RELATIONSHIPS TO REVENUE!
BLACK AND BROWN WOMEN
are starting businesses more than ever! They are passionate and purpose-filled. Yet, their efforts are often not reflected in their income.
We are here to skew the statistics...together!
W.O.M.B. is a business networking organization committed to training BIPOC women entrepreneurs to leverage professional relationships to create multiple revenue streams within their businesses.
The 3Cs of W.O.M.B:
You may be thinking, “This looks good, but why is W.O.M.B. the right organization for me?”
Our 3 pillars represent the values that guide us each day!
“Succeeding in business is all about making connections.” Richard Branson
It's more than networking. Connecting to other women who cheer for your celebrations and listen to your frustrations, who often experience the same obstacles as women entrepreneurs of color, is invaluable. The connections you make here will last a lifetime!
“A purpose does not just happen, it is cultivated.” Bryant McGill
To cultivate is to nurture and help to grow. Success does not just happen overnight. It requires time, energy, effort...and the right tools and training. W.O.M.B. provides members with training opportunities and coaching in the areas of business that will help ensure members' success. We believe your success is our success and we are DEDICATED to helping you win!
“Anything is possible when you have the right people there to support you.” Misty Copeland
Sometimes, you need a cheering squad or a sounding board. Sometimes, a vent session or a stoplight. Having a team around you for your celebrations and your frustrations, who often experience the same obstacles as women entrepreneurs of color, is invaluable. Circles become family!
The "Your 168" handouts provided participants with a clear understanding of their finite time. As a result, they discover how to strike a productive balance between revenue-generating activities and essential tasks to be delegated, for greater personal efficiency and the preservation of their total well-being.
W.O.M.B. (Woman-Owned Minority Businesses has been a blessing and a strategic tool in helping to grow my business. The accountability circles are instrumental in gaining insight, feedback, and peer support, which is essential in getting to the next level. The circle members are the unsung she-roes of the momentum I'm experiencing in my business. I'm grateful for your vision.
