The mission of this Learn and Launch is two fold: 1) to provide business owners with practical tips and tools to help create and launch a sustainable business AND 2) to provide speakers an opportunity to share their business expertise and receive some constructive feedback to help perfect their presentation skills (for those requesting this support as they are not yet a seasoned speaker) through our Positively Powerful Presentations program.

Each week you will meet fellow small business owners, share what you are passionate about, enjoy a guest speaker and leave with some business tips you can put to immediate use. Who knows, maybe even have a few laughs...receive a great referral or find a strategic partner.   All on the West Side of town so you don't have to travel to the East Valley or Scottsdale!

Come with a StarshineAZ member and pay only $10!  This is a public event and both women and men are welcome as well as are aspiring entrepreneurs.  Bring your lunch, pick up a bite downstairs in the Something Special Aviation Cafe, or enjoy eating at the restaurant before or after the meeting.
