“This year the conference industry is experiencing solid growth, more than 10 percent, especially when people do not have travel expenses to attend,” said Ratliff. “That is why The Women Entrepreneurs Small Business Boot Camp has been successful, even through the down economic times. Networking and honing business skills are key components for small business to thrive in tough economies, and they get both of them at this conference.”
Keynote speakers include Jodi Low and Renee Dee, Co-Founders of Girlfriend University, a personal and professional development center for female entrepreneurs and executives and Maureen Mulvaney, Amazon Best Selling Author of The Women’s Millionaire Club.
The camp will feature nine information packed workshops on collaboration, increasing success and wealth, social media, making professional connections, becoming an expert through authoring and more.
The day will close with It’s a Wrap from business strategist Patricia Drain, who will walk attendees through the day’s valuable lessons and how to implement them.
The boot camp will donate raffle proceeds to Girls Rule, an organization started by a 9-year-old girl and dedicated to helping girls develop the needed skills to create extraordinary futures for themselves, one step at a time.
