The greatest benefit for joining is the connections. I didn’t join and expect to get business back, but the wealth of knowledge in our chapter and the resources of being able to call someone up and say, ‘What do I do?’ and everyone being so giving. Women just want to help women. Of all the organizations I’ve been in, this one is the most cohesive and willing to help. It’s not a competition; it’s really women who just want to help women by sharing their past struggles that could maybe help you avoid them.

Because I want to be in the company of leaders and here every woman is a sword. Swords really sharpen swords. Smart women sharpening the swords of other smart women. Passionate women sharpening the swords of other passionate women. Where else on the planet can you get that other than NAWBO? You’re exactly where you need to be for the time you need to be here and that’s infectious; it’s actually quite intoxicating.

I think what NAWBO is doing for women in the community is really important. Women have unique challenges––we are parents, business owners, we are juggling a lot of balls. Women need each other for support, especially as they’re growing their businesses. They need to be around like-minded women.

When I found NAWBO, I knew it was the right place for me. It felt inclusive, gave me the opportunity to learn from other women business owners and inspired me to join my chapter’s board of directors.

Policy & advocacy is huge for me, I like that NAWBO understands the policies & the impact businesses. Also, it’s been a great resource for finding vendors and also finding women who are likeminded and provide a safe place to talk through things on a local level, but also on regional and national levels. It’s good to have other women who understand.”

The leadership experience I’ve had helped me step up when needed in my business & community. I’ve had the opportunity to build relationships with other successful women business owners throughout the country. The success of my business has really been based on my relationship with NAWBO—the people I’ve met and the experiences I’ve had.”
