Welcome to ACP's Business Luncheon

--- Listen to a Successful Entrepreneur, President of Elibabeth Showers Jewelries

To provide a networking opportunity for the communities, Association of Chinese Professionals (ACP) will host a business luncheon on June 15th.

Elizabeth Showers' life story has all the elements of a great novel, one involving triumph over adversity, fearless risk-taking and the determined pursuit of a dream. She decided to start her own business with twelve credit cards after taking a jewelry-making class. After seven years, her jewelry has not gone unnoticed. Her jewelry is available at Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and many other high-end specialty boutiques. Hollywood heavy weights Sharon Stone, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jeniffer Lopez and Queen Latifah have been adorned with her design and wore her jewelry in "the Wedding Planner" and in "Bring Down the House". Showers and her jewelry have been featured on CNN and Oprah's shows and have been profiled in InStyle, Elle, People and Cosmopolitan as well as many other fashion and industry magazines.

Do you want to know such a successful entrepreneur personally? Do you want to find out the stories behind her and how she overcame the difficulties she encountered? Do you intend to know more business partners? Please come to our Business Luncheon to find all the solutions.
