Navigating business ownership is a challenge in and of itself. Add to that the pressure of looking around and realizing that no one in your industry really looks like you and you can understand how those pressures only increase.
Women in male-dominated industries have their own unique challenges, obstacles, and successes to work through and we’re excited to offer this platform as an opportunity to hear real stories from women in our community who are navigating their respective areas – and kicking butt!
Join us for our first Fall installment of our Women In Biz Live Panel series – Women In Male-Dominated Industries! This relaxed evening will include a happy hour with light snacks, networking, and a live panel with our special guests! They’ll be prepared to speak on their stories and answer all your burning questions. Live panel begins at 5:30 – happy hour begins at 5:00.
Meet our amazing speakers!

Co-owner of NutrishopCoMo

Since we have been here in Missouri I was able to start my own business, started competing in body building competitions, and spread the word on self love and a healthy lifestyle. With owning the Nutrishop, it has opened so many doors to help out around the community in just educating them to reach their goals.”
