East Texas women are getting inspired and encouraged to become entrepreneurs.
Tuesday marked the 15th Annual Women Entrepreneurs Conference. This was the first year for the event to be held in February, instead of April. And with record attendance, the event was moved to Green Acres Crosswalk Center for more space.
Organizer Holly Rand said women in business are vital to the local economy and hopes more women will join them next year. "This conference is very inspirational for women, whether they own a business or don't own a business, whether they're just attending with a friend and it gives them ideas to take away. Plus, it allows them to network, build up their contacts, have some fun along the way."
