Women Push the Fast Forward Button
on their Businesses at the
Women’s Small Business Expo

What if women could push the fast forward button on their businesses? 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. In one weekend, they will write their Entrepreneurial Success Plans, create their destiny, crank up their businesses and grow.

The Women’s Small Business Expo will take place at the Marriott Desert Springs in Palm Springs, California on October 8-10, 2004. At the Expo, women of different generations and backgrounds will come together, learn success secrets from the nation's top business leaders, and participate in power networking and accelerated learning. The innovative discussion groups and experts' roundtables, designed by and for women, focus on crucial issues and challenges that effect women’s entrepreneurial lives.

The seminar topics include growth strategies for tough times, access to capital, internet wealth, sales, marketing, media, branding and avoiding the most common business blunders.

Linda Hollander, the founder of the Expo and author of the book, Bags to Riches by the Wealthy Bag Lady: 7 Success Secrets for Women in Business, says, “The Women’s Small Business Expo is all about high-octane entrepreneurial power. Only 20% of all businesses succeed. We want women to give women the edge to be part of that 20%.”

Women who haven’t started their businesses yet will benefit by learning good habits, rather than un-learning bad ones. Female entrepreneurs will discover how to eliminate the barriers to success. Both service and product businesses will get strategies they can implement immediately so they can hit the ground running and take their business to the next level.

According to the Center for Women’s Business Research, Women are starting businesses at twice the rate of men, claiming their true economic freedom and rebuilding America. Women make or influence over 80% of all purchases in America. Currently there are over 10.1 million women-owned businesses employing 18 million people and generating $2.3 trillion in sales.

Today’s economy is actually sparking the rise in women-owned businesses. Women are starting businesses after being downsized or laid off. The biggest reason for the rise in women-owned business growth is the desire for freedom and independence. The Expo is part of Women’s Small Business Month.
