What Would You Do If You Knew You Couldn't Fail?

As I step in as NAWBO California president, I'm experiencing a swirling mixture of emotions: excitement and optimism for sure - opportunity for women business owners has never been greater, and I feel inspired with goals for advancing NAWBO CA, our chapters and the influence of women business owners in general across California. There is also anxiety; with such room for growth, how can a real difference be made in just a year? I also feel blessed and a little intimidated to be following the footsteps of the amazing Hilda Kennedy, who leads with such grace and wisdom. It reminds me of the swirling mix of conflicting emotions I felt when I set out to start my business.
