**COVID19 (Coronavirus) Update** 04/01/2020**
We know how much you’d like to come together to learn and share. Unfortunately, we will be moving this event for 2020 to an online event. This was a hard decision to make but an important one to make sure that everyone stays safe.
All three speakers have agreed to video there presentations and all tickets will be converted to access the online summit on May 5, 2020. All registered attendees will receive before May 5, 2020 login instructions and password for the event. All profits will also continue to support the Washington State Small Business Development Center. We know that business owners are flexible and we appreciate your support!
WHY DOES THIS EVENT EXIST?: We believe that the local business community needs a place to learn from other business owner’s success and failures, marketing techniques and other ways to grow and expand your business. We do this to give back, not to make a profit, so that everyone can succeed in business.

Talk & Roll
Choosing the Positive Path to getting where you want to go
Sponsored by: Evergreen Business Capital
Bungee jumping, international travel, parenting, are all examples of very challenging tasks. And from Barry’s perspective, even more so while sitting in my wheelchair. In this presentation Barry will share how embracing the power of asking for help, having fun and ones own attitude will help everyone see they have the ability to achieve anything they want and truly enjoy life!
For over 20 years, Barry has had the pleasure of traveling all over the world to make hundreds of presentations to organizations, small businesses and Fortune 500 companies, inspiring audiences to strive for greater levels of accomplishment by setting goals that lead to success.
Barry was 22 years old when a near-fatal motorcycle crash completely and permanently altered almost everything I knew about life. Barry discovered early in recovery that choosing to live with a genuinely positive attitude, setting realistic and achievable goals and learning to ask for help makes anything possible.
