  • On the Horizon September 17, 2010

    Next year at about this time, we’ll be hosting the Women’s Business Conference in San Diego, California. For our members, it’s a key event that not only allows them to step out of their businesses for a few days and strategically think about the future, but to also listen to inspirational speakers, attend workshops and network with one another to connect with new opportunities, advice and support.

  • Small Business and Customer Service August 16, 2010

    Without strong customer service, small businesses struggle. At the heart of what we do, taking care of customers is paramount. It builds our referrals and bottom lines as happy customers share their experience, add-on services and return without additional marketing costs.

    Technology touches every aspect of our business and customer service is no different. Whether you’re meeting in person or via Skype, emailing with customers or responding to their queries on social networking sites, one-to-one connections with customers are more important than ever.

  • Operational Systems August 2, 2010

    The only people I’ve ever met who started a business because they have a love of operations are business consultants who specialize in just that. Most of our members started their businesses because they have a passion for their product, want to set their work schedules or desire to make an impact on the world around them. Operations, like human resources and accounting, is just one of the many hats small business owners wear as they grow their organizations.

  • An Eye Toward the Future June 30, 2010

    Life is busy; especially for women business owners.

    While women leaders juggle the ups and downs of business and life, the day-to-day challenges are often consuming. That’s especially true during this time in our economic history when leaders are rolling up their sleeves to help teams who are doing more with less…for less.

  • The Power of One June 4, 2010

    One of my favorite quotations is, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” The power of the first step, when all possibility lies before you, speaks to the many women entrepreneurs that belong to NAWBO—women who have chosen to take that step in their professional lives. When our conference committee chose the theme for this year’s WBC, it was just one of the many reasons why we chose The Power of One, but as we’ve geared up in the last few weeks, it’s become clear how true this power really is.

  • NAWBO Poised to Effect Positive Change and Growth May 14, 2010

    It has been said many times that a company is either growing, or it’s dying—there’s nothing in between. When the market is soaring, growth comes externally, in the form of sales and revenue. When the economy takes a hit, a company’s emphasis is instead, on besting internal operations, furthering quality processes for greater efficiency and refining strategy to gaining market share rapidly when the turnaround occurs.

  • NAWBO Hits the Hill May 7, 2010

    Guest blog from Kelly Scanlon, 2009-2010 Public Policy Chair

    In April, members of NAWBO’s Public Policy and Executive committees descended on Capitol Hill for a series of meetings with legislators, White House executives and SBA officials. The meetings were designed (1) to open a dialog between policymakers and NAWBO that would give NAWBO an opportunity to share the concerns of women business owners and (2) to learn firsthand about the current legislation and proposals coming out of Washington intended to address the economic challenges small businesses are facing.
