Mary Balistreri Joins the NAWBO Chicago Board
This Fall marked an exciting new chapter for Mary Balistreri and other women business owners in Wisconsin...literally. The state is now home to the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) Wisconsin, a satellite office of its neighboring chapter, NAWBO Chicago.
Mary Balistreri, the Mindful Business Coach, is a Certified Conversational Intelligence Coach with 20 years of experience as a business development professional. Through her company (MBT More Business Today), she has been meeting several female entrepreneurs who could significantly benefit from NAWBO and the resources that the organization provides its members. As a result, Mary was inspired to work with NAWBO Chicago to launch the Wisconsin satellite. She will play an integral role in establishing NAWBO’s presence in Wisconsin. She will spearhead recruitment in the state, connecting with entrepreneurial women from Green Bay to Wauwatosa, the city that Balistreri calls home.
As one of the largest NAWBO chapters, NAWBO Chicago is excited to extend its reach via NAWBO Wisconsin and provide an inclusive business community to women business owners in the state.
Keeping in line with NAWBO Chicago’s mission, NAWBO Wisconsin aims to:
- Build strategic alliances, coalitions and affiliations
- Create innovative and effective change in the business culture
- Strengthen the wealth-creating capacity of members and promote economic development
