NAWBO NYC wants to congratulate the graduates of our Mentoring Program. We wish them continued success on their entrepreneurship journey. If anyone is interested in joining the program in 2018-2019, please contact Rita Beygelman at email@example.com.
“I am very, very grateful to have worked with the wonderful Nina Kaufman – thank you for such a great match. I had a superb mentoring experience with Nina! She’s a gem!” ~ Marian Rich, Career Play
“It was a great pleasure to meet you and be part of the program with you. I learned so many new things listening and following along. It was so nice to hear about your journeys and your takeaways at the graduation dinner.” ~ Rita Beygelman, b.Tsaritsa
“If you don’t know where you’re going, how will you know when you get there?”
When you started your business, you likely had a picture in your mind of your Dream Business, a business you LOVE. What was that dream? How long has it been since you’ve looked at it?
And what does “business success” mean to you? Unlike many male counterparts, most women search for meaning in their business, and how it impacts others rather than strictly financial gain (though those profits sure are nice!). Yours is the definition that counts.
Most of us have watched our businesses evolve over time. But we rarely go back and think through what our evolved vision is. Not having a clear and current business vision wreaks havoc with our attempts at planning…and may be hampering your efforts.
Whether you are a longtime owner or a relative newbie, it’s never too late — or too soon — to work on elucidating and refining your business success destination.
How far out can you envision your business? That’s YOUR Success Horizon, and only you can define it. It may be 3 years, or 5, or 10, or more years.
Join me for a hands-on workshop to discover or rediscover your Dream Business Vision. (Stay tuned for advance homework!)

The next installment in our monthly Lunch & Learn series where we feature a current NAWBO member as the guest speaker, educating other women business owners in her area of expertise.
Even small businesses need to brand themselves, in order to cut through the noise generated by their competitors and reach their prospects. Good branding makes small businesses and new businesses look larger and more established, helping them level the playing field.
Attend the NAWBO NYC January Lunch & Learn: Branding for Small Businesses on January 22 between 12:00-1:30, and you will leave with the answers to these questions:
What does “branding” mean for very small businesses?
What can you do on your own to develop a brand?
How do you prioritize spending on branding with a small budget?
Come learn the difference between how the big agencies do it and what you can do with a much smaller budget.
