  • Technology: It’s Everywhere…or Is It? July 14, 2016

    Technology is everywhere—entwined in nearly every area of our lives. As women business owners, in particular, it makes us faster, smarter and more efficient. It connects us with employees, customers and vendor partners and even with family and friends while at work or on the road. It allows us to share ideas and resources, advocate and lead with our NAWBO sisters across the country when we’re not able to come together in person. And it enables us to be on the leading edge of today’s business tools, processes and solutions.

  • Education Keeps Us Current and Competitive June 6, 2016

    As entrepreneurs, education opportunities present themselves in so many ways. We learn from other women business owners as part of NAWBO or by serving on the national or a local chapter board. We benefit from attending conferences, like the National Women’s Business Conference, and training events in our industries and fields. And many of us take advantage of more traditional education opportunities, like earning specialized college degrees or becoming certified women’s business enterprises.

  • It Takes Money to Make Money April 1, 2016

    You’ve heard it before: It takes money to make money. As women entrepreneurs, we know this all too well as we work to access the capital we need—whether it’s through personal savings, traditional bank loans, venture capital money or even crowdfunding—to start new ventures or grow existing businesses to the next level.

  • Leadership in the Spotlight March 10, 2016

    As women business owners, when we think about the topic of leadership—the theme of this month’s issue of NAWBO ONE—a lot of things come to mind. We are leaders in our businesses, households and communities. We have friends, customers and vendor partners in prominent leadership positions in corporate America. And, of course, with election season in full swing, we think about our political leaders—both male and female—and the issues we care about most that we hope they’ll embrace and support.

  • Beauty and Strength of Diversity February 15, 2016

    The great late poet and author Maya Angelou once said, “It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.”

    February is Black History Month. It’s a great time to reflect on the beauty and strength that diversity does indeed bring to our lives and our businesses as women entrepreneurs. New information. Different perspectives. Individual expertise. Unique backgrounds. These are just a few of the benefits.

  • Here’s to a Happier and Healthier You in 2016! January 13, 2016

    As women, we’re natural caregivers. We take care of our family and friends, and as women business owners, we also care for our employees, customers and vendor partners, often putting our own health and wellbeing last on the long list of priorities. This can result in stress, wreak havoc on our health and, ultimately, take away our ability to care for others in the way we like.

  • It’s a Great Time for Women-Owned Small Businesses October 23, 2015

    My sister makes amazing handcrafted jewelry, and I’m not just saying that because she’s my sister. It’s a passion that I’ve watched her develop over the years alongside having a successful career. I invited her to last month’s NAWBO Women’s Business Conference in San Antonio to connect with other entrepreneurial women and be inspired and ready if she decides to go “all in” as a small business owner.

  • Why Belonging Is Important January 10, 2014

    As humans, we have a natural, fundamental need to belong—to one another, to our friends and family, to our culture, to our community and to our world. That’s because belonging makes us feel like, good or bad, we’re not in this alone; we’re in it together with a powerful support system wanting to see us happy, healthy, motivated and successful.
