“I've learned strategies to run my business more effectively through monthly programming and relationships built with other women business owners. It has also been a forum for creating partnerships with fellow members to gain new business. As a working mom, I gain strength and encouragement from other working moms. Additionally, these women are my friends—we share something so unique in common!”
