Join Coast Women in Business on Thursday, June 11, 2020 via Zoom video conferencing and learn how to look professional while running a home-based business. Our panel consists of veterans of home-based business operations and have tips to share.

Whether you’ve been doing it for years or have recently adjusted your business to be home-based, operating a business out of your home requires planning and discipline. How do you train family members to respect your business hours so you can get work done?

While we’re not holding in-person client meetings right now, how can you ensure your Zoom, WebEx, or Skype meetings are professional-looking? Does your business impact your neighbors?

These and other concerns will be tackled by our panel composed of the Steering Committee of the Coast Women in Business: Catherine Marshall, Marinela Miclea, and Cathryn Hrudicka. All three are veterans of home-based business operations and have tales to share.

Come to the meeting with your best ideas or lessons learned about operating a home-based business.

Also… feel free to enjoy a ☕ beverage 🍵 of your choice while attending our virtual meeting.
