    Hi my name is Catherine Fulwood a business professional who is not an entrepreneur at the moment; however, was wondering if it is possible to pay the price and sit in on a presentation (preferably the 7/21 one @ Justins in Syracuse,NY)? Question: Do you have to be a member or be accompanied by a member in order to sit in on a presentaion?

      Thanks for the question. Our programs are open to all women – whether you are a member or not, whether you have a business or not. We want women to come and learn about us and then decide to become a member. Register online for any of our events at We look forward to seeing you. Tracy
