Starting a business is easy. Making it successful is not. Most of us start our business from our passion. But we quickly discover there are things about running our business that SURPRISE us. We may feel anxious or insecure about our abilities to manage. How do you know what's most important, and whether it requires bringing in an expert?

Welcome, fellow Entrepreneurs!
When I started my business 12 years ago, even my experiences of having been a Fortune 500 corporate executive (Time Warner & WebMD) and having attended 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 a single place to learn what I needed to know.
A lot of the online offerings were “touchy-feely” and didn’t provide practical business skills that I could use. Much of them were trying to sell me something that I really didn’t need or want.
And none of it attracted my 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 since 2014. The skills members gained and relationships they formed have had material impacts on their businesses, resulting in hundreds of thousands of dollars growth and savings. And deep relationships have formed.
Now, we're moving online.
The time challenges of busy women owners convinced me to break our learning modules into “bite-sized chunks,” and make it 24/7 time-accessible for when YOU have the time.
Technology has some cool solutions that we will be using! Multiple “touches” during the month make for an interactive experience that has immediate impact as you implement new learnings
You'll be part of a confidential community of wise women entrepreneurs from whom you'll learn and share your wisdom. And you'll get the benefit of being guided by a business advisor and coach, without the expense.
CEO School for Women™ is what I needed when I embarked on my entrepreneurial journey. I'm confident you’ll find something here that you’re looking for, too.
You don't have to go it alone!

“Learning to create a successful business, not just another job disguised as your own business, might have been one of the most important lessons from Nancy and the CEO School program.
"Nancy helped me to focus on my business, even as I was starting out and feeling very overwhelmed. She taught me techniques and processes that allowed me to see the bigger picture.
"My business grew from just myself to a team of 6 people in less than year, and having the support of other women who were going through the same thing made ALL the difference. I could let my guard down, ask for help, and have a circle of women who truly understood the effort it takes to succeed. Thank you, Nancy, for coaching me on how to work ON my business and not only IN it."
