Passion v. Arrogance

New Castle-Henry County Public Library welcomes author and former business owner Margaret Broderick. Broderick will share her story, as told in the book Passion V Arrogance: A Dana & Goliath Story of Wine, Women and Wrong! Broderick’s program will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 4, in the library’s upper level meeting room.

Broderick recounts a compelling story of a small Midwestern women-owned winery, their impressive start to international growth, the difficult business decision to close, and the results from the business world. The story captures the excitement, commitment and the dream that all entrepreneurs possess when they start. As someone who lived the story, Broderick will candidly discuss the mistakes, struggles and ultimate belief in the leadership, management and vision that allowed her, along with her partner, to continue the battle.

The program would be especially interesting for current and future entrepreneurs, and anyone who enjoys a good story.

Margaret Broderick, an Indiana University graduate, has a Masters in Business Administration and more than 17 years of management experience. The company she started received the 2000 and 2001 Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year finalist award, and the WNBA finalist of Entrepreneurial Spirit and Achievement Award (one of four out of 150 nationwide). Broderick is currently traveling the nation to talk about her business experience and her book.
