"Small Business From Scratch" Workshop with Mary Heffernan
Friday-Sunday Nov 2-4, 2019
Bring your business ideas, your laptop and be ready to jump start your business! Mary will lead a weekend with a small, intimate group of 8-10 women to share everything she's learned about small business from the ground up.
