January Stage Series

Register/ Modify Registration

What is Stage Series?


Stage Series is a new bi-monthly offering exclusively for women-owned businesses.
Each series consists of three virtual events that include small group networking, a
presentation, and a workshop. For each series, there is an overarching business topic.
For each event, the presentation sub-topic differs based on the business stage targeted:
Start Up (under 3 years), Emerging (3 – 5 years), or Sustaining (5+ years).

Each stage will meet 6 times in 2022, January through November, typically on the
third week of alternating months, with the Start Up session on Tuesday, the Emerging
session on Wednesday, and the Sustaining session on Thursday. While each event has an
intentional target stage, you are welcome to sign up for any and all topics you feel are
relevant to your business.

Open exclusively to women-owned businesses, this is a safe space to bring your questions
about a particular topic and specific scenarios you’re experiencing in your business for which
you want resolution.

Questions? Contact WBCS Senior Director of Programs, Elizabeth Garner.

Start Up Stage Session

Date: Tuesday, January 18
Speaker: Nikkie Achartz, SNAP Savvy Strategies
Topic: Pump Up Profits and Pricing with Clarity and ConfidenceHow to Build a Profitable Service Based Business that Will Have you Working Smarter not Harder!

Are you struggling to move prospects from “I’m interested” to actual income? Are you playing a guessing game on what to charge, and you’re stuck writing custom proposals that just don’t close?

If you answered YES to either or both questions, then ​​get ready to find the gaps, fix the leaks and fill your pipeline, so you can move out of running lean and into optimal growth!

In this highly engaging, content rich, edu-taining workshop, we'll be covering how to:

  • identify where your business may be constricting or falling short on opportunities for increasing cash flow
  • develop a sales funnel and sales process that smoothly moves prospects from interest to top dollar income by offering the prospect the right fit at the right price
  • adjust pricing and service offerings to ensure they meet both the needs of your prospects and your profit margins

Sustaining Stage Session

Date: Thursday, January 20
Speaker: Debbie Mrazek, The Sales Company

Do you want to get to that sales goal you dream about? Then, why haven't you created a sales forecast to help you plan on how you are going to get there?

Please join us to learn:

  • why you want to have a sales forecast

This 25-year journey has yielded her a considerable amount of experience and knowledge in every aspect of sales. While she was blessed and thankful for these opportunities and enjoyed her time in big corporate America, it did however; reach the point where the high travel demands no longer suited her. SHe decided to take some time to re-examine, what's important to her "why it's important to me" and "who is important to me".

Upon completion of the examination, she decided to stop focusing on growing corporate dynasties and focus on building her legacy and helping small businesses to mid-size businesses do the same.

Debbie Mrazek
The Sales Company

I can’t remember a time when I didn’t get a “thrill” from helping someone. Helping others is a way of life for me.

After enjoying so much success in the technology industry back in the “good ol’ days” of selling for many different manufacturing companies, I felt like I had earned a PhD in sales. My “helping” grew from selling for different companies to consulting with companies about how they could sell better, smarter and make more doing what they were already doing.

Early on, I realized that my view of sales was very different than other consultants’ view of sales. I asked lots of questions about everything from hiring the right people to how the company was doing overall financially. The end result often took us away from sales consulting and moved the company toward the real problems that were affecting sales.

Today, my dream of The Sales Company is alive and well as a solopreneur consultant. That was—and still is—a great way for me to personally work with the individuals and companies who want to work personally with me. However, I always knew what I really wanted.
