As a female Entrepreneur, I am excited to meet Amilya this week.
I have been attending this fantastic free lecture series at Westminster. It is open to the public and you don’t have to be a student to attend. As a member of the community I have learned so much from these great entrepreneurs over the last two months. Being a business owner is often times lonely and I have enjoyed meeting other entrepreneurs and learning from the greats.
Utah has ranked #1 fastest growing state for female entrepreneurs (The top three fastest growing states, based on an average rank of 1997 to 2004 growth rates, in the number of privately-held, 50% or more women-owned firms, employment and sales are: 1) Utah; 2) Arizona; and 3) Nevada. –Center for Women’s Business Research, 2005 http://www.entrepreneur.com/encyclopedia/businessstatistics/article82018.html)

6:30 pm Anthony Tesoriero, Founder and CEO of Solarceutical, Cofounder of the Lucky Napkin
Defying the experts, Anthony decided one day to take on the giants of cosmetics and leaders of the TV shopping industries. In a little more than a year, Bella Bronze, the premier brand from Solarceuticals broke onto QVC, erasing records and outpacing sales of established brands. Countless awards, media, and celebrity accolades later you’ll find Anthony’s products in stores such as Fred Segal of Beverly Hills, right along side the “big boys.” Anthony is a brilliant strategic marketing and branding wizard who has been addressing audiences worldwide for over 15 years.
8:00 pm Amilya Antonetti, Founder of Soapworks, Cofounder of the Lucky Napkin

She’s a mom who was determined to help her ailing son and in the process took on the world’s largest corporations, ushered in the green and human friendly movement and changed the way the world looks at cleaning products forever. A regular guest on Fox News Strategy Room, Amilya is a guerilla marketing guru and lifestyle product expert and truly an inspiration for all entrepreneurs to emulate.
