The Struggle is Real: Expect the Unexpected

  • Work Nicer Coworking (Roxbury) 1006 11 Avenue Southwest, #200 Calgary, AB, T2R 0G3 Canada (map)

Hosted by ATB Business


As an entrepreneur, you’re no stranger to facing unexpected circumstances; they’re a part of daily life. There’s often no clear-cut line between balancing personal and professional, so when life happens, it happens to you AND your business.

What do you do when unforeseen challenges arise and it feels like fires are burning out of control?

Maybe you feel a bit guilty taking care of yourself in the middle of it all. Maybe you don’t know who to talk to about what’s going on. Maybe you’re not sure if you can keep running your business the way you want.

Maybe, you don’t have to go through this alone.

Join us on Nov. 1st at Work Nicer Roxbury to hear from three local entrepreneurs who know first-hand what it’s like to face the unexpected, how it impacted their lives and businesses, and what each of them learned in the process. From grieving the death of a friend and colleague to coping with the fallout of a sudden layoff, you’ll hear raw and unflinching stories of what being an entrepreneur is really about—and how to keep going.

What is #theStruggleYYC?

They say that being an entrepreneur is a roller coaster ride, but you probably hear more about the highs than the lows. The struggle is indeed very real. We’re creating a safe space to share the real and raw stories of starting and running a business. The good, the bad, the ugly. And those little moments that keep you going against the odds. Because you don’t have to go it alone.

Join us for local beers, refreshments and war stories at Work Nicer’s Roxbury coworking space. Come with an open mind; leave with a more resilient mindset of what it means to be an entrepreneur today.
