BIG Believe Inspire Grow NJ Women's Expo in Summit

The SEVENTH Annual B.I.G. Expo of Women Entrepreneurs will be held on June 13 from 10 am until 1 pm at Twin Maples, 214 Springfield Avenue in Summit. Any woman who has a business can exhibit at the Expo, including multi-level vendors; jewelry; skin care; fitness facilities; moving services; legal services; catering; book sales; parenting classes; plastic surgery; photography; tutoring; nutrition and wellness; college planning; promotional services; career and educational services, day spas; ADHD coaching; kitchen design; professional theatre, web and graphic design; software; hair care and more. About 13 exhibitor spaces are currently available, and will be available until space sells out. Exhibitors must be members of the Summit/New Providence Berkeley Heights BIG pod. Annual memberships are available for $299 per year, or monthly for $29.95. Membership includes monthly in-person meetings on a variety of topics designed to empower women, as well as members-only Facebook pages, webinars, special events, and promotional opportunities. The cost to exhibit is $50. These talented women will share their products and services in a fun, informative trade show format. Led by Melanie Wilson and assisted by Lisa DiSciullo, both of Summit, the Summit/New Providence/Berkeley Heights chapter of B.I.G. (Believe, Inspire, Grow), a, support, education and networking group for women entrepreneurs, with over 100 members, has grown to the largest in the multi-state network. "At B.I.G.," Wilson said, "We strive to empower women at all stages of their professional pursuits, from stay at home mothers looking to re-engage in the workforce, to seasoned entrepreneurs looking to grow their business and career executives looking to make a change." At last year's Expo, some came for the jewelry and skin care products for sale. Others showed up to be inspired by dozens of local entrepreneurial women who shared advice and ideas on how to launch a business. All left impressed with the bountiful talent of the women who displayed their wares. "The Expo gave the exhibitors an opportunity to reach a hungry marketplace," Wilson said. "The women who attended were smart and curious. As B.I.G. members, the exhibitors have learned to grow their businesses with regular monthly workshops on topics such as search engine optimization, brand building, social media, and legal concerns." Not all topics at the monthly meetings are “hard-core”business topics though, she said. “At BIG,” she said, “We know that ALL aspects of a woman's life are important to her well being, and that includes home, health, fashion, family etc. You might see a program on caring for your aging parents just as much as you would see one on utilizing LinkedIn or website development. In fact, two of our most highly-attended pod meetings were on plastic surgery alternatives and hormones.” Rupa Kale, a longtime B.I.G. member and realtor with The Gosselin Group, says, "My favorite part of the expo is learning about the other businesses. I also love the positive almost electric vibe of the whole space. I love hobnobbing with other smart, creative and forward-thinking women." Betsy Stoeber, owner of Brain Balance Achievement Center in Summit, said, "The Expo gave me a true sense of belonging to a community of women entrepreneurs in Summit-- I can't wait to build on the connections made!" Wilson said that each monthly meeting provides a safe environment and offers face-to-face support from a like-minded tribe of peers. Since every woman has special gifts and talents, the power of a community of women working together can help every woman discover theirs. BIG offers the inspiration, the community, and the tools you need to move forward professionally and personally, she said.
