Little Brands, Big Business 

For Small Business Owners Who Want to Show Up in a BIG Way Your business may be small, but that shouldn’t stop you from dreaming big! Join me and a panel of experts for an entire day dedicated to helping you be brave and bold in your business. 

We'll teach you how to:

  • Show up and get yourself found online
  • Use compelling copy and content to communicate with your dream clients
  • Network like a boss because it’s not what you know, it’s who knows you
  • Nurture those crucial client relationships  
  • Lock down the legal essentials so you can be confident you’re running your business in the most professional way  
  •  Avoid self-sabotage, so you’re not wasting all that hard work  
  • … plus, much, much more!  

This isn’t a bland, stuffy business convention – it’s a lively, interactive, professional event with plenty of opportunities to ask questions. The day will run from 9:30am until 4:30pm and includes lunch, refreshments and ample time to network and chat with fellow attendees.
