How has NAWBO helped you grow your business?
The connections I have made through NAWBO have been super helpful to my business. While getting to know referral sources is always great, even more valuable is having a support system of like-minded and driven women to collaborate with on my journey.
What are the best tips you’ve learned as a NAWBO member you’d like to share to inspire/help other women business owners in Southern Nevada? (Inspiring Tomorrow’s Leaders)
(1) Don't be afraid to reach out and connect with people you don't know. This is so important! I have developed great friendships and business relationships with ladies in this organization but you have to put yourself out there to make it happen.
(2) Be focused on your business. Sometimes as business owners, we become scattered and it is hard to find our success. You need to figure out your niche and own it.
(3) While this may seem contradictory to number 2, open yourself to new opportunities. While we should totally own what we do and be focused, we can do that while starting a second business, preparing ourselves for our next phase, or growing our current venture into an additional specialty.
