TAMPA __ The Women’s Business Centre at the Centre for Women will host a live virtual workshop with media powerhouse, author and entrepreneur Nely Galán on November 6 at 1 p.m. to help business women learn how to be “Self Made through the Crisis of Your Life.” Those that purchase VIP tickets will have the opportunity to participate in a live Q&A with Nely. Galán is the author of the New York Times bestselling book Self Made, Becoming Empowered, Self-Reliant, and Rich in Every Way. It focuses on the revolution in women’s entrepreneurship led by women in the US and around the world.

Her strategies are designed to help women to take control of their lives financially. Now more than ever, entrepreneurship is a beacon of financial freedom for women owned businesses.”

She is an Emmy Award-winning producer of more than 700 episodes of television in English and Spanish, which she produced through her multi-media company Galán Entertainment.
