TN Women Connect has been INCREDIBLY beneficial to my personal and professional life. As a small business owner, it can often feel like I am on an island making strategic decisions by myself. The wealth of knowledge and experience at any given event provides me with an opportunity to learn and see things from other viewpoints. Although I put on an outgoing front, I am naturally introverted – my goal at each event is to get to know one new person – this has allowed me build my community and has opened the door to many additional networks, which is crucial for my business. My confidence has grown exponentially because the more events I attend, the more comfortable I have become voicing what I do and why I do it. The events are fun and inviting, I have always felt genuinely welcomed and like I have a whole group of women cheering me on. The membership directory has been a FANTASTIC way to connect with women all throughout Metro Nashville – I love grabbing coffee in a 1:1 setting so I can learn ways I can help grow other women’s businesses.
