Grab the Giant (Virtual) Scissors: It’s the Grand Opening of the NAWBO-SA Blog!

August 15, 2018 12:47 PM | Graciela Urruchua (Administrator)

Greetings, NAWBO-SA members, future members, supporters, and everyone else in between!

My name is Marisa, and I’m here to introduce you to the brand-spanking new NAWBO-SA blog. Think of this as our virtual ribbon-cutting ceremony, just without the champagne and hors d’oeuvres (although, treat yourself if you wish).

I am thrilled to join the NAWBO-SA Marketing Committee as your resident blogger, and I can’t wait to learn alongside everyone.

A little about me...

I’m a freelance copywriter and content writer. I started my freelance writing business back in February, and I have been freelancing full-time since mid-May. I was born and raised in San Antonio, and I am proud to call this city my home. My husband was my high school sweetheart, and we have a feisty-- I mean, precious one year old son. I have a deep appreciation for coffee, cats, muscle cars, Star Wars, and travel. I make a lot of “Dad jokes,” and I can’t help but sing along to anything Disney.


When I started freelancing, I wanted to connect with other like-minded women in the community. I wanted to join an organization where businesswomen could not only network, but learn from each other and help each other grow.

And then I came across NAWBO.

I went to a Coffee Connections in June, and I was welcomed with open arms. I was amazed at the successful women that surrounded me, and from that moment on, I was driven to better myself and my business.

So, what’s in store?

Our goal with the blog is to provide educational content that will help you better your businesses. We’ll talk about self-development, marketing, business development, and anything else we think you might find helpful. We aim to create a space where we can interact and support each other-- where we can learn and grow together.

What’s next?

Keep an eye out for new blogs, and please-- don’t be shy! Feel free to share what you would like to learn (or what you have learned). Whether you’re a new business owner or a seasoned pro, I’d love to hear from you.

Now that you know a little about me, I’d love to know more about you. Introduce yourself in the comments and let me know why you joined NAWBO!

Now, grab your virtual (or real) champagne glass, and let’s give a toast to our new NAWBO-SA blog!
