Catch me at the One Woman National Business Conference® along with 80 other speakers!


Looking for ways to build your business? I highly recommend you attend One Woman National Business Conference® in Houston.

More than 80 subject experts and 1,200 women from all walks of life will be gathered on Friday and Saturday, August 6-7, 2010, at the One Woman National Business Conference® (One Woman®). Hosted by the Texas Business Alliance, One Woman® will again be held at the Omni Houston Hotel, Four Riverway, Houston, Texas 77056. This year's theme is "Still Standing," celebrating the resilience of entrepreneurs who withstood 2009's challenging economic climate. Actress and director Kim Fields will deliver the keynote address - "Still Standing!" - during the culminating event, the Soaring Heights Awards Brunch.

I did a one-on-one with Kim Fields that I will be posting on my blog soon!

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee is the 2010 One Woman® Honorary Chairwoman. "I'm pleased to support Texas Business Alliance and the One Woman National Business Conference®. The purpose of One Woman® is two-fold. The conference will equip entrepreneurs with real, actionable, practical knowledge to help them survive and thrive in today's economy. Secondly, One Woman® creates an opportunity for contractors and suppliers to meet and discover opportunities to work together. The conference is of high quality and I look forward to welcoming the attendees and supporters in August."

The goal of One Woman® is to transform women from the inside out. The wisdom, life sessions and practical tools obtained will cultivate an inner confidence to produce even larger external results in business, relationships and in the home.

One Woman® includes 24 workshops for novice and seasoned business owners, main stage conversations, and six free public forums. Workshop topics will include how to do business with corporate and government entities, how to identify your business value proposition, marketing and personal image, "green opportunities," exporting, business infrastructure and more.

For the second year in a row I have the opportunity to be apart of a panel. This time I am moderating! Information on my workshop is below. Click the image below also for more information about this great conference.
