To provide women entrepreneurs, entry to pivotal enterprise assets, RealTalk for Business Growth™, a new program has been launched. Serial entrepreneur, speaker, coach and advocate for women entrepreneurs, Maureen Borzacchiello, conceived the program to bring together growth-minded women entrepreneurs, providing them with educational strategies and plans to help grow and scale their businesses and themselves. The program is uniquely crafted to support growth-minded businesses who have success but may be struggling to accelerate it to the next level as they stagnate within the $250K-$5million revenue range.
Underscoring this need, the 2019 American Express State of Women-Owned Businesses Report reveals over the last five years the number of women-owned businesses has grown by 21 percent compared to nine percent growth of overall businesses during the same period, yet only 12 percent exceed $100K in revenue and 1.7 percent ever achieve $1M in annual revenue. “There is an abundance of information available online, which can be overwhelming, so we’ve made it more efficient for women by pulling together what they need to take their businesses and lives to the next level,” said Maureen Borzacchiello, CEO, Maureen Borzacchiello, Inc. She further added “Being authentic is key to the RealTalk journey. I personally had to overcome Imposter Syndrome and shake off the stigmas associated with asking for help. Doing so was incredibly empowering; it changed the game for my business and in-fact contributed to achieving our first million in revenue. I started this program so more women can experience this forward motion and lift others up along their way”.
