Charlene Dupray left a career as a headhunter in New York City to come back to Wilmington, where she grew up, to start a business and a family. But for now, developing South n' France, the bon bon company she runs with her husband, is the priority.
"Having an infant business and an infant at the same time, I think, would be a big challenge," said Dupray, an alumnus of the local Ladies Who Launch.
The biggest benefits from being in the group have come on the national level, she said. She is going to be featured on Lifetime Television's Web site, lifetime tv.com, she said. And she recently flew to Chicago for a chance to pitch her business for inclusion in Country Living's "Women Entrepreneurs" issue, again something Ladies Who Launch helped her gain.
She learned of both opportunities through the group, she said. "I've had a lot of success with them."
