Ladies Artisan Market (LAM) is a female owned and operated business that creates, facilitates, and operates live and online marketplaces, events, conferences, workshops/trainings, coffee-dates, and networking events for women in business. We support businesswomen through empowerment, inspiration, education, collaboration and networking opportunities that promote both personal and business growth. LAM runs a multifaceted, value-packed free private Facebook group composed of over 1,500 local Hawai’i island businesswomen, entrepreneurs, artists, and entertainers. In January 2021, LAM expanded on their free offerings and now includes a fee-based membership program called the Whole Business Woman Academy (WBWA). Members of WBWA are given access to instruction and inspiration from experts and other successful businesswomen, enabling them to take steps to achieve their goals and find their version of success.
