Women Entrepreneurs Learn From Top Business Experts at Interactive Tenth Annual Women's Small Business Expo

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 12, 2012) - Suzanne Evans, one of the most successful entrepreneurs in America, will be the keynote speaker at the tenth annual Women's Small Business Expo on April 25 at the Ayres Hotel in Los Angeles, California. Evans, owner and founder of Suzanne Evans Coaching, LLC, went from secretary to seven-figure earner in three years. She teaches over 30,000 women enrolled in her wealth and business building programs and has coached her private clients to total revenues exceeding eight million dollars. She will discuss how to go from conversations to cash and create huge inflows of profit, even in today's economy.

"The Wealthy Bag Lady" and author of the book, "Bags to Riches: 7 Success Secrets for Women in Business," Linda Hollander, is the founder of the event and has mentored thousands of women on creating successful businesses. She started this event to create an interactive forum where women could meet and learn from the world's leading business experts, talk one-on-one with mentors, network with other entrepreneurs and form success teams. According to the Center for Women's Business Research, women have the majority of wealth in America and are starting businesses at twice the rate of men. Currently, over 10.6 million women-owned businesses employ 19.1 million people and are generating $2.8 trillion in sales. "The Women's Small Business Expo 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%," says Hollander.

Additional speakers include Lethia Owens and Amy Applebaum. Topics will include:

  • how to get more clients now;

  • how to use social media to increase your bottom line;

  • top three secrets of sales success;

  • creating a profitable brand;

  • marketing with no or low budget;

  • growing your business, even if you're broke;

  • how to avoid the most common business blunders;

  • and power networking.

Hollander offers these business tips:

"It's really not the lack of money that holds people back, but the lack of capital-raising skills and knowledge.

"Not trusting your intuition can lead to missed opportunities. Women business owners have highly developed intuition, but sometimes forget to listen to their inner voice.

"Put systems in place that can function without your presence. When women start or buy businesses, they tend to choose labor-intensive companies. Do not trade hours for dollars; you should make money whether you show up or not."

Part of the proceeds of the Women's Small Business Expo will be donated to Junior Achievement USA, an organization teaching young people entrepreneurship. Corporate sponsors include Wells Fargo, Dun and Bradstreet Credibility Corp., Fed Ex, and American Airlines.
