"The best use of my time this summer, I learnt more in this intensive program from the most inspirational ladies than I have in any other business series. Having women mentors and peers made all the difference. It wasn't until the PAROJetsetter BIZCamp that I realized all the other courses I had taken had male role models and with very few female-led and highly successful mentors female owners to look up to. This course gave me the confidence to take the next steps into the small business world. Thank you PARO!"
