Our mission is to empower, strengthen and inspire women entrepreneurs to create a brighter future for themselves, their families and their communities.

Be the Change Foundation was founded by Marianne Clyde to train and equip women to own their own businesses. The organization offers a 12 week training course twice a year offering classes in identifying your vision, marketing, maintaining income and balance statements, as well as marketing and networking classes, and creating systems that work for your business. We also offer practical helps about identifying what kind of business entity works best for you, getting a business license and other legal ramifications of becoming an entrepreneur.
