Entrepeneurs ToolkitInventing is not for the faint of heart. Trying to complete an invention and make money from it is tiring work. Have you ever felt so drained you aren’t sure you have the energy to see your invention through to the end?

The Jackson Inventors’ Network will be discussing the “One-Man-Band” Syndrome at its next meeting.

How can an inventor achieve his/her dreams without running themselves into the ground?

We are going to try something a little different this month. Instead of inviting a local expert to speak with us, we will be watching a 30-minute presentation from The Entrepreneur’s Toolkit, one of a 24-part lecture series offered by The Great Courses program. The video features Ball State professor Michael G. Goldsby,  who is Stoops Distinguished Professor of Entrepreneurship and Executive Director.  After the video presentation, there will be a group discussion about the issue of Entrepreneurial Exhaustion.

We hope you will join us on Aug. 25, and come prepared to share with the group your exhaustion experiences … and more importantly techniques you have learned to protect your health, your sanity and your loved ones from this inevitable tribulation.
