Liz was a high school teacher for years when she started to get regular requests from family and friends to help their children with college applications. After positive feedback, she decided this was a great opportunity to start a business, and now helps families prepare college applications and personal essays.
Liz was looking for help learning the basics of building her business, but most importantly was interested in learning how to market herself, and finding a community of entrepreneurs who were in the same position she was.
Liz attended our service-based businesses series this year, and a networking event for women entrepreneurs. In the service industry series, she received training on building her person brand, managing money as a sole proprietor, and establishing work-life balance. During Women Mean Business, she had time to network with other women entrepreneurs, as well as learning more about marketing. Retained business, and increased sales but expanding services outside San Francisco into other Bay Area cities
