What does Success Look Like to You?
Listen up all your Shark-ettes out there….
This is preparation #1 For REAL LIFE Shark Tank!
The center for Women & Enterprise is a fantastic organization that helps women (and men too) get comfortable with starting a business. They can help teach you all you need to know about business planning, marketing, organizing, selling, raising capital and much more. According to their website you simply need just the idea and the ambition. AT CWE they say: Connect, Learn, Succeed!
My first course with them was two years ago and it was called Visioning. It was so helpful to see your vision, your own picture of success drawn out so clearly on an enormous sheet of paper up on a big board. Right before your eyes you could see the dream blossoming. That is just the first step. Once you have a clear goal they are well equipped to help you get there. They have courses in everything from Business Structure, to Accelerating your Business. They can help with Legal Structure, Name Choice, Putting a Brochure together, and even have a class that asks Is Entrepreneurship Right for You?
Here I am above with Edwidge LaFleur, the Program Manager – CWE – Boston. Along with Madeleine Lutts, she can help answer any questions you may have. They are extremely welcoming and supportive. I already feel like a winner!
If you have a business dream of your own, no matter how BIG or small, and don’t know exactly where, or even how to begin, a great first step would be contacting CWE. They have offices in Boston, Central and Eastern Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and online.
With all the information available on the internet, and places like Center for Women & Enterprise, there really is no excuse for not bringing your business idea to life, or, making your current business better.
