Mompreneurs Mean Business
According to Readers Digest.ca, the mompreneur movement is exploding in Canada. With the corporate world still largely unaccommodating to family demands, many moms are striking out on their own.
Moms start all kinds of businesses, everything from organic baby food to life coaching. For those in the 9-to-5 grind, the idea of running your own business and spending more time with your child sounds idyllic, but it can be tough going, especially in the first few years.
All across Canada multi-tasking moms are creating companies while raising kids. Just as it takes a village to raise a child, the same holds true for building your biz.
Join us as we share tips, tricks and advice from experienced entrepreneurs to ensure all your hard work pays off and help you take your business to the next level.
Location: the Kelowna Ramada Hotel & Conference Centre on September 26th, 2013
Doors open 6:30 pm, Event starts 7:00 pm
