Profit First best-selling author Mike Michalowicz and five other industry leaders will be featured at the Small Business Retreat

“There are more small businesses than ever and they are all trying to survive in an unpredictable market, often without personal or professional support. As a solopreneur myself, I understand the challenges this presents, said Pat Miller, founder of The Idea Collective.

The Idea Collective, a membership community of 1,200 small business owners operating in 15 states across the United States and four countries around the world, announces the return of its Small Business Retreat scheduled for November 10-12, 2022, at the Grand Geneva Resort in Lake Geneva, WI.

The Idea Collective Small Business Retreat, presented by Bank Five Nine, is the annual meeting of the Midwest small business community. It’s an opportunity for solopreneurs to come together face-to-face with colleagues and peers who are also building their dream businesses to be inspired, learn from the journeys of notable industry leaders, and have fun while doing it.

“There are more small businesses than ever, and they’re all trying to survive in an unpredictable market, often without support – personally or professionally,” said Pat Miller, founder of The Idea Collective. “As a solopreneur myself, I understand the challenges this presents. I know the struggles of isolation and loneliness, limited access to traditional resources, and lack of confidence in pursuing my entrepreneurial dream without net.

“Retirement is one way I’ve found to help alleviate some of those barriers for others. This annual gathering was deliberately designed to help small business owners celebrate their accomplishments while encouraging everyone in need to keep moving forward,” Miller continued.

This year’s event includes a mentoring session, five keynote presentations, 17 workshops, 22 laser-focused coaching opportunities and numerous networking opportunities. Participants of the three-day retreat will have the opportunity to connect with the following keynote speakers:

  • Mike Michalowicz – Entrepreneur behind three multi-million dollar businesses and author of Profit First, Clockwork, The Pumpkin Plan and Fix This Next. Michalowicz will virtually join his mentoring session.
  • Precious L. Williams – 13-time National Business Pitch Champion who has been featured on ABC’s “Shark Tank” Season 8, Forbes Magazine, CNN, ABC, MSNBC, Wall Street Journal, Upscale Magazine, and more .
  • Jack Butcher – Leading online entrepreneur who teaches small business owners how to turn knowledge into online products that sell.
  • Melina Palmer — Her podcast, The Brainy Business, is downloadable in over 160 countries; she has also contributed to research for the Association for Consumer Research, Filene Research Institute and edits the Behavioral Economics & Business column for Inc Magazine.
  • Matt Brauning – Former writer for Forbes, two-time bestselling author, and host of the top-tier podcast The Driven Entrepreneur, syndicated to 16 AM/FM stations coast-to-coast. He also speaks at the Harvard Club, TEDx, NASDAQ and the United States Air Force Academy.
