  • Retiring Copper Kettle Co, a branding and web design agency, to focus on The Modern Conference and Launch, Brand, Grow Community exclusively
  • Launch, Brand, Grow is a membership community full of entrepreneurs where the members themselves are the leader
  • Each month a member hosts a mini-Mastermind in their area of expertise for the community
  • Doing it this way adds a TON of value to the community itself, but also helps to establish the spotlighted member as an expert in their industry
  • Allowing Kyrsten to take a step away from being in the spotlight, which is super aligned with her INFP personality type
  • The Modern Conference idea was sparked in trying to find alignment in business by launching her first virtual summit to the tune of $24,000
  • Deciding to host a second summit, and realizing they needed systems in order to run these summits efficiently and with WAY less stress
  • Running her third conference from the mindset of turning into a revenue stream by streamlining the systems of running an online summit to make it easy for other entrepreneurs to do the same
  • Online conferences benefit the hosts through monetization, email list growth, and networking with speakers to grow your community and confidence as a business owner
  • They benefit the speakers through community growth, affiliate commissions from the all access pass sales, and standing out as an expert in their area of expertise
  • They benefit the attendees by providing free quality content from speakers with the option of a low-priced all access pass to be able to revisit the summit materials once it’s over
  • Money is made from the all access pass sales, sponsorships, affiliate programs, and an upsell at the end of the summit
  • Seeing a ripple effect to her other offerings after each summit – Aligning how you want to do business with hosting a summit


“Make sure your summit has a very specific takeaway.”
