Core Mission

Helping Women Help Themselves (HWHT) was created to provide individuals with the necessary education to help them successfully own and operate their own small business. Education is provided through local seminars and the organization’s complimentary business manual. Most importantly, HWHT also provides on-going business support to individuals after they attend one of their educational seminars. The on-going business support includes one-on-one consultations on a wide range of business topics and basic graphic arts services. All services provided by HWHT are at no charge to the individual. The only request to the individual is to “Pay it Forward” to others.



Thanks for reaching out to the micro-business entrepreneurs like me. I had started to make the shift toward what I wanted but felt like a boat going around in circles. Thank you for your directions, always honoring my choice and thoughts. I am very grateful.
