#CiscoChat Live: When the Going Gets Tough, Forge Your Own Path

Kelli Glass
Community Manager
Cisco Virtual Event

Join us live on Thursday, October 22 at 10 am PT (and on demand after) as we are joined by a panel of small business owners who took the leap and answered “what’s next?” by striking out on their own. They’ll share their stories of business ownership – the highs, the lows, the tears, the laughs – and offer advice for entrepreneurs who are emerging in these challenging times, starting with failure isn’t the end of the road.

We know that striking out to start your own business can be a daunting endeavor during the best of times. With 36% of small businesses currently in survival mode due to the pandemic, some intrepid entrepreneurs might be looking to create new opportunities for themselves and create new companies. We get it, taking those first steps on your own can be scary, but the payoff can be worth it. 

Join us to learn from others who have taken the leap.
