January 2013 President's Message
Happy New Year! I am excited to welcome in the New Year and to do it with each of you. 2013 brings great hope and expectations within the business world. Hope for a better and stronger business climate, and expectations of moving forward—growing our businesses both locally and globally. Many of us will be stepping out and stepping into new business arenas. Many will focus closer to home, growing our core customer base utilizing technology and key personnel. We all will grow leaner, more efficient and effective. The key factor is that we will GROW. We will be STRONGER. We will DEVELOP. We will CREATE more. We will HIRE more. We will CONNECT—EMPOWER and PROPEL each other successfully.
I am excited about the future of NAWBO San Antonio—it is bright and vibrant. On Tuesday, January 15, we announced the finalists for the Entrepreneurial Spirit Awards (ESA), which will be held on March 20 at the Oak Hills Country Club. Cavender Audi hosted the January 15 event at their dealership. The ESA Committee put together an outstanding program and did not disappoint.
In the coming year, I want to encourage our NAWBO San Antonio members to get involved. Volunteer on a committee [Entrepreneurial Spirit Awards (ESA), Entrepreneurial Connections—Fostering the Entrepreneurial Dream (EC-FED—teen mentoring), Membership, Public Policy, Corporate Partners, Alliance Partners and Military Affairs Committee (AP-MAC), Programs, and Corporate Partner Relations]. One of the keys to getting the most out of your NAWBO membership is being active on a committee. This is the first step that leads to a leadership role in NAWBO, which is more rewarding than you can ever imagine. By becoming active in NAWBO, you will grow yourself, your business, and the organization. It is a win-win-win.
Also in the coming year, I want to ask you, our NAWBO San Antonio members, Corporate Partners, Executive Member Partners, and our friends, to help us grow our membership. We need to grow in numbers. There are over 53,000 women-owned businesses in San Antonio. We need more to be members of NAWBO San Antonio. If each of us brought in two new women business owners this year, this organization would triple in size!!! That would be AWESOME!!! Help us make this happen! We all will benefit.
My wish is for all of us to be blessed with excellent health, great happiness, and business success beyond our imagination.
NAWBO San Antonio President
