Can you imagine going to Russia, learning the language and starting your own business there? That’s the equivalent of what Alfya Murtazina did. (Yes, I know that Russia hasn’t got quite the entrepreneurial support systems that we do, but…) She arrived here, learned a new language, went to work for someone else for several years and last year opened up her own salon in New Canaan.
Last night 30 remarkable women gathered in her beautiful, serene spa for an evening of inspiration and networking. Alfya shared some of her story and then joined the 5 other experts to offer tips, strategies and a new perspective to each attendee. Many thanks to Betsy Krobot, Scarlett DeBease, Liz Ball and Tracy Boyce who also contributed their vast expertise.
