June Meeting - 5 Critical Keys to Mastering Your Money Mojo
Heidi Garis - Tap Into Abundance Now

The missing pieces in creating success and prosperity are not working harder, massive action strategies or special marketing campaigns. They are the hidden things that lie deep within us.
Join us on June 1st at 8AM at the James Lorah House.

It’s been an amazing 2015 for Women’s Business Forum (WBF) and the year’s not over yet. Women’s Business Forum continues to offer educational and inspirational monthly programs. They’ve had record attendance at this year’s socials. There’s a new website on the way—and they’ve entered into a strategic partnership with the fifth largest micro lender in the country—Finanta.
The partnership with Finanta will allow WBF to expand on current programming. In addition to monthly programs, WBF will partner with non-profits and volunteers throughout the county to offer technical assistance. They will create affinity groups to offer emerging entrepreneurs support and accountability. And, for the first time, through their partnership with Finanta, Women’s Business Forum will also be able to offer business financing to women entrepreneurs—providing holistic support as its members evolve into successful business owners.
Finanta is a non-profit 501(c)(3) community lender that promotes the growth and economic expansion of diverse communities through the infusion of capital and the provision of business consultation services. http://www.finanta.org/
WBF President Sheila Jacobs said “We’re thrilled, this is an amazing opportunity. This partnership will change lives. By partnering with Finanta and other non-profits, we’ll support our members in a much more comprehensive way. Our mission is to educate, mentor and inspire women to build and sustain viable businesses. When you combine our mission with a comprehensive system of support and a lower barrier to entry for business financing amazing things will happen!”
Bring your lunch and come meet our new partners on September 23 at 12 noon at Thompson Toyota to learn how an affinity program can help your business grow. We look forward to seeing everyone there.<more>
