President's Message - January 2020

January 6, 2020


Happy New Year! I can’t believe 2020 is a new year and decade! I hope you are as ready to take on this amazing year of opportunities, wins and accomplishments!!! 

We have so many opportunities for you to connect, learn and grow in the New Year! Take advantage of the many opportunities that your NAWBO membership offers to help you succeed and manifest those goals you have for this coming year. 

We will be forming in first quarter 2020 additional Compass Circles, our premier member-only peer mentoring support experience. We kicked-off this program in 2019 with two circles where women business owners with shared needs in similar business models met for two hours monthly in small groups to exchange ideas and experiences to support connecting, learning and growing as leaders and their business. The Compass Circles are a great way for you to build a support group to help you achieve your business objectives and goals. There will be a short presentation at our Circle of Learning on January 9th regarding this member-only benefit. If you can’t make this meeting, please email Tisha Hammond for more information, if interested in learning more.
