Karen Caruso keynote speaker at 2011 Women's Business Conference

The conference registration page states “The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has named Karen Caruso, CEO of Mind Your Business, Inc. (MYB) the North Carolina Small Business Person of the Year for 2011. The criteria for the award include: staying power – a substantiated history as an established business, growth in number of employees, innovativeness of product/service offered, response to adversity and contributions to community-oriented projects.” “Caruso faced challenges in a market dominated by men and large corporations, but she persevered. With the help of SBA sponsored counseling and training through SCORE, the North Carolina Small Business Technology and Development Center, and Mountain BizWorks, an SBA Women’s Business Center, the business has grown substantially. MYB now employs 14 people, and since 2004, operates in a 3,000 square foot facility in the mountains of Western North Carolina. MYB posted record profits in 2009 and 2010.” The conference provides the opportunity for women in business to learn skills to grow their business in a fantastic networking environment. Karen is an entrepreneur who has faced the many hurdles businesswomen face in today’s environment and hopes to provide inspiration to many, using her knowledge and experience to help others succeed. It’s an honor for Karen to be invited to speak, but also a well deserved accolade.
