We hope that you will join us for a very special event.

ann-smarty-print-01Monday, January 13, 2014 at noon marks both an end and a beginning. It will be the very last time the Women Grow Business chat takes place on Twitter. It also ushers in the era of our monthly discussions here at Web.com.

Our monthly Twitter chats were started by our second editor, Shonali Burke who also started our community hashtag #wgbiz. She’s been a guest of the chat, as have I, as has our founding editor, Jill Foster.

In coming days, a round-up of the chats will be published, with a list of the other women-centric chats that cross with the business audience.

We’ll also have information on how you can join the new discussions here!
