Leading Women Entrepreneurs and Business Owners is proud to announce its annual Celebrating The Unstoppable Top 25 Recognition Event at the Liberty House in Jersey City on Monday, November 14th, from 6pm to 9pm. Unlike any other, this event was created not just to showcase  women who have taken their businesses to incredible and awe-inspiring levels, but to celebrate their wins, their mistakes that led to wins, and their unstoppable drive to continue on, no matter what challenges were thrown their way.

These women all started with an idea. An idea that grew out of passion and drive. Sara Blakely, self-made billionaire and founder of Spanx, had that drive when she was a door-to-door fax salesperson. She was 29 when she took $5000 out of her savings account to create Spanx. Now she's a household name and an inspiration to millions of women everywhere.

Blakely said of her business journey, "It's important to be willing to make mistakes. The worst thing that can happen is you become memorable."
