How to Become a Breakthrough Entrepreneur

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (July 16, 2015) – Hundreds of millions of tweets, posts, chats and blogs are created each day, making it more difficult than ever for new businesses to stand out. In three 10-minute videos released each Thursday from July 23 through Aug. 6, Kauffman FastTrac will help entrepreneurs overcome this challenge. The new video series featuring author Dorie Clark will conclude with a live Twitter chat on Aug. 13, from noon to 1:00 p.m. CDT, using the hashtag #KFTAuthors.

In a conversation-style format, Clark shares powerful tips from her new book, Stand Out: How to Find Your Breakthrough Idea and Build a Following Around It. Clark will coach entrepreneurs on how to generate attention in a crowded competitive landscape, how to build a loyal following and how to cultivate a business’ reputation over time. 

“My goal in this series is to teach entrepreneurs how to develop their brands and how to take control of their reputations,” Clark said. 

The content was developed for entrepreneurs, investors and educators interested in stimulating economic growth through business ownership and development. Each video is free and available to the public.
