Phoenix women business owners will have the opportunity to apply for an eight-month mentoring program to hone their skills in a variety of disciplines. The program, offered by the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) Phoenix, will feature seasoned businesswomen volunteers who will be coaching and teaching a variety of disciplines to those accepted in the program. These areas include strategic planning, financial considerations, marketing, and sales.  Only twenty women will be accepted into the program.

NAWBO Phoenix has nearly one hundred people who have graduated from the mentoring program, since its inception ten years ago.

According to Selina Schuh, Co-Director of Mentoring for NAWBO, “This program is perfect for someone who has already launched their business but is relatively new to business and looking for help from established business owners,” she said.

Rosaria Cain, who has been CEO of local ad agency knoodle, will work alongside Schuh in the direction of the program. “Teaching is my passion and lending a hand to aspiring business owners is the NAWBO mission here,” she said.

The program requires a time commitment of at least ten hours per month. Each month will focus on a key business discipline and a mastermind session led by successful business owners, serving as mentors.
