Tuesday evening I went to a Wisconsin Women Entrepreneurs Southcentral Chapter, Inc. monthly dinner meeting. The event included networking, dinner, and a panel discussion.
As a new entrepreneur this was one of the most interesting, knowledge gaining, empowering evenings I have experienced. I had attended another event recently so I was becoming familiar and comfortable with talking one-on-one about who I am and what it is that I do. After the great dinner each of us had to stand and in approximately 30 seconds introduce ourselves and what we do. I really enjoyed seeing and hearing so many women from a wide variety of business areas, stand up and proudly state what they did. I felt honored and proud to be even a small part of such a group. Next, each table talked and prepared a question for the panel to answer. I learned that many of the women had the same questions and concerns that I do. How to market your business? What makes you unique? Should I offer discounts? and so on.
My wish for all new business owners is that they are all able to attend a similar event & learn so much in such a short period of time.
Thank you Sally
