Hi, I’m Christy Wright!

For years I’ve been part of Dave Ramsey’s team, equipping women to make money doing what they love. I grew up watching my mom run her bakery as a single parent, and that really ignited a fire in me to help women step into their God-given gifts, overcome fear, and make money by living their dream. And that’s why I created Business Boutique for you!

When you attend Business Boutique, you can expect to walk away with new friends, new connections, and new insights. You’ll also hear from some true rock star speakers on the topics of marketing, sales, social media, pricing, budgeting and more! We’ll give you practical tools that can be implemented in your business immediately, including:

  • A written, actionable plan to help you achieve your unique goals
  • Simple but effective ways to use marketing and social media to authentically connect with your customers
  • A thorough understanding of how to serve your customers—and how to sell to them
  • The knowledge of how to charge what your worth, how much to put aside for taxes, and how to create a fool-proof business budget
  • Inspiration to answer God’s calling, overcome difficulty, and turn your idea into income

Seats are no longer available.

  • Megan Tamte
    Co-Founder of Evereve

    Megan Tamte spent eight years envisioning a fashion brand for moms—dreaming, learning, planning and wondering if a former third grade teacher could make it real. Ultimately, belief in herself trumped her lack of experience, and in 2004 she, along with her husband, opened their first store in Edina, Minnesota. Now they have more than 80 stores across the country.

    Formerly Hot Mama, Evereve is a fast-growing national chain of boutiques aimed at young mothers. Launched in suburban Minneapolis in 2004, Evereve today is profitable, debt-free, and on pace to deliver nearly $70 million in revenue this year.
