This year’s Entrepreneurs in Motion Breakfast showcases LeeAnn Carlson, CEO of Lauren's Hope, as the keynote speaker. Carlson will take the audience on her entrepreneurial journey, highlighting her rise to success. She will also provide the audience insight as to the traits necessary to create and achieve success within their businesses.
Lauren’s Hope was founded when Carlson created several interchangeable medical alert bracelets as a favor for a friend’s teenage daughter, Lauren. Until that point, Lauren had been unwilling to wear medical alert jewelry for her Type 1 Diabetes because everything on the market was unattractive and drew what she felt was unwanted attention to her diagnosis. Since then Lauren’s Hope has grown from home-based to employ nearly two dozen full-time and several part-time team members in its Riverside operations. Lauren’s Hope has been featured by QVC, People Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, InStyle Magazine, Family Circle, Woman's Day, and numerous other national and local publications.
After her presentation, Carlson will be the honorary judge of an abbreviated Pitch ON!, featuring five BOOST Lee’s Summit clients. Each BOOST participant will give a short pitch about their efforts to create or expand their business. This will be an interactive experience between Carlson, the audience and the entrepreneurs.
