An empowering workshop event for ambitious women who are working to maximize their potential as owners and entrepreneurs in 2020!

About this Event

We're calling on all the dynamic women in Texas to start the year by joining us for an empowering brunch and learn workshop event designed, especially for ambitious women, entitled 'She is In-Charge: Employee to Entrepreneur 2.0', and you are one of them!

The year of abundance is finally here. Welcome to 2020, and to top that, a new decade! The Roaring 20s is calling us to do more, be bigger, go higher, and move differently, especially for those of us who are ready to take our small businesses and start-ups to the next level and reap the benefits of our hard work.

The 'She is In-Charge' workshop events exist to provoke, empower, and educate ambitious women to take charge of their careers and businesses strategically.

My team and I would love for you and your friends to join us on Saturday, August 1st! There are three ticket options/ packages to choose from for our attendees. The flyer regarding our event is attached, and you may click on the Eventbrite link below to review the details regarding the workshops, speakers, and venue.


During this event, you'll get to:

* Interact in four (4) different and powerful workshops led by four phenomenal female business owners and entrepreneurs who are experts in their industries. As workshop participants, you'll walk away with the tips, tools, resources, and knowledge necessary to successfully:

* Legalize and protect your business and all of its assets, which is critical knowledge, especially for those who are self-funded business owners who are currently establishing or have already built your businesses from the ground up brick by brick.

* Identify, develop, and nurture the right types of business partnerships to either get your business off the ground and going faster, generate financial growth and operate more efficiently, or innovate and expand into hard-to-penetrate global markets.

* Create a pricing model that is best suited for your offerings to gain a consistent and substantial money flow from the sales of your products and services.

* Strategically and consistently grow and manage your digital/online presence by marketing your brand, services, and products to reach the right customers/clients, at the correct times, and in the right places.

But wait. There’s more! You will also

* Get to connect and network with new friends, potential business partners, and an entire group of aspiring and full-time powerhouse CEOs.

* Indulge in pretty, tasty snacks and cocktails.

* Enjoy a delicious and filling brunch.

* Have the opportunity to be featured in a 60-second commercial and have it permanently posted to select social platforms by In-Charge Career Consulting, LLC, which will expose your business to potential investors, more significant markets, and clients who need your services and products.

* Shop with various business vendors.

* Receive a swag bag full of amazing gifts.

* Capture great Instagram-ready moments in a modern, chic setting throughout the day.

* Leave confident, inspired, motivated, and well- equipped to take charge of your business in 2020 and for years to come!

For any questions or concerns, you may reach out to us at and at the office, 469-514-3609 or 972-316-9718.
