What’s amazing about this Women on the Rise Forum & Expo is that it was the dream of one of our very own Valley Stream Moms, Marsha Guerrier. I remember when she started in a small room in the newly renovated VS Community Center and now it’s in a large ballroom.
If you have a business or are thinking of starting one, you need to be here. I follow some of the women <— on this flyer and they are absolutely phenomenal, inspirational, and they are walking the walk. I attended last year and trust me. You’ll learn alot to push your business forward.
