I have really enjoyed working with my advisor. She has given me valuable information and advice on starting a business. Thank you for everything you taught me! It has been very valuable as I learn and grow!

In just two meetings together, my advisor and I curated a flexible path forward to help my business grow. She challenged my thought processes to offer ideas/solutions I would otherwise have no knowledge of. She helped reel me in from giving the world my armor. She showed me the heart of warrior woman. Each time we work together, I know she will lock arms with me to forge into whatever challenges lie ahead. Supportive women encourage and lift others up and I FEEL IT from her. Thank you for believing in my visions and goals in business and in life!

As a growing business, it eases my stress to know that I can reach out to [NDWBC] any time I need to, and they have always been there. I have been able to secure a strong foundation and start my growth process with the help and services of the business coaching that is offered. I am now more confident in my ability to continue to grow my business so that we can reach help more people. 

We are so thankful to the NDWBC for all of the support and resources that are provided. Connecting with women in business is something we should have done a long time ago!
