I am an Entrepreneur – guest speaker Wendy Mayhew

Wendy will share her experiences, both good and bad, on why she continues to be an entrepreneur and will tell you about her journey from her 1st business to her now 8th business and what she is doing to help other entrepreneurs.
Date: Tuesday, February 9th 2010
Time: 5:30-7:00 (feel free to come in after classes ending at 5:30 too!)
Wendy Mayhew – Bio
Wendy Mayhew has over twenty years of experience in client service, marketing, product promotion and project management within the private and public sectors. An entrepreneur for the past twenty-five years, Wendy founded Business Launch Solutions because she truly enjoys the challenges involved in starting and growing new businesses.
