About Holly Sorgen

I am the Executive Director for Community Futures, working in this role since October 2005 and an employee of the organization since 1997. My passion lies with working with new and growing entrepreneurs. It is so exciting and satisfying to work with entrepreneurial people who are ready to take risks, to do the heavy lifting and to see something through from idea to implementation, even with all of the bumps and bruises that come along with starting a business. I have had my own side hustle since 2008, facilitating Economic Development training for EDA Alberta, chairing the Grande Prairie GroYourBiz Advisory Board and providing high level strategic planning and business planning for businesses and non-profits.

To me, entrepreneurship is not a career path, it is a mindset, it is the very nature of a person who is ready to take a leap of faith, to face the naysayers and opponents and even in the face of adversity, stand their ground, stay the course and pursue what they are passionate about.

My job is about connecting dots – to connect clients to the people, resources, information, and money they need to make a new venture successful. I do not know everything, but I do know someone who knows what I do not and that to me is invaluable. Motivational Speaker, Jim Rohn famously said that we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with. I aspire to surround myself with people who are smarter than I am in any number of areas. As entrepreneurs we need to do the same. Legendary CFL Football Player, Michael “Pinball” Clemons said in a recent talk he made in Grande Prairie, “If you are the smartest person in the room, then that is your own fault…”

In my session, I will talk about what motivates female entrepreneurs, what makes strong businesses and why we are challenged to feel good about making money.
