CEO School for Women™ is a business growth, peer-mentoring, and coaching program for women entrepreneurs and business owners who are committed to building your company, and eager to navigate it to the next level.

Yikes! Where Do I Start?

Sound like you?

  • My business has survived startup but I can’t seem to get traction to make it “over the hump.”
  • There is so much to do, I can’t seem to make any headway. Everything feels like a priority!
  • I feel lonely and uncertain if I’m on the right track.
  • I’m feeling “stuck.”
  • I learn best in a group, and from “doing.”
  • I could really use some encouragement, guidance, skills, accountability, and structure.

 You may qualify for our EMERGING Growth Class for CEO School for Women™

Developed by Women for Women

Structure, experience, practicality, and support are the underlying principles.

FUN is another key principle. We can all use a little more fun in our lives, and who better than our sisters to understand, and to laugh and play with!

Led by a knowledgeable business advisor and facilitator of Executive Roundtables, plus an exceptional faculty of experts, each class provides lessons to apply today and to serve over the long haul as your business grows. 

Accessible 24/7 to Fit Your Life

We’re becoming virtual and asynchronous in 2017 to accommodate your schedule! Our practical curriculum is served online so you can dip in when your schedule allows.

And our conference calls and virtual MasterMind Circles are held at the same time each month so you can anticipate them in your calendar. Because life happens, those are recorded in case you must miss one, and placed in your customized secured online portal.

Useful NOW

Rather than rival graduate business schools, our curriculum is PRACTICAL, based on actual entrepreneurial experiences.

CEO School™ is designed for busy women like you, who want to implement and benefit from their new learnings immediately.

…and Later

Unlike a lot of programs out there, we focus on teaching you skills that last a lifetime and grow as your business grows.

Meet Nancy Chorpenning

Founder and Executive Director

Hi! When I started my business 10 years ago, even the experiences of being a corporate executive and attending one of the top business schools in the US didn’t prepare me for the challenges I was about to encounter as a business owner.
And I couldn’t find any single place to learn what I needed to know.
A lot of it was “touchy-feely” and didn’t provide practical skills that I could use. Much of it was trying to sell me something that I really didn’t need or want. And none of it attracted the kind of serious business-minded women who — don’t get me wrong! — LOVE to have fun but who really want to buckle down and work, too. And find ways for work to BE fun!
So I built CEO School for Women™.
We’ve operated in person for the past three years. The time challenges of busy women owners convinced me to break our material into “bite-sized chunks,” and accessible when YOU have the time. More “touches” during the month will make for a more responsive experience that can have an immediate impact. Technology has solutions that we need to be using!
My initial idea came from an interview with Steve Ballmer (former CEO of Microsoft) who said “there is no CEO School” and that he had to create his own community of fellow CEOs to learn from. What we’re doing is decidedly different. But then, we’re women, and we ARE different than our male counterparts.
CEO School for Women™ is what I needed when I embarked on my entrepreneurial journey. I hope you might find something here that you’re looking for, too!

Cheers!

Praise for Nancy from Women Entrepreneurs

“I have been so fortunate to work with Nancy as she facilitated our CEO Roundtable. Nancy’s ability to understand business concepts and then put them into real world context makes her an invaluable resource. She has the ability to introduce new ways of looking at things and challenge your thinking while keeping you feeling empowered.”

“Her breadth of experience and network allows her to bring expertise to business owners when it is most needed and provides an endorsement that ensures confidence and enables you to move forward.”

“I most value Nancy’s ability to ask the tough questions and help you come to your own solutions with her wisdom and guidance. She is truly a consummate professional and valued business advisor.”

Lissa Versteegh

President & CEO, Georgia Sales Development

“Nancy has challenged me to look deeper into business issues with ideas to grow my company with strategic, as well as tactical solutions. Her leadership always kept our group on track when discussing solutions to business issues.”

“As a business owner, I used to discuss business issues with employees and/or my spouse. Nancy’s leadership has allowed me to discuss strategic matters with other business owners. I highly value Nancy Chorpenning’s business acumen.”

Lillian DeAngelo

President, Proforma Custom Business Services

“I met Nancy around the time my business turned 7 years old. I knew it was time for a change, but I was too close to it to be objective. Nancy objectively, expertly, professionally yet gently led me through the change process I needed to navigate.”

“She took the time to understand my goals and our brand essence and then took me through the steps I needed to take to set a plan for growth. She broke down a complex process into manageable steps that resulted in success. And, she connected me with professional resources I needed but didn’t have access to previously.”

“With Nancy’s support and guidance, our agency survived through the economic downturn and is now experiencing exponential growth!”
