You may still be planning your journey into entrepreneurship or have decided to take the plunge and go after a dream or life project. Regardless of your stage, knowing that you are not alone and there is plenty of support out there is comforting and encouraging. For the past couple of months, I have gone to talks, Meetups and events dedicated to entrepreneurs and been amazed how they can be helpful, especially for women as many of them are dedicated to us!
