Unspoken Strategies for Successful Entrepreneurship

Friday, March 15, 2019 - 9:00am

From FABWOMEN: The life of an entrepreneur comes with a series of highs and lows. The great thing is you are in charge of your own destiny, and sometimes the challenge is, you’re in charge of your own destiny. Entrepreneurship doesn’t come in a neat little box with instructions; we learn through experience and failure. But, how would you like to avoid some of those failures by learning from the mistakes of other entrepreneurs that have walked in your path?

  • Insight about the “stuff nobody tells you before you get started”
  • Clearer understanding of what the demands of entrepreneurship looks like
  • Additional considerations that factor into decisions about starting or continuing an entrepreneurial initiative
  • Resources to make your life easier
