Entrepreneurial Women

Thursday was a day for women to come out and show off their many talents, and get some good business advice as well. Tyler Junior College and the Small Business Development Center held their annual "Entrepreneurial Women's Networking Luncheon and Exhibit" this afternoon at TJC. Women from all over East Texas came to the event. Women who have their own small business got the chance to meet other small business owners and talk about their successes and failures. There was even a style show that showed women how to dress for success.

"Women are great business people because they are very organized and they are very focused," said Donald Proudfoot, Director of Small Business Development Center. "I think they make the best business people. I call them the immigrants within our country because they want it so bad and when they get it they really have the work ethic and the organizational skills to build great businesses."

Christella Rubio owns her own pottery business. She says this is a great opportunity for women to put themselves out there and share their ideas.

"We push ourselves," said Rubio. "We have very high expectations for ourselves as being working mothers, being wives and housewives." Rubio says she uses that same work ethic and drive in her small business.

This is the event's eighth year. Organizers say it's the biggest one yet with more than 250 people attending.
