Women Owned Business Wednesdays-- FREE {ChallegeHER WOSB Forum}

Women Owned Business Event- FREE {ChallengeHER Federal Contracts Program}
It's Women Owned Business Wednesday, I'm an advocate for entrepreneurship, especially when it comes to women. I've always been that person and have always been an entrepreneur. I strongly believe, that even when gainfully employed, the entrepreneur spirit is needed in all of us to succeed. You are always selling yourself and your abilities in order to get ahead in the world. 

This weeks Women Owned Business Wednesday (WOBW) focus, is an event that is for empowering the women that owns a small business and is interested in contracting with the government. I found out about this event through a Meetup Group that I just joined called Entrepreneur in High Heels. Yours truly will be in attendance for this great networking opportunity.  

Who's Hosting
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP), and American Express OPEN (OPEN) have partnered to host women business owners for this special contracting event. I'm also a proud new member of the WIPP. I'm trying to come up in the world...of public policy.
