    I recently started a small consulting business. Having the opportunity to meet some of these leading women would be inspiring personally and could lead to a working partnership professionally!

    • KE Rogers February 1, 2018 at 4:52 pm #

      As new business owner, it’d be great to get insight and mentorship, as a woman new to the small business arena.

    I’ve always grown up the oldest of my cousins and siblings and prided myself on finding my way up the ladder in my field. I would love the opportunity to immerse myself with such like-minded, career oriented, and successful women so that I may also become a mentor to future female all stars.

    I just stumbled across this now I think it was purposeful. I’m newly certified as a wellness life coach. My journey with ovarian cancer 7 years ago led me down this new path of empowering women to live there best life in wellness and achieving your hopes and dreams. It would be an honor to attend this incredible event.

    This would be an amazing opportunity for me-having sold my business back in CO & Moving back home to Portland, after being gone for 20yrs. Starting fresh in a new city-with tons of competition, has been hard. It would be good for me to find some networking & mentoring through this event. Thanks so much!!

  21. tracy February 2, 2018 at 11:17 am #

    I’ve recently started a small flooring business. As a woman in a very male field I soak up every bit of advice from women, this would be a fantastic assist in the future of a woman owned business.

  22. Kelsey February 6, 2018 at 12:22 pm #

    I could and would learn so much at this event!

  23. Sarah Cooley February 6, 2018 at 12:31 pm #

  36. Shannon O'Connor February 10, 2018 at 12:38 pm #

    I have recently decided to enter back into the work force after taking a couple of years off. This would be extremely helpful to get my name back out into the arena . As a woman that typically works in a male dominated field (transportation management), having female mentors would be very helpful.
