The word being "rerouted" is heard often in air travel and road trips. By definition the word rerouted means the act of choosing a different path for travel. Women entrepreneurs don't need to be traveling to a national conference or to a client appointment to hit detours in their personal or entrepreneurial journeys.

At this special Women TIES Mohawk Valley Luncheon called "Empowered Decisions: Rerouting Your Business & Life," hear from Teresa D. Huggins, Inspirational Speaker, Author of Pausing Long Enough to Notice and Solutions Expert. Teresa, who typically asserts influence and change outcomes through the sheer force and power of her ideas for clients, will share how she is being rerouted in her own business journey in the face of a health diagnosis and expanding her vision of what is possible. This will be a powerful program and message for all women who have in the past or might be facing any number of challenges where rerouting might be necessary.

The event is sponsored in part by Time for Me Day Spa and the New York Women's Business Center.

Summer is fast approaching and so is the time it takes to catch our prospects and customers before they head off to a more relaxed state of mind during July and August. Women entrepreneurs must be selling all the time no matter the season, their state of mind or the mindset of their customers. The only way to be successful in sales is to have a plan and use it consistently.

At the Women TIES Rochester Luncheon "Seven Simple Steps to Develop A Sales System that Works," Susan Beebe an Executive Business Coach with over 30 years of successful Sales and Marketing experience and popular Women TIES presenter, will share a New Business Development (NBD) system which you work on a consistent and persistent basis to provide you with a continuous flow of prospective new customers; relieving you of the stress and fear of not knowing where your next sale will come from. You will be empowered with the knowledge of the same Sales System she has successfully implemented for her own two businesses, as well as dozens of her clients. You too can have the peace of mind in knowing that you are doing what is necessary to grow and sustain a profitable business especially during the summer sales season.
