US has increased 114% (Inc. magazine, August 13, 2018). Are
you eager to turn your dream into a reality and start your own
business? Taking this leap can feel daunting, and we recommend
making sure you set things up properly based on your unique situation.

Whether you are considering this career change or have started down the road already, you are invited to join Jessica Glass, business attorney at SDG Law and Heather Green Kirk, CPA/Director, Citrin Cooperman. This non-intimidating discussion is an opportunity to ask questions, hear success stories, learn about common mistakes (and how to avoid them), access best practices and network with women in similar situations. Bring your business cards and be entered to win a complimentary 30-minute consultation (legal, tax, marketing) with one of our speakers.
