Owning It Speaker Series at the West Side Bazaar

I’ve often thought it very interesting that many people open businesses without doing their due diligence. In fact, I suppose that back in the day, when I opened my first business, I was not really prepared for some of the issues that I would eventually face. Being a young business owner, I learned many things through trial and error. But there are other entrepreneurs out there that face numerous pitfalls aside from age. Take, for example, language barriers, economic barriers, and barriers in education. At some point in everyone’s life, the thought of opening a business crosses one’s mind. At the same time, it can be a risky venture, with no guarantees of success.

These are a few of the reasons that The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), along with the Westminster Economic Development Initiative (WEDI) and the West Side Bazaar, is hosting a free speaker speaker series that is open to the public. 

“NAWBO’s overarching goal with this Series is to share the wealth of information and experiences of our women entrepreneurs. We believe collaborating and partnering with Buffalo’s emerging entrepreneurial community makes everyone stronger,” said Lisa A. Coppola, Esq., NAWBO Buffalo Niagara’s president.

All classes are to be held at the West Side Bazaar, 25 Grant Street in Buffalo (5:30pm to 6:30pm). Click here to learn more.
