Vision and Strategy: Creating a Vision to Grow your Business 

2:00 P.M. ET 

Having a vision means having a clear sense of purpose. It is more than setting and reaching short-term goals and tackling problems as they come along–a vision helps foster a larger picture of success. Join this session to learn how to think big and grow your business. 

We recommend attending this session if you plan on applying to the Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership (WEL) Program in 2022.
