On Friday, October 6th, The Business of WE (Women Entrepreneurs) celebrated its 2nd annual Summit! It was a full day of connecting and sharing of knowledge with 145+ passionate women (and even a few gentlemen). We are humbled and grateful for all the amazing feedback we have received from those that attended and sincerely hope we left everyone feeling inspired, empowered and ready to thrive in all of their endeavors!
