Women Entrepreneurship 101 Program went above and beyond providing the basics and most practical information to start a business. It gave me insights on all the processes I need to consider when trying to make it as an independent woman entrepreneur. As a recent immigrant from Mexico the tools that I have been given with this course give me the confidence to take the next important steps in my business.” – Yessica, program participant

“The Women Entrepreneurship 101 program was very worthwhile. It gave me a chance to get my business on track thanks to relevant, wide-ranging and high-quality training activities. For instance, prior to the program, I unwittingly sold my products at a loss because I didn’t take into account all the factors, including income taxes, that can influence the selling price. Fortunately, the Women Entrepreneurship 101 program made me aware of that. In addition, I really liked Isabelle, who was there for us throughout the process, together with the various program participants. The group atmosphere was very nice as well. Thanks very much to Isabelle and Women in Business NB for the Women Entrepreneurship 101 program. It’s a blessing!” – Jessica, program participant

“The Women Entrepreneurship 101 course boosted my self-confidence and helped me to overcome my fears. I gained insight into the financial aspects of running a business. I also felt comfortable asking questions. I can definitely say that this course was the biggest source of help I’ve received since I founded my company! Thanks, Isabelle ❤️.” — Véronique, program participant
