Wednesday, November 13 – How to Get Clients and Keep Them

Last month’s scheduled speaker, Constance Rose, Founder of Advocacy for Humankind (, has graciously agreed to be our November speaker since the October meeting was cancelled due to the power outage in our meeting location and the surrounding neighborhood.

She will explore how in an unpredictable job market, maybe it makes sense to take control and build your own business. This talk will be about getting clients and retaining them, and the challenges you will face as a solo entrepreneur or small business owner. Subject matter covered will be:

  • Your brand
  • Getting clients
  • Retaining clients
  • The hats you will wear
  • Incorporate or not

Don’t forget to buy tickets.
