    Women's Business Connection Education Series

    From Big Idea to Bold Business Plan

    Women-owned businesses are the fasting-growing segment entering the economy, but they often fail to reach their full potential due to a lack of strategy, planning, resources… and often, the confidence to move forward!

    Imagine if you could…

    •   Gain clarity about your company’s mission and generate a strategic vision for your business

    •   Increase your self-awareness and identify barriers getting in the way of progress

    •   Adopt a money mindset that suits your entrepreneurial style

    •   Create realistic financial projections that position your business for growth

    •   Develop and implement marketing-driven goals and objectives

    •   Understand how to use a business plan to expand opportunities

    •   Have access to mentors for support, guidance and personal accountability

    •   Meet new contacts in a similar phase of business growth and development

    If you answered “yes” to any of the above, then our From Big Idea to Bold Business Plan workshop series is for you.  Make 2016 the year you stop thinking about a plan, and instead, take action to create one!

    Whether you own a start-up or established business, this program is designed to provide you, the woman business owner (WBO), with the practical knowledge and tools necessary to develop a plan tailored to your unique situation, and in real-time.  Learn from a team of business experts, while taking advantage of mentoring offered during and between classes.  Enrollment is limited to 16 participants, to provide high levels of peer interaction and personalized attention.
