Know what you don’t know…then learn it!

Successful entremanures know all the aspects of their business.  If they dont, they learn them no matter how “outside of their comfort zone” the aspect seems.  There is no “comfort zone” in entremanureship.

Learn from two of the most successful and entertaining Entrepreneurs in North Carolina:

Tom Lotrecchiano and Joe Schmidt find great joy in sharing their journey of being entrepreneurs over the last 15 years with businesses such as Art.com and CanvasonDemand.com. CanvasonDemand.com was acquired by CafePress. CaféPress had an IPO in Feb 2012. Tom and Joe were Ernst & Young Entrepreneurs of the Year finalists in 2008, and CanvasonDemand was included in the INC 500.

They have delighted thousands during their public presentations, stories about their business adventures which range from hilarious to heart-wrenching. They refer to their shrewd (and sometimes outrageously unconventional) wisdom gained from a combination of education and real-life experiences as Entremanureship!

They will share their often hilarious lessons learned while launching seven businesses in seven months! They will also present their sales, marketing and e-commerce experiences.
