Ladies who Launch has been the #1 single greatest resource for growing my business. From the wonderful network of local Atlanta women to entreprenuers all over the country that I’ve had the pleasure of connecting with, the organization has been invaluable. Whether it’s prospective clients, fellow designers, business resources, or new friends – the Ladies Who Launch benefits, for me, have been abundant.
I attended my first meeting in January 2009 and since then have been involved in the incredible supportive circle of women. I have been involved in a lot of organizations but the community of Ladies Who Launch has been so supportive for me that I literally have grown my business solely on the connections of our community.
The last reason is obvious, but I’ll still list it because it’s so important. NETWORKING. I’ve met some amazing women who have been able to open doors for my business because of their connections. I’ve been on television, gotten new clients, and been introduced to strategic people that are in a position to change things for my business. We all tend to give business to one another whenever we can. These organizations serve as the traditional “golf course” for men. We make deals at our meetings like men make deals on the golf course.
