The Small Business Boot Camp for Women 2013 was a Big Success!!!

Small Business Boot Camp-1

The Small Business Boot Camp for Women took place on Saturday, July 13, 2013 in New York City at the Doubletree Metropolitan hotel.  It was a great day for all in attendance. There were over 50 women there who received valuable and practical information that they can take home and use right away to help take their businesses to the next level.

Alexandra Chou wowed the crowd with tips on how to set up your business for financial success right from the start.   She was amazing and shared tips and secrets that business owners could use right away.

Laurie Marshall surprised many of the attendees with her information on when to seek a trademark for your business and the importance of doing so right from the start.

Then Nicole McGarrell from Constant Contact really delivered on her content of how to use email marketing and social media in your marketing strategy in order to be successful in today’s new economy.  She wowed the crowd with her level of knowledge and expertise.

Then Patty Lennon showed all attendees how they could raise money for their businesses right away using crowdfunding.  She also educated everyone on the new crowdfunding platforms that currently exists.

By this time everyone was in awe with excitement and after taking an off the cuff poll of the audience, it appeared everyone was “getting what they came for.”

This is always an important thing for me when I put together events.  I always want to ensure when people pay for an event that they get what they paid.  My motto is to under promise and over deliver.

By the time I made it to the front of the room everyone was ready and even though it was after lunch no one fell asleep.  I made sure that all of the attendees understood the role of women in the new market place and the advantage that they have over men and I also spoke about how to capitalize on that.  In my upbeat and motivational classic style, I believe that I wowed the crowd.  At least that was the feedback that I received when I left the stage.

I was happy about that, but Heather Piedmont wasn’t.  : )  She felt like I was a tough act to follow, but she amazed the women in the audience with her info on creating a content strategy for their business and how they could use that to increase the awareness of their existence and expand their reach, thereby increasing their bottom lines.  Heather did a fabulous job.

Once the event was over, everyone took to social media to express their opinions on the event.  They were all overwhelmingly positive and supportive.  I am happy about that.  But this is what happens when events are created from a place passion and heart.

Now it’s onward and upward and getting ready for 2014!  Find out about upcoming Boot Camps at
