“The Woman Behind The Business” promotes unapologetically honest dialogues to advance women entrepreneurs (and aspiring entrepreneurs) to acquire strength, strategies, and success — the toolkit to sustainability! We believe that by sharing “lessons from the valley,” other women can learn, grow, and walk boldly into their destiny as community leaders.
