Why NAWBO?
 
I had the same question five years ago. My business was stagnating. It was time putting energy into working ON my business rather than IN my business. Since I know the most effective way service industry businesses like mine to grow is through networking, I took myself on a "networking tour" of the Bay Area.
 
The first few were too industry-specific. Others were so focused on selling to each other, it felt like a meeting of pickpockets. Some were for businesses unlike mine and others were so large, I thought I might get lost in the crowd.
 
My first NAWBO SFBA meeting featured a keynote on upcoming legislative changes that would affect small Bay Area businesses. Fascinating topic and exceptionally useful because included action steps to stay involved. I sat at a table with smart, educated, passionate, ambitious women. I had found my tribe.
 
In the next two weeks, we are going to replicate my first experience. I'm giddy about the speaker lineup for our Give Yourself a Raise Workshop on October 12th. Informative, actionable and inspirational. There is limited seating, so register early for best pricing and your own seat at the table. Two days later, four of us head to the NAWBO National Convention. It's my first one and I'm told is it like my first meeting on 5 cups of black tea. Follow us on social media for live updates as our NAWBO SFBA tribe shares their experiences from Minneapolis.

  • I recently added a new book to my nightstand "to read" pile: A Year of Saying Yes by Shonda Rhimes. Shonda Rimes committed to saying Yes for one full year. "First came the terrifying public Yeses - delivering the commencement at Dartmouth...then came the excruciating private Yeses - reevaluating her health and confronting the damaging relationships in her life."

    Saying Yes allowed her to "explore, empower, applaud and love her truest self." It allowed her to take advantage of a larger world of possibilities.

  • As the President of this wonderful chapter, every now and again I get the question, "Why NAWBO?" Yes, I know there are many women's organizations in the Bay Area. Yes, I know there are only 24 hours in the day. And I do know that there are many individuals and organizations vying for your time. What I would ask you is, do you want to get the most out of the time you spend away from your business and family? Do you want to meet more than one business and personal goal with one community organization?
