    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

    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!

    Lemonade Stand with Tory Johnson

    When life hands you lemons, head to the DC expo to talk to Women For Hire CEO Tory Johnson about how to make your own lemonade. From 10:30am to 12:30pm, she’ll be at the Lemonade Stand to chat with attendees and give away complimentary copies of her best-selling book, FIRED TO HIRED, courtesy of the Transportation Security Administration. (Quantities are limited.)
