Owning a Business and a Caregiving Experience, Episode 1


Owning a Business and a Caregiving Experience, Episode 1


At our most recent National Caregiving Conference, our panel discussion, Owning a Small Business and a Caregiving Experience, was a hit. We recognized the need for executives and small business owners to gather to talk about how they keep their business running while a caregiving experience seems to run their lives.

To connect owners, we're launching a one-hour monthly virtual chat on Zoom with Denise M. Brown, founder of Caregiving.com who helps her parents, and Jeff Peterson, Jeff has been self-employed as a small business for over 20 years. He recently launched ONE LOVE COACHING and CONSULTING LLC and cares for his wife.

Join Denise and Jeff on the third Thursday of every month at 8 p.m. ET (7 p.m. CT, 6 p.m. MT, 5 p.m. PT). We'll facilitate conversations about our challenges and how we resolve them.

Watch our first episode above. Please feel free to share your own insights and experiences in our comment section, below.

Our next virtual chat will take place on February 21 at 8 p.m. ET. Watch our Owning Episodes.
