How I Built My 7 Figure Business with No Funding

If you are reading this, you have a big vision & the desire to build your own empire. I bet your ultimate goal is to grow your business into a multiple 7 figure business & beyond. Am I right so far?

Then you are in the right place!

The best way to learn how to get there is to listen to those who have achieved what you are after. Think about it - if you haven't generated 7 figures in your business (yet), you wouldn't know what it takes to get there & how that makes you feel, right?

This is why I am super pumped to have you at this event as part of the Growth-Driven Entrepreneurs Meetup. There will be 4 guest speakers who will share their stories.

Make no mistake, this is not going to be one of those sugar-coated "this is how I did it" storytelling sessions. Instead, this is more like taking a sneak peek at closed-door conversations lead by 7 figure entrepreneurs.


OK then hit this RSVP button & reserve your seat right now!

Who is this for?

This event is best suited for people who are considering to start a business, already started a business and seasoned entrepreneurs who have big goals.

What you will experience at this event:

1. You will hear what stood in their way at each milestone they went through.

2. You will hear about their strategies to overcome their beliefs.

3. You can ask questions relating to your business.

4. You will hear about what they would do differently if they are to start all over again.

5. You can take away a few actionable tips from these entrepreneurs to be sure you stay on track with your business.

What attendees are saying:

“Maiko's events are very dynamic and personal. I wasn’t afraid to speak up and took away several concrete action steps. I’ve been to other events where I forget it the minute I walk out the door, but this event was different and very helpful."
