Last summer I found out about this program offered through the Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center. This program was being offered to woman entrepreneurs who wanted to accelerate their business and be part of a network of support. It helps entrepreneurs define a critical business milestone in 12 weeks. I decided to take a chance and apply. I was pleasantly surprised to be accepted into this program. I was also excited to develop a milestone that would help with moving my business forward. Although making this decision was exciting, I soon became aware that I had to become dedicated to doing so. This means that I would meet for the required time until the program is over. There is a two day onboarding process. Each day is three hours. And then the one hour biweekly check ins. THIS on top of managing my businesses as well as balancing a personal life. 😳😬
I am happy that I made a decision to be part of this program! I learned a lot about myself. I was also able to connect with other fellow woman entrepreneurs! I was part of cohort four where we graduated in October 2021. As an alumni, I am able to join the network of previous cohorts. We also get to have meetings to further support each other. As a way of giving back, I decided I would be a Milestone Circles Cornerstone Mentor. This means I would dedicate my time to also provide support to other women entrepreneurs of the program. We just finished the two day onboarding process for cohort 14. I am really excited to see how this next group of cohort develops and work on their milestones.
