Title: Your Fab Five: Essential Ingredients for the Success of Your Business


Presenter: Marianne Emma Jeff


Most women in business are overwhelmed and under prepared because they focus upon working in their business not ON their business. In this presentation learn to bring it back to basics and implement The Fab Five, so that you may streamline your time, prioritize, and achieve high impact results and visibility for your business. Come ready to take notes and review your tactics and strategies; and leave with simple, clear, next action steps to implement right away. This presentation is designed for women who are just starting their business or women who need to make a bigger impact and grow their businesses.

Title: The Power of Why: How to Bring You to Your Business and Make it Irresistibly Attractive


Panelists: Nicola Borland from Nicola Borland Photography, Hazel Ortega from Ortega Counseling Center, Liz Jinzo from DESI Services, Joanna Vargas from The Ft Factor Studio, Brandye Manigat from Life Love Libido


So many women decide to launch their businesses after what Michael Gerber describes as an “Entrepreneurial Seizure!” This jolts them into action and as women we are great at getting things done. Unfortunately this rush into action skips a foundational step, establishing WHY! We may read about vision, mission and about “why statements,” but it is much more powerful to see and hear from successful women in business. This panel discussion, featuring graduates of The Women's Business Momentum Center Strong Start Program, will show how powerful “why” can be, and how it can drive and shape your business to be truly one of a kind rising far beyond the competition.

1:45 pm - 2:00 pm


2:00 pm - 2:45 pm

Title: Be Bold, Be Resourceful


Presenter: Salvatrice Cummo from PCC Small Business Development Center


Hear about tools and resources available for entrepreneurs when launching a new business or expanding an existing business. Either way, these tools will directly affect the profitability, value and success of your company.

2:45 pm - 3:00 pm
