INSPIRE 2018 happened September 21st!
The GWEN Story...
After all, we all have one!
... they’re lasting longer and seeing greater success! Female entrepreneurs are passionate, ambitious, and we ARE a force to be reckoned with!
Growing Women Entrepreneurs, or GWEn for short, was created by independent financial and business advisor Jennifer Wallace to fill a need she saw in the Greater Niagara Region for professional development geared to women entrepreneurs, solo-preneurs, small business owners, and even those considering self-employment.
GWEn’s mandate is to Educate. Inspire. Connect. This is achieved through event-based professional, personal development and networking opportunities. Events will showcase experts in their fields offering you tips and tactics that you can implement into your business and your life in order to get you closer to your goals.
Since its inception in 2012, GWEn has focused on an annual conference held in the fall, however after receiving feedback from the growing GWEn community of supportive female entrepreneurs, more programming and opportunities to connect with others were introduced in 2016. We look forward to connecting with you, so that we can connect you with others to help and support you in your business!

It’s easy for an[…]

Do you ever feel, in your business or any other aspects of your life, that the universe is looking out for you and your best interests, even if you feel it’s something bad or disappointing that’s happened? Today, this happened to me. A client informed me that they were going elsewhere, although it was no fault[…]
“Just GOOGLE it!” We live in a world where information is accessible at the tip of our fingers. We can youtube how to fix that plumbing problem, sign up for that free or low-cost software-as-a-service (SAAS) that’ll do a “quick and dirty” version of what we need. Instant gratification and saving money… that’s what it’s[…]

Summer can bring with it sunshine, beach days, and unpredictability. All of which can throw you off your game. Your routine is altered. People aren’t as easy to get in touch with. Business development takes a back seat to patio drinks with friends. In business, activity brings more activity. In other words… sales. Momentum lost[…]
