Join Women Entrepreneurs Sharing Their Secrets to Success
Speakers: Natasha Hopkins, Lindsay McPhail, and Suzanne Mathis McQueen
This month, three successful women entrepreneurs will share their experiences in starting and managing businesses. They will discuss issues such as how they got started, advice they received, and lessons they've learned from success and failure.
Natasha Hopkins, owner of The Rogue Grape, is an ambassador of Southern Oregon Wines. With a love of local wine and community, her passion can be seen and felt at the polished yet approachable wine bar in the heart of downtown Medford. Learning all she knows through the school of hard knocks, she follows her intuition and uses skills learned from an 18 year career in mortgage lending to run her business with a servant’s heart. As a champion of other women and of the Southern Oregon AVA, she believes that all boats rise with the tide. She believes in collaboration, co-promoting and community building.
In 2011, Lindsay McPhail's family received the gift of a home from ABC's Extreme Makeover Home Edition. Since then she has focused her energy on giving back to our amazing Southern Oregon community. In August of 2012, she and her mom launched Barnstormer's Vintage Fair which has grown into the biggest show of its kind in our region. Recently, she launched The Wild Woman magazine focusing on unleashing courage and adventure in all women. Finally, she and her husband just launched their first specialty coffee drive thru, Outsider Coffee. Their mission is to wake people up to their greatness through Inspirational calls to action so they can change themselves and their community.
Suzanne Mathis McQueen is the former owner of two hair salons in Ashland and created The Phoenix Day Spa in 1996. She sold the business as a turnkey operation with 30 employees in 2003. She is also a former president of WEO (now WESO).
These days, Suzanne is a womb wisdom educator and keeper of women’s mysteries. The author of 4 Seasons in 4 Weeks, she specializes in the 29-day female body clock, a natural rhythm that is critical to female balance, joy, and optimal daily experiences in health, business, and love. She is often a guest on telesummits and podcasts and manages her online courses, live presentations, and occasional retreats.
