Women Entrepreneurs’ Small Business Boot Camp


For our followers in Arizona, there’s a great conference coming up tomorrow, February 9th 2013, in Scottsdale. Knowing that Francine Hardaway is speaking, I’m just guessing the rest of the conference is going to be as great as she is. :-)

Seriously though, Francine is speaking on a topic near and dear to my heart – “Why Every Business Should Blog”. Content has been the single most important thing since I started helping companies get found on the web 15 years ago, and blogs are now the key way to share that content (and ensure it is findable by the search engines). As a blogger herself, Francine practices what she preaches. If you’ve been meaning to do more with your website or blog, and you’re in the Phoenix area, go see Francine tomorrow at the Chaparral Suites Resort in Scottsdale. Just $99! Registration.
