Entrepreneurship by Mindy McCubbin with Truman Wealth Advisors

From lack of product-market fit to disharmony on the team, we’ll break down the top 20 reasons for startup failure.

We will also explore how building a business on cash flow has become a bit of a “lost art” and pose a list of 20 questions an entrepreneur can ask herself before raising outside funds.

This will be a fun, fast paced and lively discussion. Nothing needed but your entrepreneurial enthusiasm.

Meet Your Instructor, Mindy McCubbin

“I am an experienced and successful investor, a financial news junkie, world traveler and pod-cast nerd. I am also a mom, a wife, a friend, a sister, a daughter, a runner and a yogi. I have dreams and passions and hopes for my future and my family's well-being. So I get where you're coming from.

I have over a decade of experience as both an institutional public market and private market investor. I also have training as part of an angel investor network. And while credentials are no replacement for authentic experience, I do have a few things I’ve done that I am proud of. I have a degree in Finance from Truman State University and a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from St. Louis University. I have been honored as both an outstanding alumnus from as well as serving as the commencement speaker from my alma mater.
