Hire a Pro w/o Getting Conned!

Do you need to hire a home service professional (contractor, electrician, painter, etc.) but don't know who to call or what to ask before hiring? Savvy Seattle Women is sponsoring a free workshop designed to help you "Hire a Pro without getting Conned."

The FREE workshop starts at 6PM on Wednesday, March 16th, with complimentary wine, cider and snacks. At 6:30 there will be a short presentation with handouts/checklists that give you specific things to do and ask vendors before hiring them. Location: Prudential office in Jefferson Square, 4700 42nd Av SW, Suite 600.

AND we have invited many local service professionals to come so you can interview them on the spot!

If you are a tradesperson, grab a fist full of your business cards and join us! You might just pick up a client or two!
