Founder of Women's Small Business Month Will Give Women 7 Ways to Profit in the New Economy on October 20

Empowerment Event Where Women Entrepreneurs Learn From Top Business Leaders

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - October 5, 2010) -  Linda Hollander, known as the "Wealthy Bag Lady" and founder of Women's Small Business Month, will hold the first-ever event at the Historic Pasadena Tournament of Roses House in Pasadena, California on October 20. At the Women's Small Business Month celebration, women will discover seven ways to profit in the new economy and success secrets from top women business leaders.

According to the Center for Women's Business Research, women are starting businesses at twice the rate of men. Women make or influence over 85% of all purchases in America. Currently there are over 10.6 million women-owned businesses employing 19.1 million people and generating $2.5 trillion in sales.

What makes the Celebration Women's Small Business Month celebration different is that women are active participants in shaping their future. Topics include five steps to gaining control of your financial future, why the old economy business strategies are dead, how to get big money referrals, how to avoid the most common business blunders and there will be connection opportunities in the networking sessions.

The Celebration of Women's Small Business Month also encourages enlightened entrepreneurship and the importance of giving back to society. The event is sponsored by Wells Fargo and the founder, Linda Hollander, has raised over $10,000 for charitable partners including Junior Achievement which teaches kids entrepreneurship.

Hollander, founder of the Women's Small Business Month, is also known as the Wealthy Bag Lady and is the author of the book, Bags to Riches: 7 Success Secrets for Women in Business. She says, "Women's Small Business Month is all about high-octane entrepreneurial power. Only 20% of all businesses succeed. We want to give women the edge to be part of that 20%."

Los Angeles is now the city with the most women entrepreneurs. Today's economy is actually sparking the rise in women-owned businesses. Women are starting businesses after being downsized or laid off.

Linda Hollander started multi-million dollar businesses which helped her get out of the poverty trap and abusive relationships. She created Wealthy Bag Lady and Women's Small Business Month to empower women through entrepreneurship so they can live their passionate lives and step into their greatness.
