Taking a break from our normal topics, I just wanted to take a quick moment to encourage any women entrepreneurs or aspiring entrepreneurs in the New York tri-state area to attend the Own It Ventures Annual Conference and Pitching Expo March 20, 2013 at CUNY.  For more details, click here.


Own It Ventures is a great organization that provides support and creates opportunities for women entrepreneurs.  Full disclosure: I am a member of the Advisory Board, but my bias in favor of the organization is justified.  For instance, at the conference, women will have an opportunity to present their products to investors, media and retail buyers, such as Kevin Harrington from ABC’s Shark Tank, the Huffington Post, and Bloomingdales.


I am looking forward to seeing the announcement of the Sharkette Tank winner and a lot of innovative products at this year’s conference.


I will be speaking in the "Growth Panel" on health care and hiring issues impacting employers, including the obligations under the new Healthcare Act.  If you come to the event, please say hello or introduce yourself if we have not already met as I would love to meet you.
