These morning programs allow business owners to network and receive training, usually focused on interpersonal or success skills. Past topics have included “Finding Your Superpower,” “Perfect Your Pitch,” and “Move Towards Financial Mastery.” 

Small Group Counseling

These sessions are organized into small groups, so that participants can work more closely with instructors in a discussion style format. Sessions labeled ADVANCED will be oriented towards business owners who have been in business at least two years and ready to tackle topics of a more advanced nature. All other sessions are open to new and existing business owners.

Peer Mentoring Program

Join our guided group discussion groups, designed to help you to stay on track and achieve your goals. Entrepreneurs in similar stages are grouped together to discuss designated topics, develop action goals and provide accountability to each other as these goals are pursued. Each program consists of 6 segments over a 3 month period and costs $75. This class is recommended for entrepreneurs who have already launched their businesses.

Networking Events

From the small group events, like Strong Women, Strong Coffee or An Evening with Alice Walker, to our Annual Gala, clients, friends and supporters can take advantage of our upcoming events to expand their network and contact list.
