January 12, 2010
Not even the cold weather could stop an audience of female entrepreneurs from attending the January 12, 2010 Women's Initiative Luncheon Program, "Starting Your Own Business." Panelists Elizabeth Corradino, Kimberly Klein and Stella Lellos discussed legal issues that new business owners should consider like registering a trademark, hiring independent contractors v. employees and forming a specific type of entity for tax purposes. Cathy Frankel moderated the panel which was rounded out by guest speaker Jill Tipograph, the owner of two businesses: Everything Summer® and Camp Tips. Jill revealed some "lessons learned" when starting her businesses and encouraged the audience to seek legal counsel to avoid making irreversible mistakes. The value of the information provided was evident by the number of questions asked and the fact that audience members were still on hand an hour after the program officially ended.
