I attended the 2nd annual Women’s Entrepreneur Summit and received a scholarship to attend this mentoring program. With my mentor’s help, my business is now profitable and continues to grow! We discussed topics like managing social media, goal settings, vision boards, business strategy branding, different types of business entities, work-life balance, and even working on your business vs working in your business.

This mentoring program has helped me to get over feeling hopeless about my business and to start making forward progress. I can honestly say I would not have a business today if it were not for this program.”
