This week, EO joins with the Global Entrepreneurship Network in celebrating Global Entrepreneurship Week (#GEW2017), which credits the importance and growing impact of entrepreneurship, and features an international calendar of events and partnerships. From 13–19 November 2017, we’ll share exclusive content designed to inspire and inform every entrepreneur—whether you’re in start-up mode or you’re a battle-scarred founder. We believe in the power of learning to grow. We believe in the potential of entrepreneurship as a global force for change. Celebrate with us by visiting the EO Octane blog every day this week!
Women entrepreneurs across the world and across industries have unique stories and lessons to provide. Today, we celebrate Women’s Entrepreneurship Day by sharing the stories of five women.
EO podcast host David Will talks with Tiffany Largie about her extraordinary journey from making US$10 an hour to selling a US$2 million business. Listen as Tiffany recalls being a single mother who decided launching her own business was the only way to prosper. It was only when she stopped thinking small of herself that she realized she could make it big.
Tiffany Largie is the founder of Onwards to Freedom, coaching entrepreneurs to identify growth opportunities and solve business challenges. David Will is an entrepreneur in the software industry and host of EO’s 360° podcast. Both are EO members.
