SJ11 – Bossy or The Boss? with The Good Lemon

We were joined by two brilliant women who are building a digital marketing and communications consulting business: The Good Lemon. We know that the startup space is different (and in many cases more difficult) for women. Come listen to some folks who are more qualified than we are to talk about that.

Megan and Katie will shared their perspectives and answered questions from the audience about what it’s like as women starting their own business, how to get a business up and running quickly, and graciously gave us some free digital communications advice.

Megan and Katie also mentioned two of their clients during the show. Those links are here.
