    Avoid the Top 5 Mistakes
    Made by Women Entrepreneurs

    Women, as natural caregivers, are notorious for taking on too much responsibility and for cutting corners with their own businesses in a perceived effort to provide more for their loved ones. However, insisting on handling complicated legal and financial matters on her own, failing to put safeguards in place for herself and for her family in the event of unforeseen circumstances, and failing to delegate various responsibilities both at the office and at home can result in disastrous consequences. In Dera’s presentation, you will learn how avoid these common pitfalls and how to make sure you are protecting yourself legally, financially and even emotionally.
