Debra Gould to Speak at HOPE 2012 Symposium
(TORONTO) September 24, 2012 – At the HOPE Symposium on September 29, professionals and entrepreneurs will address the issues of integrity in business, mind-body integration, and models of integrity.
The business panel feature experts with a range of experience and points of view. For example, Debra Gould (also known as both The Voice of Possibility and The Staging Diva), will debunk the outdated assumptions that “marketing” or “making a lot of money” mean you have to leave your integrity at the door.
In her presentation, “Feeling Good About Your Business: How To Make More Money Without Sacrificing Your Integrity,” Gould helps entrepreneurs and life coaches learn how to attract clients, boost sales and grow their business with integrity and without manipulation.
Gould says, “When you finally decide to give up the security of a regular job to start your own business, a world of possibility opens up. Unfortunately, some business owners, especially those motivated by helping others, are often afraid to charge what they’re worth. I want to help new entrepreneurs achieve balance and realize that there’s nothing wrong with being well-paid for their expertise,” Gould explains.
Debra Gould has been a serial entrepreneur for almost 25 years. As president of Voice Of Possibility Group Inc., her mission is helping people realize the many possibilities that lie around the next corner when they build a business around their passions.
