"Proprietor’s Guild first retreat including first-hand knowledge from women-owned businesses on influencer marketing, insights into social media and how they run their businesses.  I can’t wait for the next one to learn more and connect with these women again!”

"As a new brand, I found The Proprietors Guild to be a beneficial resource for networking and mentorship. The recent retreat pulled back the proverbial curtain on Instagram/Social Media, how to work with influencers and how to develop meaningful partnerships.  I received valuable feedback and actionable items for my brand, which I was able to immediately implement.

I would absolutely recommend (and have recommended) The Proprietors Guild for brands wanting to take their business to the next level, regardless of their size.
