Women are starting more new businesses than at any other time in history! It's an exciting time to be a female entrepreneur. Working Women's mission is to be a support system for enterprising women who are following their dream. That's why we're hosting an educational breakfast with the help of our community sponsor in Sarasota: Goodwill.
Consider all the great things you have accomplished in your life so far; your experience, knowledge and know how. They are all part of You 1.0. These are the critical skills that got you to this point. The Entrepreneur Source's Susan Mell will show you how to use those critical skills to propel you to You 2.0 and go from frustration to freedom during breakfast.
