Celebrated healthcare entrepreneur Vick Tipnes has announced a three-day event for business leaders and entrepreneurs, Rise Conference 2023. The conference, which will run from June 16 to June 18, is the first of its kind in Tampa, Florida, and will bring together some of the world’s top entrepreneurs who will share their journeys, their highs and lows, and valuable business tips/lessons learned.
During the three days, the attendees will learn from other entrepreneurs like endurance athlete and motivational speaker, David Goggins. David is the only member of the US armed forces to complete SEAL training, the Air Force Tactical Air Controller training, and the US Army Ranger School. He has completed over 60 ultra-marathons, triathlons, and ultra-triathlons, setting new world records. David once held the Guinness World Record for pull-ups, finishing 4030 pull-ups in 17 hours.
Vick Tipnes will also share his story from zero to a millionaire. Vick is the founder and CEO of Blackstone Medical Services, the company has made the INC. 5000 List for six consecutive years. Vick is also the founder of one of the leading primary care physician companies, Tipnes Health. Vick has built all this in 10 years.
Vick grew up entrepreneurial, and by the time he was in his mid-twenties, he had already built his first venture- a health company. Unfortunately, he lost everything. In a matter of months, Vick Tipnes was back to zero. He was going through a divorce, and on top of that, his parents had just died, and he had an active case in court. Vick had been sued by his brothers. To get out of it, he sold his company, but he didn’t make much from the sale. While the business sold for $9M, Vick only got $150K.
Vick began working at the company that bought him out to support himself. It was then that he heard about sleep-testing devices. Vick started Blackstone Medical Services in his kitchen. Blackstone Medical is now the largest service provider in the home sleep testing industry.
Vick is also the founder of The Rise Conference and a top-selling author who wrote one of Amazon’s bestsellers, Did You Sell Your Soul?
Through The Rise Conference, Vick provides business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs with a venue to learn real business and sales techniques not often taught in schools as he inspires and encourages them. He says his goal is to make valuable information more accessible to business owners so they don’t make similar mistakes.
“I want to teach driven individuals about the skills I have learned, business advice, how to scale a business to becoming part of the 1%, and how to build great relationships. That’s why I created The Rise Conference. It stands for rising to your fullest potential in four areas of life to have the Max Life you always dreamed of. The four quadrants of a Max Life are personal, relationships, business, and community,” Vick says. For more information about Rise Conference 2023, check out their website.
