    Is Entrepreneurship Right for You?

    Featuring SPECIAL GUEST: Small Business Coach Michelle Pippin

    “Replace Your Current (or Previous) Income: Where to Start, What to Do, and Why You Must Start Now!” Join us for a special session during the Women For Hire Career Expo. This is a candid conversation about starting and growing YOUR small business — to turn your passion to profit. Throughout the event, Michelle—along with Tory Johnson—will tackle your toughest small business challenges. And they’ll introduce you to the Spark & Hustle National Tour—with special savings too.

    Benefit from our Perfect Pitch Program Hosted By Toastmasters International – District 30

    In this session you’ll work with coaches to master that all-important one sentence to sell yourself.

    Whether you’re a seasoned executive, a recent college grad or an entrepreneur, we all must know how to introduce ourselves in a way that’s clear, concise and compelling. Yet most people don’t have that opening sentence down.

    This session will help change that and leave you feeling empowered and confident. Get the boost you need with coaches from District 30 Toastmasters!
