GROW banner3

Next week is the Grow Conference at Westchester Community College.  Last year I attended the conference and was blown away by how much I learned from the speakers and workshops.  I was so impressed with the event that I agreed to speak at this year’s conference. 

If you are a business owner or entrepreneur looking to improve your business you should seriously consider attending this event.

I have included information on their programs below.  Click here to see a full list of the sessions available at the Grow Conference.
