Fri July 3rd 2pm – 3pm HOST Darcelle Runciman, Guests Azure Campbell and Amanda Willett
More than 60 percent of Canada’s 800,000 women entrepreneurs are “lifestylers” – business owners who choose self employment to create balance in work and family commitments. Often, though, self-employment is lonely and isolating, and brings a host of unforeseen challenges that prevent the dream from being fulfilled. Tina Dezsi and Lia Bandola, along with 20 other businesswomen, inspire and encourage women everywhere to follow the dream in their just released book “The Power of Women United” (The Ultimate Publishing House: 2009). A collection of 22 personal stories, the contributing authors understand how personal obstacles interfere with success, and share strategies, advice, support and encouragement for women everywhere to find strength in numbers and reciprocate support.
