FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
LRAFB Spouse Selected to Attend Inc./Joining Forces Military Entrepreneurs Program
Little Rock Air Force Base, AR – September 7, 2011 – Growing a successful business as a military spouse or veteran is focus of Mentoring Fair in Washington DC.
Rebecca Williams has been running a professional photography business since early 2006. During that time the unique challenges that face military spouse entrepreneurs have been evident.
“The toughest part of holding a successful business in the military”, says Mrs. Williams, “is reestablishing my reputation and client base after every PCS.”
In August an initiative was announced by Inc. Magazine and Joining Forces that a Mentoring Fair would be held in Washington DC which would bring together the CEOs of Inc. Magazine’s 500 list with military families and veterans who were starting, or running their own businesses. Mrs. Williams submitted an application, which was subsequently accepted as one of only 100 participants in the Mentoring Fair.
“This is an amazing opportunity, and I am grateful to have been selected. The chance to get one on one business insight from CEOs who have built companies through all environments and economies is an invaluable resource. I hope to take away some great additions to my business plan.”
Rebecca Williams is the sole proprietor of Rebecca Williams Photography. Her studio is at her home, currently on Little Rock Air Force Base. She is a member of the Professional Photographers of America and has a City of Jacksonville business license.
