"Face time. Face time always trumps email or phone."

Q: What values have led to and continue to support your business acumen?

I never pretend to be something I am not, and I never pretend to be everything to everyone. It is a motto that has done me well and builds trust among colleagues and clients.  

Q: What advice do you have for a WBE attending their first Conference?

Everyone at the conference has something to offer. The more people you meet, the more relationships you build. The more you get involved with WBENC, the more you will get out of the organization and your certification. 

Q: What have been the benefits of being part of the WBENC network?

The other WBEs. I have often turned to my fellow WBE’s to ask advice on a client issue or business concern. They are always willing to impart valuable experiences so I do not have to go through the same painful process they have already encountered. The WBENC community is what you make of it. Get involved, share your specialties, expertise, and connections and others will reciprocate.
