Whatever the reason, failure to grow a business contributes to the wide-spread stereotype of women business owners. Learn from Deborah’s two company ownership experiences and case studies from other women business owners. Watch live interviews as Deborah challenges YOU because … it’s time to find out what your role is in today’s wacky business world. It’s time to take charge in order to gain the respect and success you deserve as a woman. It’s time to be called “BOSS”!
