One important part of being an entrepreneur is networking with other professionals. And, we all know there are only a few seconds to make that great first impression. One part of networking that you can count on is the elevator speech. It's absolutely critical to effectively communicate the most important aspects of your business within those first few seconds of responding to "what do you do".

Preparing yourself for year-end...what you should be doing now?

Pittsburgh North Regional Chamber of Commerce

**Please RSVP to save your seat! :-) Our max capacity is 22 people. Masks recommended. The meeting room has been thoroughly cleaned between meetings and is set up for safe social distancing.** We will discuss how to plan and prepare yourself now for the 2020 year-end. Yes, it feels like 2020 has lasted a lifetime already but it will come to an end. For many, it has been a year of uncertainty and potentially different types of income (think PUA and PPP.) What can you do to make sure you are as prepared as possible for the results? Let's have a good discussion about what we know, what we may still be waiting for clarification on and how the tax landscape is looking for 2020. Presented by Elizabeth (Li) Connolly of Connolly Steele + Company www.connollysteele.com Li Connolly has been in the business of helping clients make sense of financial matters for more than 25 years. As the founding owner of both Connolly, Steele & Company, a CPA firm in business for almost 25 years, and CSC Financial Strategies, her goal is to educate clients and provide clarity on tax and financial planning concerns. Li serves her clients with the belief that it is most important that they are fully informed when making important financial decisions. Li is proud to be a life-long Pittsburgh resident. After graduating from Duquesne University in 1988 and working for several years in the auditing department of Touche Ross, she spent some time as controller at Longue Vue Club before leaving with the entrepreneurial intent to be in business for herself and control her own destiny. Connolly, Steele & Company was formed to provide small to medium sized businesses and individuals with support with tax and financial compliance along with customized strategies for maximizing the after-tax enjoyment of their money. *Pittsburgh Women's Mastermind is for women entrepreneurs who want to experience personal and professional growth in a supportive and inspiring group.
