Elusive Moose – What’s in a name?

Find Your Moose 2016 is our second annual business conference for software developers. Elusive Moose is an online resource created to help developers more effectively run their businesses with the ultimate goal of maintaining a healthy work life. The conference and website both serve our mission to provide attendees and members with informative, actionable, and inspiring content created by experts on all aspects of running a software development and consulting practice. Elusive Moose was founded by Molly Connolly and Jason Mundok, custom software development consultants and business coaches with a combined 30+ years of experience.

Why Elusive Moose? Here’s the story…

Molly Connolly took three business trips to Alaska. During each visit, she hoped to see a real live moose. She never saw one even though she intentionally visited where the locals saw them on a regular basis. She wondered why she struggled with something that seemed so easy, and never seemed to be a problem for others. For some reason, the moose eluded Molly.

You likely have no problem doing most of what you do with your work, yet there are challenges that get in your way, cause you stress, and prevent you from truly enjoying what you do. The solutions to these challenges seem like they should be easy to see and implement, but they elude you like Molly’s moose! Those solutions are your “elusive moose” and we’re here to help you find them.

Who Are You?

You are software developers specializing in a wide variety of industries who provide your clients with the invaluable technical solutions they need to get to the next level. You are passionate about this work, even though it isn’t easy. You’re a great developer but maybe you’ve never managed a team, or had to do sales and marketing and project management and development and you’re trying to make it all work. You know you can make more money, run your business more efficiently, take more vacations…if you just had more time. This conference is focused specifically on helping you rethink your limitations and identify a clear path to make changes for your company that will help you achieve your goals.

We hope you’ll join us in Chicago on September 7 & 8. Together we will help you Find Your Moose and invite you to help others find theirs.
