Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 11, 2007
What if women could push the fast forward button on their businesses? At the Women's Small Business Expo, held on November 6 in Los Angeles, California, women will come together, learn success secrets from the nation's top business leaders, power network, and participate in accelerated learning so they can crank up their businesses and grow.
What makes the Women's Small Business Expo different from other conferences is that women are not just observers. They are active participants in shaping their future. Women will write their entrepreneurial success plans, create their destiny, form success teams, and learn how to increase their profits.
Lisa Hammond, founder of Femail Creations and Barefoot Parties catalogs will keynote the conference. She'll talk about the 5 things every woman entrepreneur should know.
Topics include special financing for women-owned businesses, power selling, "potato chip marketing", branding, success planning, internet wealth, and how to avoid the most common business blunders.
The Expo also encourages enlightened entrepreneurship and the importance of giving back to society. Corporate sponsors who support women business owners include Citibank, Fed Ex, American Airlines and Pink Magazine. The Women's Small Business Expo raised over $10,000 for their charitable partner, the Women's Peace Campaign, which helps victims of domestic abuse.
Linda Hollander, the founder of the Expo, is also known as the Wealthy Bag Lady and author of the book, Bags to Riches: 7 Success Secrets for Women in Business. She says, "The Women's Small Business Expo is all about high-octane entrepreneurial power. Only 20% of all businesses succeed.
We want to give women the edge to be part of that 20%."
According to the Center for Women's Business Research, Women are starting businesses at twice the rate of men. Women make or influence over 80% of all purchases in America. Currently there are over 10.6 million women-owned businesses employing 19.1 million people and generating $2.5 trillion in sales.
Los Angeles is now the city with the most women entrepreneurs. Today's economy is actually sparking the rise in women-owned businesses. Women are starting businesses after being downsized or laid off. The Women's Small Business Expo is part of Women's Small Business Month.
