August 21, 2013 President’s Letter
What an exciting evening at our July 17th meeting! Three powerful women business owners, Lisa Abeyta of APPCityLife, Susan Grace of Athletes Edge, LLC, and Jessica Mathews of Leverage Legal Group, that shared their challenges and successes in a “male dominated environment.” We came to the conclusion: we ARE different, and we are ready for the challenge. We provide opportunities not only to ourselves but to others. It is NOT the ultimate dollar we get, it is what we accomplish and who we touch that make the difference.
We work well with others, we move on, and above all we nurture and show respect and care for others.
As in our 3 pillars connections, (Business, Community, Public Policy) we continue to provide opportunities for better business and personal relationships, enhancing our community involvement, and influencing public policy for greater business success.
We as women business owners are stepping up to the plate, discovering our full capabilities, and influencing the change in the business environment.
Looking forward to seeing you at our next month’s Mayoral Forum, August 21st, for an informative evening.
Edna L. Lopez
President, NAWBO 2013-2014
