The conference was awesome. I met a lot of people whom I plan to stay in connection with so that I can get my start-up business off the ground while supporting the mission of the U. S. Women Chamber of Commerce leveraging my position as a women owned business empowwing other women to take a stand for the same cause. We have to do this together ladies.

Looking forward to the next event to gain more knowledge. Thanks Margot and Chris. You all put together an awsome event. I am a proud new member to this organization and look forward to seeing more and more of what the U. S. Women Chamber has to offer and how I can be more supportive here in my community. There is a great need for many women business owners to take a stand here in my state and city. So look out world we are making a powerful move. Thanks again.
