If you’re an entrepreneur or thinking of being one, this is the best way to get loads of information and also meet other like-minded folks to brainstorm, network and get potential business! I’ve been since day one, congrats Michelle Villalobos for putting this on!

From attending these summits, I’ve now had 2 especially good experiences: 1) an awesome mentor who gave me some fantastic advice and really made me think about my business from another perspective 2) attendees who heard my :30 sec pitch on stage helped me spread the word about Wok Star!No matter what kind of business you’re in, these summits are so helpful for brainstorming your ideas, networking to get new business or just socializing and getting out for a bit instead of working on our own at home. Hope to see you there!

Always informational speakers, no fluff.
