Alva, Oklahoma, is my home town, and we have a group of partners supporting entrepreneurship. During the Global Entrepreneurship Week, the partners are sponsoring Entrepreneurship from Passions to Profit: Building your Business, and our own Glenna Mae is a featured speaker. (Go, Mom!)
At this event, the focus is on “how to build and encourage an entrepreneurial spirit in yourself and your community.”
So, if you are in the area, join us on Thursday, November 20, 2008, at the Northwestern Oklahoma State University Student Center Ballroom
