A MESSAGE FROM NAWBO BRC's PRESIDENT
- Kathleen Dorsey
No busy entrepreneur is willing to commit her precious time and financial resources to an undertaking unless she perceives that the value to her is at least as great as what she gives up.
Thousands of women business owners nationwide have seen the value in their NAWBO memberships. That value may be measured in terms of opportunities for business development, networking, leadership roles, or collaborating with other members.
Some find that the value likes in the timeliness and applicability of the monthly meetings allowing members to learn and reach beyond their potential. Others find enrichment from their involvement in our entrepreneurial scholarship program, public policy awareness, or outreach to build the diversity of the membership.
We look forward to sharing our organization with you and helping you...
Description: We have never opened our Mastermind Program to the public. But on December 17th- we are doing just that!
Come network, enjoy lunch and experience a sample of our ever-so-popular Mastermind Program which can give you guidance with your business.
You have heard about our popular Mastermind program but you are still asking yourself "what is a Mastermind meeting all about?"
A Mastermind group meeting can be compared to a meeting of your own Board of Directors. It offers brainstorming, education, accountability and support in a group setting with fellow NAWBO-Baltimore members. At these meetings you will learn that you aren't alone and that we are better working together.
Join us for our this Pop-Up Mastermind Meeting to experience a sample of this powerful NAWBO benefit while also networking with local business leaders. There will be three groups being run by our current as well as our two past chapter presidents. Bring you business questions and obstacles if you would like peer advice and guidance during this event.
Because of the format of this meeting, there is limited space. Do NOT wait to secure your seat. This WILL sell out!
