SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For women entrepreneurs: know the common and critical mistakes entrepreneurs are apt to make and do everything in your power to avoid them.
Utah Entrepreneur Michelle McCullough will highlight entrepreneur mistake-avoidance maneuvers in a specialized Grow America (http://www.growam.com) Mentor Strategy Session for women in business. The event is August 21, 2012 at the Zions Bank Founders Room at 1 South Main Street in Salt Lake City, Utah. Networking and light refreshments will begin at 3 p.m. with McCullough's presentation beginning 3:30 p.m. The event is free of charge and open to the public.
Michelle McCullough started Doodads Promotional Products when she was 19 and has spent the last 12 years working in marketing and advertising. She's worked in all aspects of the industry from production to creative to sales to management. McCullough cultivated her love for entrepreneurship by founding and running Doodads Promotional Products as a successful side business. In 2008 she quit her full-time job to be home with her newborn son and moved Doodads to the front burner, doubling its income in 2008 and again in 2009 despite the recession. She also became a partner in Startup Princess in 2008.
"Everyone is aware that there are plenty of entrepreneurial mistakes that can sink fledgling startups," said McCullough. "The key to success is identifying these mistakes and arming yourself with the tools and knowledge to stay away from them completely."
Grow America's Mentor Strategy Sessions are a resource offered by the organization as a growth and education opportunity for its registrants and members.
"Ms. McCullough knows what it takes to get a business off the ground," said Richard Swart, executive vice president at Grow America. "Sometimes achieving success means knowing what not to do. Michelle's insight and knowledge will help entrepreneurs avoid business-killing pitfalls."
