Home School mom, actress, author, producer, and former radio talk show host Sam Sorbo (wife of actor Kevin Sorbo) will explain how she does it all — and in a God-honoring way! You’ll also hear from marketing guru Roy H. Williams, known as “The Wizard of Ads®,” as he discusses advertising and marketing needs of business owners. In addition, Anand Pillai, Managing Director of Leadership Matters, Inc., will show you how to turn an idea into a profitable finished product.

The next day, Wednesday, the focus of this track will be on the digital side. Hear from Todd Adkins and Barnabas Piper of Lifeway Christian Resources, one of the world’s largest providers of Christian resources. Then hear from author, business coach, and consultant Alli Worthington, who has co-founded multiple companies and has helped individuals, small business owners, and Fortune 500 companies to become more successful. Her no-nonsense, guilt-free take on business, family, and balance has led to appearances on The Today Show, Good Morning America, and more.

Lastly, hear from author Jeff Bethke, who (together with wife Alyssa) writes books, makes videos, and creates stuff online that focuses on Jesus, relationships, faith, and family (and sometimes coffee because … of course, right?).
