Washington, DC  With the unstable conditions of the stock market and government shut down, all while dealing with holiday shopping hangovers, consumers are feeling a huge financial pinch in the pocket book. People are now realizing that creating multiple streams of income is no longer a fantasy, but a necessity to make ends meet. With this reality, women are stepping up and building businesses. In fact, 4 out of 10 businesses are owned by women and based on the 2018 State of Women-Owned Business Report by American Express, "As of 2018, there are 12.3 million women-owned businesses in the U.S."

As more women explore the opportunities of entrepreneurship, access to information, education, mentoring and resources become more necessary. "The purpose of the B.O.S.S. (Business Owner Success Strategies) Brunch is to give new women entrepreneurs information and resources they need to be successful with their business and for a reasonable investment in an intimate and supportive environment," said BOSS Brunch Founder, international speaker, author and financial expert, Tarra Jackson, known as Madam Money.

Jackson will host the BOSS Brunch for the fifth year in the Washington D.C. area on Saturday, January 12. Every year the BOSS Brunch focuses on topics crucial to the success of women entrepreneurs. "Based on the feedback from over 1,000 women entrepreneurs in my #WomensWealth Network, most requested help with gaining more media exposure and understanding marketing and branding. So, this year will be focus on: Media, Marketing and Branding Strategies to Grow Business Profits," said Jackson.
