Course Description

It began with a conversation. Last year, women in business throughout our community shared about confidence, risk-taking, collaboration over competition, and basics of starting a business. Now that we have this foundation, it is time to take the inspiration and put it into action.

Are you ready for the tools to get your business off the launching pad? Have you been waiting for the right time to set achievable goals? Is your business growing more rapidly day by day, and you need a refreshed strategic plan? It is time to build your business toolkit with the essentials for success.

Come learn from a diverse group of women business leaders, on topics that will leave you ready to tackle the goals ahead of you. We will focus on not only business methods that have worked for generations, but also new trends that have equipped business owners throughout a pandemic. Learn creative ways to organize your office space and achieve a work-life balance. Gain life-long skills that help with branding, social media marketing, community engagement, and more. You will leave this event with tools that help you track your business’ progress and be able to practice new skills in leadership, communication, hiring, developing, management, financial skills, and more.

We believe that you will not only be inspired, encouraged, and connected after this event, you will be better equipped with actionable steps to manage and foster a successful business. Network and learn from the experts around us.

Whether you are a starting a company on your own or ready to go to the next level with your established business; then this event is for you. We can’t wait to meet YOU!
