‘The Entrepreneur UpSpiral’ Focus of Wednesday’s MIT Enterprise Forum

The MIT Enterprise Forum Central Coast will present “The Entrepreneur UpSpiral: Understanding the Quantified Self” from 5 to 8 p.m. this Wednesday, Feb. 20, at the Cabrillo Pavilion Arts Center, 1118 E. Cabrillo Blvd. in Santa Barbara.

Online registration is now closed, but registration will be available in the lobby of the venue.

The cost is $40 for general admission and $15 for students with ID.

Being an entrepreneur by definition is challenging. The risks are often significant and the stress and hours are grueling. Owning your own business can be one of the most taxing endeavors an individual can take on.

The MIT Enterprise Forum will provide a framework to help entrepreneurs get into their UpSpiral™, which keeps their “creative energy and leadership” positive, thriving and flourishing.

Esteemed keynote speaker Dr. William Larkin will outline this growing facet of positive psychology and discuss the application of the UpSpiral for start-ups and entrepreneurs and how maintaining a positive organizational flow significantly increases your probability of success.

Other speakers include Christopher Means of DigiFit, business strategy consultant Gary Morais and John Amschler of Quantified Self.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
