Inspire Reno celebrates its grand opening with ribbon-cutting ceremony this Friday and one of our Influence 100 Authorities is taking part. We couldn't be happier to share the news with Influence readers and congratulate Christa on continuing to be an active and inspired woman of Influence!
Inspire Reno, a center focused on professional and personal development for women, celebrates its grand opening on Friday, April 13 from 3-8 p.m. at their headquarters, located at 615 Riverside Drive in downtown Reno. Hosted by Inspire Reno Founder and Director Susan Ackerman and more than 30 members of the organization, the celebration includes a 4pm ribbon-cutting ceremony provided by the Reno-Sparks Chamber of Commerce, followed by presentations by special guests, live music, food trucks, facility tours to show what the organization has to offer and information on membership.
Established Jan. 1, 2018, Inspire Reno offers a positive and creative environment for women of all ages and stages of entrepreneurship to grow both personally and professionally. Events such as “The Psychology of Selling: Charging What your Worth” and “Social Media & Your Business” are presented by community professionals and offered to the public, while members of Inspire Reno can take advantage of members-only information, mentorships, cooperative work and presentation space, social events, workshops, referrals, events and mastermind sessions, among other benefits.
Founder and Director Susan Ackerman is an author, speaker, motivator and entrepreneur who holds bachelor’s degrees in psychology and creative writing, with a minor in women’s studies from Chatham University in Pittsburgh, Pa. Ackerman also studied life and transition coaching and earned a certified professional coach title at the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (IPEC). She’s a ten-year leader in direct sales and training large groups how to build a successful business, and is now applying her expertise through Inspire Reno.
“To have the opportunity to provide such a valuable resource to women entrepreneurs in our community is a dream come true. I’ve witnessed over my years as an entrepreneur the fear that so many women face in starting or building their own businesses, the challenges they encounter and their own personal struggles to continue,” states Ackerman. “To have a place that works on building women in all areas of their lives, watching them grow into the best versions of themselves and providing them with the tools to rise into their own power is both energizing and rewarding.”
