Individuals who start their own businesses know well they have to serve in many roles to make it happen. Recognizing this as an obstacle for business builders, Women’s Entrepreneurial Opportunity Center (WEOC) and Own Your Success (OYS) are teaming to host a workshop for women entrepreneurs titled Managing Priorities—Juggling the Many Hats Women Entrepreneurs Wear. The event will be held at The NIIC on October 18, 2018, 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
“Come learn from experts in our community about how to manage your priorities as a business owner. Our panel includes Emily Fitzgerald, Owner, Organized Living Solutions; Lindsay Bloom, Community Health Specialist, Physician Health Plan (PHP); Stephanie Martin, Owner, A Chance Re-Employment and Training; Lindsay Stump, Owner, Organized to Save,” said Leslee Hill, Director, WEOC. The format will include a panel discussion with Hill and Hines moderating and provide an opportunity for attendees to ask questions.
“I’m so excited we are bringing this event to busy entrepreneurs! It’s an important topic, and one that comes up frequently in our organization. Attendees will come away with some valuable and applicable tips,” said Andie Hines, Owner, OYS.

About The NIIC—The NIIC is a non-profit, vibrant entrepreneurial community. We help business builders and entrepreneurs launch and grow successful business ventures. We are located in a designated U.S. Small Business Administration HUB Zone, and in April 2018, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb designated The Northeast Indiana Innovation Park Campus as an Opportunity Zone through the U.S. Treasury. Formed in 1999 by a consortium of community and government leaders and organizations, The NIIC was recognized by Entrepreneur magazine in 2013 as one of the top four under-the-radar incubators in the country. This basically means Entrepreneur magazine, with the help of International Business Incubation Association, picked four U.S. incubators to highlight, and we were one of them. In their words, we “stand out in a state not always perceived as small business friendly.” The NIIC is the country’s only ISO9001: 2008 registered business incubation and acceleration program. https://theniic.org/.
