  • 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.

  • STEPPING OUT December 9, 2013

    Do the holidays and year-end feel like they come sooner every year? Research shows there’s actually a reason for this. When we are younger, we constantly experience and learn new things that take time to anticipate and process.

  • NAWBO Boards Are Great Places For Servant Leaders November 8, 2013

    At last month’s NAWBO Women’s Business Conference, our current, past and incoming presidents were invited to stay on through Saturday for a very special event in their honor. We had invited Joe Iarocci, CEO of the Robert K. Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership, there to speak to our own servant leaders that drive the success of NAWBO through their passion and excellence. If you’re not familiar with the servant leadership philosophy and practices that have been proven to enrich lives, build better organizations and create a more caring world, the term was introduced in 1970 by Robert K.
