President's Message from KC Padget  

Wow, September is here already.  What an exciting month this will be with RECHARGE RETREAT right around the corner.  Dana & Haley Stallings and their committee has been working extra hard at providing all of us the best value for our time together.   I hope all of you have signed up for this fabulous weekend!
A special thanks this month to Margaret Meier, with UltraShred Technologies, Inc. for sponsoring business cards to make it easier for inviting guests to our meetings. Be ready to grab a few and invite!
As we move through our year of growth I look forward to our growing membership, maintaining and renewing the important friendships we all have made over the years and developing new ones. How do we do that in our daily extremely busy lives we all lead?  Just a few simple steps may help all of us personally and professionally.
  1. Listen
  2. Be genuine
  3. Engage
  4. Provide support
  5. Keep in touch
As we grow and mentor each other always keep in mind that your kind word and smile may be the best thing that you can do for another woman business owner.
We will never completely know what another person is going through each day so let's always remember our Mission and Vision Statement.
Mission Statement: 
To inspire women business owners to grow through networking, education and support.
Vision Statement:
Our vision is a world where women business owners in Northeast Florida succeed.
I look forward to seeing you at our next Dinner meeting September 25th where Laura Sabo, our Education Director will have a great networking presentation!
