4. Pay it forward to others, creating a measurable and meaningful impact while helping women and girls.
5. Learn about success factors for women and their careers, including research and solutions on balance, communication, prioritization, negotiation, and self-confidence, as taught in the award-winning Women's Entrepreneurial Leadership class at the George Washington University School of Business, Center for Entrepreneurial Excellence and featured in the Washington Post Magazine article 'CEO of ME Inc.'

As seen and heard:
"I've paid good money for counseling and business advice that has never come close to what you imparted to our group last week. I hate to sound so evangelist about your work but I had several break through moments listening to you and the other women who participated in the class."
