    Last week NAWBO was at the table when business leaders representing a broad spectrum of constituencies held a post-election briefing at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, to discuss the mid-term election results and how the new Congress will impact entrepreneurs.

  • The Ongoing Need for Focusing on Advocacy October 29, 2010

    This month, politics and the impact they have on business are top of mind for us all. Every two years, as we listen to political debates, campaigns and plans, we’re reminded of the political process’ importance. During these times, women business owners face significant impacts on their businesses and this election is no exception. Still, regardless of this election’s outcomes, the process doesn’t end. That’s the beauty of our system and one of the many reasons why NAWBO is continuously working on behalf of women business owners.

  • The Roadmap to 2020 and The Missing Middle September 29, 2010

    As one of the most known organizations for women, we have some exciting opportunities here at NAWBO. Each day they present themselves and offer us a real chance to make a difference in the community around us—both for women and business owners at large. Recently, we had the opportunity to weigh in on an action plan that I personally believe will lead to exponential revenue growth and job creation among women's businesses over the next decade. It’s an exciting time for us all.

  • 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.
