Celebrating 30 years of serving the women business owners of Phoenix
Spring 2017 • nawbophx.org
Message from the President So far, this year has been full of forming new partnerships and creating lasting relationships with our community partners, such as ASBA, ASU Sparxx, Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, e-Women Network and Athena Valley of the Sun, to name just a few. We are looking for more community alliances to partner with on a monthly basis so that members and those interested in membership may come together for a happy hour at the Omni Montelucia. I am thrilled to be a part of this growing organization and witnessing first-hand the impact it has on our membership! The power of our national organization is getting even stronger. National NAWBO started a new countrywide program designed specifically for our Premier members who own businesses that exceed $1 million in annual revenue. It is appropriately named The Circle, and our very own Lynda Bishop is the program director. This is an exciting time to be a NAWBO member, and this new program will fill a need by offering deeper support by providing members peer and business connections, access, and learning opportunities above and beyond their actual membership. This will come in the form of mastermind groups, two-day retreats each year, a speaker’s bureau and much more. The most exciting news is here in Phoenix, because we are offering a program to fulfill the need of women business owners who are passionate about breaking the $1 million mark through the Million Dollar Break-Through Program. This special program will be led by Susan Brooks, founder of Cookies from Home and a founding member of the NAWBO Phoenix Chapter 33 years ago. Although women own 9.1 million businesses across the U.S., only 3 percent reach $1 million in annual revenue. Resources, guidance and support to serve women business owners in the $250,000+ category who are ready to go to the next level are limited and hard to find. It’s why we are thrilled that Susan chose NAWBO to partner with, and we are currently looking for participants and sponsors, so please visit our website to learn more. Finally, we know that no one succeeds alone … and NAWBO offers the means for women business owners to contribute to the success of others. Won’t you join us? You’ll be surrounded by some of the most ambitious, collaborative women business owners in the Valley who will inspire you every day to reach your fullest potential. Please visit our website or contact our office for more details!
