Spring brings a renewal of the spirit and that is exactly what is happening with the LEADS Group from the Alamance County Chamber of Commerce. The group partners with the Alamance Community College Small Business Center to host networking events for its members, but this Spring they are renewing their energy with a host of workshops that will be Powered by NC’S #1 Small Business Facilitator, Chisa D. Pennix-Brown, MBA of Lady Bizness.
Pennix-Brown has been teaching for the #AlamanceSBC for almost two years and was selected to bring a fresh program to the morning LEADS group to help existing business owners recharge their mojo in relation to marketing and enhancing individual skillsets. This particular Lead Your Business Series is monumental because this will be the first time the event has been open to the public. In an effort to increase membership for the Chamber and bring in entrepreneurs who may need mentors, referrals, and networking opportunities this event serves at a catalyst for change in the county.
