Women of Worth and Excellence will present, Spark Sessions, a free event focused on the concept of entrepreneurship in the Oxford community starting this Saturday.
This will be the first in a six-part development series that will run from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. every Saturday from July 24 to August 21. The last class will take place from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, August 29.
All classes will be held at the Hampton Inn or the Oxford Conference Center.
Professionals from Oxford will moderate the discussions each week. The aim of the series is to create community by educating and inspiring entrepreneurship.
Everything from pitching a business idea to starting a real business will be covered.
People with or without an existing business plan – those who may not have an actual plan, but have a business idea – are encouraged to attend.
Spark Sessions is a new program from the non-profit organization Women of Worth and Excellence, led by local entrepreneur Tammy Herod.

Herod owns Tammy’s Hair Gallery and a local lawn service business, in addition to being a real estate agent.
