ActionCoach Presents Franchise Divas (4/8/08


Franchise Divas


On Tuesday, April 8th local women business owners will come together at the Columbia Hilton in Columbia, Maryland to support, educate and encourage other women who may be considering entrepreneurship. 


The evening will feature a presentation by MaryAnn Scully, Founder and President of Howard Bank. Ms. Scully was inspired to lead the capital raise for a new bank after the  multi state bank where she  formerly served in an executive management position was acquired by an out of state institution . Desirous of making an impact not just a salary, Ms. Scully used her hard-earned skills and networks to found a successful local community bank.


Britt Schroeter, a top consultant from FranChoice, the premier franchise consulting company matching would-be entrepreneurs with a franchise opportunity that best matches their needs, skills and interests, will give a presentation on finding the right franchise business. If you’ve ever thought about partnering with a franchise, you’ll want to listen to Ms. Schroeter discuss how to investigate and choose the business that will make the most sense for you from the over 2,000 franchise companies available today.


A panel discussion will follow and include:

Karen Boyd, Owner, ActionCOACH

Pat Lakata, Owner, Abrakadoodle

Chinyere Mathewson, Owner, Cartridge World

Julie Sullivan – Owner, Certa Pro

Mylene Thomas – Owner, Tropical Smoothie Café

Debbie Fratini, Owner, Fast Frame


The evening will begin at 6PM and Tropical Smoothie café will provide a variety of real fruit smoothies, specialty wraps and gourmet sandwiches.
