    It's Lonely

    If you’re the first in your family to start a business, it’s up to you to blaze your own trail. But without a built-in support system, it can be a very lonely journey.

    It's Uncertain

    What happens when you face a new challenge for the first time? It’s really hard to know if you’re making the right decisions, which leads to anxiety.

    It's Risky

    1st Gen Entrepreneurs miss out on the advantages of growing up in an entrepreneurial family. Going it alone adds risk and compounds the pressure. As if it’s not hard enough already!

    Inside the community, you can share your wins and “learns”, ask questions, ask for help, and much more. As you get to know your fellow members, trust and relationships begin to form.


    You’re likely an expert in your industry, right? But what about all the other industries you know little about? Fill in your knowledge gaps and get practical advice from your fellow 1st Gens.

    When you’re the boss, who holds you accountable? Nobody, that’s who. By sharing and discussing your monthly goals with your peers, you can keep moving forward in your business with positive peer pressure.
