Hi Ladies,

I want to introduce myself. I am Kathy McShane, a businesswoman, wife, mom, and entrepreneur and Managing Director of Ladies Who Launch in Connecticut.

If you are a woman who is serious about launching or expanding your business then you should talk to me. I am dedicated to bring workshops and networking opportunities to women entrepreneurs that will give them a road map to achieving their goals.

I bring 25 years of marketing and product/brand development expertise to the Ladies Who Launch organization. I have run businesses for major financial institutions as well as my own, so I know the issues you face, and, more importantly, I know how to address and overcome them.

I look forward to helping you.  

Kind regards
