The Poetics

The Poetics • Local Meet-Up

Washington, DC

Friday, February 16, 2024 • 6:00 - 8:00PM

You are invited to a gathering of purpose-driven entrepreneurs and creative leaders for an evening of inspiration and exploration of what it means to live a poetic life filled with meaning and magic.

The Poetics Society

The Poetics Society is a global network of purposeful entrepreneurs leveraging creativity and storytelling to solve big problems and create a better future for ourselves, our communities and the world.

The term poetics derives from the Ancient Greek ποιητικός poietikos "pertaining to poetry"; also "creative" and "productive".

Likewise, we do work that is creative, productive, and meaningful — all while pursuing profits without apology as we each strive to live a truly poetic life.

Harris III

With almost 30 years of experience as a creative entrepreneur, #1 bestselling author, and top-rated speaker, Harris III (“the third”) is the creator of The Poetics Society.

Over his 20+ year career he has spoken and performed live at over 2,000 events to more than 2 million people in all 50 states and more than 30 countries on 6 continents.

After traveling the globe and making a million dollars by age 21, only to go bankrupt a year later, Harris kick-started a decade-long journey to understand the stories we tell ourselves and how they drive all human behavior. Armed with a unique perspective, his career re-exploded as a renowned speaker, storyteller, and entrepreneur.

He is the author of the book The Wonder Switch, director and curator of STORY Conference, founder of The Poetics Guild coaching program, and a sought-after speaker serving global brands like Apple, Google, Disney, and Nike, along with some of the most innovative nonprofit organizations and government agencies in the world.

During this all-day intensive we'll work together to...

  • Reflect on what’s working and what isn’t in your business right now

  • Turn your long-term vision into an actionable 90-day strategy

  • Leverage the Pareto Principle to focus your work on what will generate more revenue without demanding more of your time

  • Review your key business systems in a collaborative environment

  • Hear what's working right now for other successful entrepreneurs

  • Identify healthy work rhythms and establish your ideal week

  • Establish your most important next steps for growth and commit to your "rocks, pebbles, and sand" for the next 90 days

  • Gain clarity around what you need to focus on next so you can hit your goals in 2024 and beyond

If you truly want to grow, you've got to commit time outside the whirlwind of daily work and create an intentional action plan. Otherwise you'll wake up at the end of 2024 in the same situation you are today... maybe even worse.

It's time to generate more profits, and experience more personal freedom, so you can make a bigger impact. Let's start together.
