Women lead busy lives. We juggle so many hats that finding the time to get out and meet other female entrepreneurs may be challenging at times.

Also, once you are at the event, you feel like Cinderella and sense the pressure of time, for you know you cannot stay long because you must get back home to finish off the second shift.
What about taking a course? Another opportunity to meet fellow female entrepreneurs. If you are starting out there is the issue of cost. If you have children, there is the issue of time. So, what is the happy half way house where you can connect with likeminded women and fill yourself up with the knowledge you need to start and develop a business?
