Westside Early Stage Entrepreneur Peer Support (WESEPS)

What we're about

For those in the desert on their entrepreneurial journey.

This group is a peer-to-peer boot camp for entrepreneurs who are tired of being stuck at the early stage level. We're here to offer support, encouragement, and advice to our fellow entrepreneurs.

There are a lot of groups out there for folks already established in business but this group is for those who are not yet there.

There is no judgement. Doesn't matter if you're a grandparent wanting to sell your own homemade jewelry or a recent college grad with a woke startup idea to change the world. You're welcome and you're supported.

Peer Pressure: A Peer Coaching Event
Virtual Zoom Webinar

Looking to meet new professional contacts but want to skip the small talk? Interested in getting help in facing work challenges head on? Ready to learn the best way to have positive and supportive professional relationships to become a better leader?

Welcome to the power of peer coaching.

Peer coaching is awesome! It's a mutually supportive, powerful form of learning and development where peers work together to reflect, share ideas, teach one another, or solve problems in the workplace through deep inquiry, accountability, direct feedback, and encouragement.

Peer coaching also helps build emotional intelligence, which is indispensable when stepping into leadership positions. The best leaders take the time to learn and practice skills like active listening, empathy, open communication and effective feedback, which can all be learned through practicing successful peer coaching relationships.
