Stand Out and Get Noticed: NAWBO NYC Small Business Bootcamp

In today’s special episode of Smashing The Plateau, we’re sharing some of the highlights of NAWBO NYC’s Small Business Bootcamp on how to make your business stand out and get noticed. We talk to an incredible group of women, and they reveal some of the event’s biggest takeaways. 

The National Association of Women Business Owners is the voice of more than 10 million women-owned businesses in the United States. Since 1975, NAWBO has helped women grow their businesses by sharing resources and providing a collective viewpoint to help shape economic and public policy. It is the only dues-based national organization representing the interests of all women entrepreneurs across all industries.
