Last spring I enrolled in a 14 week Women’s Economic Ventures Self-Employment Training class and wrote a business plan for “The Write Alley Coaching and Writing Strategies.” As a writing coach, I work with small businesses owned by women, artists, and wineries on writing and using social media tools; I am available to provide content as well.
The day I signed up, my husband broke his C2. With help from my family and friends, I graduated with honors, served as class speaker AND I nursed my husband to a full recovery. I was ready to get in the swing of business and blogging when I was offered two summer school classes which started the same week as the Wine Blogger’s Conference–the equivalent of working time and a half. How could I say no to a paycheck like that after being on unemployment while my husband was on disability for four months? As the term neared the close, my mother, one of my coaches, and someone I was going to be coaching on developing a blog and publishing a series of books, died suddenly and unexpectedly.
Because of the challenges I faced this past year, WEV nominated me to the Women’s Conference to speak and get a makeover.
And yesterday I was selected for this amazing opportunity. Learn more below.
