Join the ELLA community for “Refocusing your mindset,” the next fireside chat in ELLA’s Entrepreneurial Insights series, where entrepreneurs give practical tips for growing your business.
This online event is free to attend and will take place on Thursday, Jan. 28 at 12 p.m.
The mindset of an entrepreneur is unlike any other – resilient, and full of grit, humility and determination. But how do you avoid overwhelm at the start of a new year and set yourself up for long-term success? The purpose of this insights chat is to refresh and refocus your entrepreneurial mindset, for 2021 growth.
Join Nicole Troster, ELLA manager, in discussion with Marianna Michael, ELLA entrepreneur-in-residence, and Aleena Mazhar, partner and managing director at FUSE Create, for this month’s insights chat. Learn more about their stories and personal journeys, the difference between a growth and a fixed mindset, and how to stay focused.
York University alumna Michael began her career as a claims adjuster, before working for some of North America’s largest multinational insurers. Her experience includes complex environmental, liability and property damage claims, as well as leading teams of internal and external litigation lawyers. Michael currently serves as director of insurance with Liberty (formerly Algonquin Power and Utilities Corp.). She has been voted a Top 10 under 40 Insurance Broker by her peers and was awarded the inaugural Women Creating Legacy in Insurance Scholarship from Aviva.
