CNY in Focus: Turn your passion into a business

The WISE Business Center and Syracuse's South Side Innovation Center are looking for 30 'women of faith' who'd like to turn their hobby/passion into a business. Joanne Lenweaver, from WISE, says the program gets federal dollars to encourage women entrepreneurship, and the effort is to get more women contractors by helping turn lifestyle skills, like cooking, catering, crafts, into an actual business. The sessions, planned for Tuesdays in July (6 - 7:30pm) at the South Side Innovation Center on South Salina Street, are free. For more information, contact Alicia Millington at 443-8634
