Momentum attendees will share not just their personal experiences in starting and growing a business, but challenges, lessons, and pitfalls to avoid, as well as real-world strategies, tactics, and personal guidance to use along the way.

And YOU will have the opportunity to SHARE what you do, know, and have expertise and experience in… whether on stage, or simply by chatting with other attendees. (When you register, you will be sent a link to apply to speak.)

But most importantly, this is designed not to be a typical conference in which you watch presentations, take notes, and go home, hoping to figure out how to use what you heard. Instead, it is about APPLYING what you learn while you are at the event.

Not Your Typical Conference

Most conferences can be overwhelming…  You are forced to choose which sessions to attend and which to skip. You leave worried about what you missed and then return home to realize months later that you didn’t even take much (if any) action after it ended.

Momentum is different. Because you’ll attend every session we offer, you won’t miss a thing. Additionally, we offer an interactive, hands-on environment throughout each day where your unique questions, pain points, and needs are addressed in real-time by Lou and other attendees.

Limited to just 50 incredible entrepreneurs… The Weekend Workshop is a two-day event where a small group of dedicated, like-minded entrepreneurs come together in an intimate setting to learn, share, discuss, troubleshoot, and make REAL changes to their lives and businesses. Through collective brainstorming, sharing, education, accountability and ongoing support, there is unique opportunity for real growth and results.

No long presentations.  Rather than sitting through hour after hour of presentations and slide shows (some of which might not even be applicable to you), Momentum will combine shorter presentations with interactive workshops and collaborative conversations, as we all have meaningful experiences to share. If you would like to present at Momentum in this short-form style, a link to apply will be sent to you when you register.

Why Momentum is Different

  • Unlike traditional conferences, at Momentum, the focus is on YOU, your brand, and your business. This two-day event includes workshops, presentations, exercises, and opportunities to work on your business and “move the needle” while you are in the room. You will not only learn, but share, network, and start making immediate changes that will positively impact your business.

     

  • Take Action BEFORE You Leave the Conference… All weekend the focus is on YOU. You’ll not only learn what to do, but HOW to do it, and will receive on-site help from Lou and other speakers and attendees in order to make positive changes for yourself and your business right away.

     

  • Get Individual Help During Our 10-person Mastermind Day… While the weekend offers a wealth of information and priceless support via our presenters and workshop sessions, the optional Monday Mastermind event consists of a much deeper dive with a very small group.

     

  • Get Ongoing Support, Resources, and Community AFTER the Event… “Keep Moving Forward” AFTER the event with lifetime access and ongoing support in our members-only community.

     

  • Everyone at Momentum has something to share. It is an environment of not just learning, but collaboration. Lou, presenters, and other attendees are there to help you by sharing their real-world experiences in starting and growing a business, challenges, pitfalls to avoid, as well as real-world strategies, tactics, and personal guidance.

Would You Like to Speak at Momentum?

Applications to Host a Session Are Now CLOSED

I am looking for a small group of dynamic, engaging, and results-oriented presenters to host sessions and/or participate in panels for this year’s event.

By applying to speak, you commit to being able to deliver a focused, valuable, and results-oriented presentation and integrate an interactive workshop element designed to create real results and progress during the session. Sessions should be designed to help every attendee, no matter their business or experience level.

Attendees should walk away feeling educated and excited, having already started to put what they have learned into action.

Momentum works hard to ensure a diverse and inclusive line-up, and encourages both experienced presenters and first-time speakers who have valuable and actionable lessons to share to apply. This opportunity is both a great way to grow your network and gain valuable public speaking experience.

Two Days... Real Results

How It Works:

Days 1 and 2: “One Little Spark”
Interactive Education, Ideation, and Networking

The Momentum room is filled with like-minded entrepreneurs who are there not only to learn, but to help YOU, and bring their real-world experience and expertise in two days full of informative, interactive and inspiring presentations, workshops, and discussions. You will work with other entrepreneurs who have “walked the walk” and will share proven strategies and actionable tactics in a small group setting.

Topics That Will Be Covered Include: Building your personal brand, social media, content marketing, live video, podcasting, tools and resources, customer service, monetization, preparing for what’s next, and more.

You can put what you learned in the morning into action during the workshops. Here, you will be able to discuss your ideas and get your questions answered, not just with other attendees, but with the Momentum speakers as well. You can brainstorm new concepts, get practical, individualized advice, and connect with other entrepreneurs.

Limited to just 50 attendees, there will not only be excellent networking opportunities, but a small group means you will not get “lost in the shuffle,” as you will be surrounded by others who want to learn, grow, share and make positive changes right away.

You’ll also receive a printed Resource Workbook. In this book, Lou and the other speakers will share some of their most valuable and critical tools and resources to improve your business and brand, as well as interactive exercises and guides to help you at the conference and as you continue on your journey.

Keep Moving Forward” AFTER the event with lifetime access and ongoing support in our members-only community.

Day 3 (Optional Add-On): “Keep Moving Forward”
Practical and Tactical 10-Person Mastermind

One day. 10 People. Real Results.

During this collaborative session, you will get dedicated time in the “hot seat” where the focus will be on YOU and your own business, challenges, opportunities, and actionable strategies.

Together, we will audit and review your goals, website, social media accounts, content and marketing strategies, systems, and anything else you need or want to improve, and help you make on-the-spot changes and improvements.

After the event, you’ll not only have access to our private online community, but can also take advantage of a follow-up group video call and optional 30-minute one-on-one call with Lou.
