About the event

Come learn from a seasoned, successful entrepreneur on how to avoid the pitfalls YOU will run into when owning your own business.

Business Insider, an American financial and business news website, claims 99.7% of all companies in the United States are considered small. That’s approximately 28.8 million businesses. The Small Business Administration (SBA) states 20% have a chance of failing within the first year. Additionally, 34% of all new startups fail in year two, while very few businesses will make it beyond year five. Small business survival odds have not changed in over two decades

In this presentation, Darlene shares 12 main categories of challenges she faced to beat the odds of failure to make 4 of her startups successful. During the life of her companies, sales totaled over $40 Million. But as she will share, her success was not without overcoming challenges and many lessons learned.

  • How to avoid becoming a victim of online shoplifting 
  • Fake news on social media and 
  • How Elvis left the building
