With Nancy Chorpenning

Founder and Managing Director of C-Suite Advisors, Nancy Chorpenning joined us in the studio today to talk all things emotions at work.

C-Suite Advisors, LLC offers business advisory services to Business Owners across industries. Our clients are Entrepreneurs, Business Owners, and Managing Partners of Professional Practices, typically with 5 – 50 employees and revenues of $1 million to $20 million, who are growing and transforming their business from Entrepreneurial Start-up to a Professionally Managed Business, building a business that is (eventually) “sellable,” while maintaining their entrepreneurial energy and spirit. Our specialty is working with women entrepreneurs and business owners.


Nancy also leads peer mentoring for women business owners, and offers webinars on planning, leadership, profitability and strategy among other business topics. In 2014, she is launching two new program series exclusively for women entrepreneurs: CEO School for Women, an Annual Business Growth Program, and Taming Technology Workshops: Today’s Technology for Women Entrepreneurs.
