The Souhegan Valley Women's Leadership Conference 

Women own 30% of all privately owned businesses in the U.S. and are one of the fastest growing sectors of our economy. But there are still challenges. The purpose of this event is to provide an informative and useful day of information exchange and networking for women entrepreneurs. There will be 3 sessions focusing on managing your money, marketing your business, and a panel discussion from successful women in several different fields to answer your questions. Followed by lunch and keynote 

speaker Marcelle Langan DiFalco, author of the
