Working Towards Her Dream

After working in the tourism industry for more than 30 years, Francesca had a dream of wanting to own and operate her own boutique tour company - but she needed the right tools to get her vision off the ground. She called the Center for Women & Enterprise (CWE), and enrolled in the Business Planning program. 

After fourteen weeks of intensive study– and one solid business plan later – Francesca is poised to launch her Boston-based tour company, which will offer year-round, high-quality historical and cultural tours of our beautiful state and the rest of historic New England.

The benefits I received since making contact with CWE have been spectacular!  Most recently, I have been able to meet with a CWE consultant whose business acumen, penchant for perfection, and impeccable high standards are now my driving force.”  - Francesca Taverna

As Francesca will tell you, following a dream to do what you love is important because it is exactly what small business owners – the folks that drive our regional economy – do every single day.
