Women entrepreneurs work hard to earn money for their businesses. It is critical for them to understand fully their financial rights, specifically when and how assets may be at risk.

“Knowledge is essential to maintaining the success and profitability of your business,” said Karolina Dehnhard, family law attorney from the law firm Budd Larner in Short Hills.  Dehnhard will share her personal life experiences and explain why she is so passionate about helping women protect their hard earned financial assets at the October 30 meeting of B.I.G. (Believe, Inspire, Grow) from 10-11:30 am in Summit at Twin Maples, 214 Springfield Avenue.

B.I.G. is an organization for businesswomen who are at all levels of their careers, from those just coming up with a business idea, to seasoned shop owners and serial entrepreneurs.

“Women from Summit, New Providence, and neighboring towns are welcome to check out our meeting.  Our members include stay-at-home moms trying to figure out what they want to do with newly found free time, to those with successful businesses like health coaches, realtors, photographers, tutors, direct sales consultants, and local store owners,” said Melanie Wilson, Summit/New Providence BIG pod leader.  “The common bond is that all are smart, creative women looking to support each other and network in the process.  This presentation will be another wonderful example of the fantastic programming we present to help women advance their businesses, and meet other dynamic and inspiring women.”

“A lot of people I have invited to join B.I.G. are at that place in their lives where they need to figure out what comes next,” she continued.   “Women have kids in school all day, have run the gamut of volunteer positions and are trying to remember what they loved best.  They are thinking of possibly launching a career that combines their passion with what they are really good at.  Or, perhaps, their specific child-rearing experiences (sports, special needs, college searches, bakes sales etc.) have given them a business idea, but they don’t know how to get it off the ground.  B.I.G. helps find the answers, even for the seasoned, professional businesswoman looking for new ways to scale her business.”

Each month B.I.G. holds an in-person meeting in Summit, and explore such topics as taking the plunge to start a business, embracing changes in our lives, brainstorming business ideas and marketing connections, public relations, how to use social media to best advance your marketing, branding yourself and your business, speed networking, etc. 

The first meeting is free.  Annual membership dues are $239, which includes “pod-hopping” to unlimited events each month at many nearby town meetings.  Please rsvp to Wilson at msw1230@comcast.net.  Check out www.believeinspiregrow.com for more info on membership and on the organization.

And Over Here is the Dining Hall 2
