My business coach meets with me weekly and helps me to stay focused and positive. Being self-employed comes with lots of ups and downs and self-doubts, but with my weekly meetings with my coach, I feel more motivated and focused on my goals.
I have been working with my fabulous business coach for two months. It has been both empowering and transformative. I have learned that if I don’t run my business, my business will run me. I am now running my business!
When I first met with the WCWB, I was greeted with respect, inspiration, and motivation. I started with an empty shell and an idea of what I wanted to do … after only a matter of weeks my idea was a company…a company that had a name, a brand, and a business plan in progress.
I am so very grateful to have found the WCWB. They have spent hours with me, along with my management team, as we make our way through the development of our second location. The patience and wealth of knowledge offered has been incredibly helpful!
The Washington Center for Women in Business is a valuable resource. In two visits, I benefited greatly. I received significant assistance to leverage business income without the loss of freedom. I highly recommend using WCWB as a resource regardless of what stage your business is in.
