Never let it be said our Women Grow Business contributors keep their smarts to themselves.
Melanie Spring of Sisarina, a new addition to our team, is doing one of those things that qualifies as, quite simply, a bright idea.
Here’s the gen:
Sisarina & Simply Leap are offering a series called 3 Steps to Success. It’s all about business growth & how to stay focused, know what you need to get the growth you deserve and how to network with the right people.
The three steps are:
- April 20: Step 1 focuses on Vision, Passion & Focus
- May 4: Step 2 gives the Nuts & Bolts
- May 18: Step 3 is all about Purposeful Networking.
Three entrepreneurs speak in each workshop, share their personal experience and offer advice. There will also be guided networking sessions to get you talking about what you need.
I can see this as being great not just for new businesses, but also established growing businesses and non-profits.
If you’re interested and in the DC area, you can join them for $20 a pop or sign up for all 3 at $50. I’m told there are limited spots, so I’d get my foot in the door now, if I were you. It’s being held at James Hoban’s Irish Restaurant in DC’s Dupont Circle, so you’ll not only network and learn, but if you get lucky, you might find a leprechaun or two.
You can register here.
And if you attend, will you let us know what you learned?
