Attention ALL Entrepreneurs and wannabe Entrepreneurs! Please join us on Saturday March 29th, 2014 @ 1pm for an afternoon of discussion and knowledge sharing with Joey Ragona Claudia Harvey. RSVP HERE
Session 1: Creating a Business for True Freedom
Joey Ragona is President & CEO of Strategic Business Academy, a high performance coaching program for passionate entrepreneurs & JDR Investments, a privately owned real estate investment company that focuses on individual joint venture partnerships acquiring selected properties in Ontario for long-term wealth.
As a lifetime entrepreneur, a former radio and celebrity club DJ & music producer & VP in his family business, he traded all of it at age 40 to begin full time real estate investing after realizing he was sacrificing his family, freedom & health & happiness.
After successfully coaching real estate entrepreneurs beginning in 2011, Ragona is an in-demand expert business performance coach helping entrepreneurs get “unstuck” and build a personally fulfilling business.
His lifetime business knowledge, experience and marketing expertise has already helped hundreds of entrepreneurs including individuals from Re/Max, Century-21, Dominion Lending, Ownership Solutions & multiple real estate investors from organizations such as the Real Estate Investment Network & Rock Star Brokerage find clarity and define new systems, strategies, technology and marketing to create a stable business that no longer controls their lives and gives them the true freedom they have wanted.
Even though every entrepreneur wants freedom - very few achieve it. Because most are stuck IN their business all of their lives trying to get ahead, over-worked and without true direction. Joey spent most of his life in this entrepreneurs’ trap & watched his dad pour his life and soul into the family business. After his dad’s life was cut short from Cancer, Joey realized how much we all sacrifice for our businesses. And his mission is to help entrepreneurs stop the cycle of sacrifice and begin a new way of thinking about business and achieving the results with full control and balance of our lives.
This is what you will Learn:
Joey will share his secrets of creating a business that serves you – one that grows beyond you and gives you the true freedom you want in life and business.
