Why The Women in

Business Workshop?

Three years ago I remember becoming exhausted of seeing the "woo woo" glitter and girly type of business events. I don't resonate with that style.

Glitter doesn't pay the bills.

Hard work does.

I knew that there had to be other babes out there who felt the same. Which created the idea to launch an event to remember and a culture that would never be forgotten.

One that you could start implementing the knowledge you gain and carry on the friendships you'll make with other like-minded badass amazing women.

This is a drama free, no bullshit, no fluff zone. With a limited number of tickets it's an amazing and intimate event and it will be the most productive, intense, and best girls weekend ever! I hope to see you there!!

Our Work & Initiatives

Get Ready to Take Your Business to

the Next Level

The Women in Business Workshop is a 3 day business growth workshop where women from every walk of life can come together to be inspired, supported and welcomed in a community of bosses. This is not a fluffy, feel-good, cosmic back rub event. This is real women, real businesses & real success. We are not about the "Woo Woo" we are here to WIN! #WinOverWooWoo

The Women in Business Workshop is where we tackle business and life elements. Covering branding, social media, finances, work-life balance, legal information to protect your brand and business, strategy and tactics to help your business thrive.

Expect to be energized, motivated, and leave with a new outlook and discipline to carry out your greatest ambitions. You will leave the workshop with life long skills, a more knowledgeable approach to life & business as well as the support of 50 of your new best friends.

Join us to take the first step to becoming the woman you know you were always meant to be.

The next event will be June 6-8th 2021
