Building a Business—Entrepreneurship 101

August 5, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm




with Charisse McGill, Founder of Lokal Artisan Foods and Creator of French Toast Bites

 In November 2018, Charisse McGill resigned from her day job and two days later, opened her French Toast Bites stand in the middle of Philadelphia. In the first 45 days, she grossed 3/4 of her former annual salary, and since then, has opened up two retail locations, brought a product to market, and has participated in more than 180 events all over the region. On August 5 at 3 p.m., Charisse will tell her story on how she built her business and pursued her passion for entrepreneurship… and how you can do the same.
