This is a gathering for women/female business owners of companies of all sizes.
I created this group in June 2016, because of a conversation I had with a friend who runs a 250+ employee business in Alabama. She shared with me how much her local group has helped her in the business world as a female owner. After an unfruitful attempt to find a similar group for myself, I decided to create one. And here it is.
Women business owners face unique challenges - especially when dealing in male dominated fields. If we are assertive we can be labeled as ruthless or pushy, and if we are passive we might be looked at as a pushover. We react, communicate, and lead differently than men. GOALS for the group? TBD as we grow.
My thoughts now?
This will be a place to help each other grow our businesses, share ideas, inspire change, and share resources. A variety of prominent speakers will featured based on suggestions from meetings. Hope to see you there!
