Women entrepreneurs start businesses excited to share their technical experience, passion, education and knowledge with the marketplace, customers and community. Many do not begin by thinking of themselves as leaders but rather as business owners or working professionals. In order to succeed in entrepreneurship from the start or to grow a company or your professional resume, requires strong leadership skills.

At this special Women TIES Greater Southern Tier Luncheon Program, long time leader of women entrepreneurs Tracy Chamberlain Higginbotham, Founder of Women TIES, LLC, Five Star Events, LLC and the Women's Athletic Network, will give an hour leadership presentation during lunch to inspire women entrepreneurs, women professionals and community members who want to be stronger leaders. The summer is the perfect time to listen to a program on this topic so you can become a stronger leader for your own company.

This program was delivered in Lake Placid in early May to positive reviews so Tracy wanted to share this program with our Southern Tier, Binghamton and Northern Pennsylvania women. We hope you will enjoy us for some lemonade,leadership and sales leads on July 20th.

This event is sponsored by the Women's Business Center of New York State (www.nywbc.org), offering free business counseling to women entrepreneurs.

The event is also sponsored by Martha Sauerbrey of Stop the Clock Skin Care/Rodan and Fields.

I am enjoying my position as Chairwomen of the County Legislature and, I am working my own business as a Rodan and Fields Independent Consultant.
