"Giving back and helping others to find their way within the organization is empowering. I truly believe in surrounding myself with strength and I thrive in seeing others succeed!"

Q: What advice do you have for a new entrepreneur?

Patience is a virtue and is needed as contracts are not typically awarded on the first interaction.  Relationship building is essential. Also, remember that anyone may have business – WBE’s or Corporations.

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

Focus on meeting new people, building a network and learning. People do business with others that they know, like and trust, and building these relationships takes time. It is also important to truly understand the business you want to work with, and you need to take time to qualify the opportunities.

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

I have met so many wonderful people and learned so much – about business, certification and myself.  Being a part of the Forum and the Host Committee is truly an honor. It is invigorating and enriching to be amongst strong women business owners and know that we stand together in hard work, networking and quality offerings.
