Four authors will share some of the soul-searching and thought process involved in their decision to write a book, at the Alliance of Women Owned Businesses (AWOB) March 13 meeting.
The new format for AWOB Power Series will have a panel of local authors Jeannine McCurrie, Joy Peterson, Dennis Bauer and Gloria Gilbère describe how they became published authors, some of the pitfalls they’ve experienced, and how being an author can help grow a business.
In addition to hearing about the road to authorship, the panel will also share various methods of publishing and the benefits/disadvantages of each in the current business climate. The discussion intends to answer the question: Could writing a book be good strategy for your business?
Moderator Shirley Hansen, who has written nine books, will pose questions to the panel and then will open it up to questions from the audience. In describing the program, Hansen noted, “We have gathered some incredible authors who write from very different perspectives. The audience is in for a real treat.”
AWOB’s Power Series meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month at the Inn at Gig Harbor, 3211 56th St. NW in Gig Harbor. These meetings feature guest speakers, roundtables or panels on topics of particular interest to female entrepreneurs. The meetings, which begin at 5 p.m., offer unique opportunities to meet with other women business owners. Attendees will find the gathering is a place to share challenges and experiences, and to gain information that will help take a business to the next level.
This event is free to AWOB members and first-time guests; the fee for all others is $25, payable at the door. New members can sign up at the meeting.
A special feature of the Power Series meeting is the AWOB Meet Me After Hours, a no-host dinner, held after the meeting in the Inn at Gig Harbor restaurant. This casual one-on-one setting allows attendees to converse with the presenters and to continue networking with other women business owners in the area.
