We started the Women (men are welcome) Business Startup group to empower and inspire women to become entrepreneurs. A large portion of us are not following our passions. We share our business ideas, but we do not take action to turn our ideas into a business or innovation. We realized that we are not doing what we are passionate about and not taking any risks to do something more fulfilling and rewarding. We want the women in our group to gain the freedom, control, and flexibility that we all desire. We have monthly networking, skill building, and sessions to guide us through the steps of creating a business taught by successful entrepreneurs. We meet to receive assistance, share lessons learned, and discuss the challenges and rewards of owning a business. Each series will have time allotted for sharing our paths to entrepreneurship and create solutions to help each other achieve our goals.
