How Do You Define Success?
Program by Mary Johanna Brown
Success doesn’t just happen- you have to create it. How do you define success? For some business leaders, success is defined by monetary rewards, while others say success is having a positive impact on others. Defining success in personal terms can even be more challenging!
Kick off our Seacoast Woman Network year by learning how to define success for yourself and your business.
