WWBC Launches 12 Month Program for Entrepreneurs


The Western Women’s Business Center (WWBC) has opened registration for the second session of the worldwide renowned Best Year Yet® program.

The Best Year Yet® is a unique 12-month program designed to help small business owners and entrepreneurs to develop a plan that will align them with their purpose, passion and success factors to claim their “Best Year Yet.” This program was created by founder Jinny Ditzler and is used by major corporations worldwide including banks, government agencies, small businesses and non-profits.

The WWBC, a program of the statewide nonprofit and small business lender, Carolina Small Business Development Fund, is offering this program with a mission to help entrepreneurs and business professionals succeed.

Best Year Yet® is divided into two phases:

  1. Workshop session held on February 9, 2017
  2. 12-month coaching program

The workshop facilitators, Annice Brown and Jen Aly, are experienced coaches who will guide the participants through an interactive program meant to help create the top ten goals for 2017.

“When we launched the Best Year Yet in September, it was a pilot program.  When 28 women signed up, it was beyond our expectations as were the evaluations. So, we are launching the next program in February for both men and women,” said Annice Brown. “Some of the women being coached have embraced the online program and we expect more to use it in February as well as the new phone app that just came out which allows users to track their 12-month Best Year Yet Plan.”

Each participant will be empowered to create their personal strategic action plan by examining challenges and achievements leading them to create a new focus or paradigm. This paradigm (built into the plan) will enable each participant to develop the habit of constantly assessing himself/herself for strengths and weaknesses so they can identify what knowledge, skills, and attitudes are needed to accomplish their goals.

All the participants will emerge with a personalized plan including both business and personal goals which will serve as the basis for the individualized and group coaching over the next 12 months.

“This program gives start up business owners and professionals a community of solid support for 12 months and beyond. This consistent, on-going support from peers and a coach gives people an opportunity to really make things happen that they have been wanting for a while. This is true not only with business goals, but personal aspirations as well,” said Jen Aly, M.S., Coach.
