A.W.E. Spotlight – Brave Entrepreneur

In an effort to always bring you the latest and greatest information, I am happy to present another installment of our Advisory of Women Entrepreneurs Spotlight on Success interview series.

We designed this series to, not only showcase our community of amazing women entrepreneurs, but to also share their best tips, strategies and insights for wanna-be and established women entrepreneurs.  Our mission for this community is to bring an incredible group of women together to inspire, motivate, and support women in business by networking, collaborating, and, in the case of this spotlight series, showing you why they shine so brightly!

This week I am happy to share my wonderful interview with  Nora Whalen, President and Founder of The Institute for Beautiful Business.

In our interview, Nora graciously shares…

  • The top strategies she uses to stay laser-focused
  • The number one decision she made for herself and her business that helped her get very clear on her priorities
  • How you can take a free quiz to see how you are faring in your business
  • Her new book, the upcoming launch of her group coaching program called The Brave Entrepreneur, and so much more!

Please pardon the technical difficulties that sometime arise with Skype. We pushed through to capture the amazing tips Nora had to share. So even if the video isn’t the best, the content is outstanding! Enjoy!

Thank you for watching. If you are interested in joining A.W.E. and being featured on a future Spotlight Interview CLICK HERE for more information.
