Are you feeling doubt?
Are you having one of those days? Weeks? Where you are feeling doubt about your business? Do I have what it takes to be successful? Will I make enough money? As a small business owner we all have those times when we doubt ourselves. And add a pandemic and geez of course our insecurities surface.
If you are feeling doubt, read this book. It was written a very long time ago-after the depression. But it has so much value that I encourage all that are feeling a little doubt a little insecure in your business to read it.
And please email me your thoughts, email@example.com

I am a single mom of a 23 year old, 2 rescue dogs. I currently live in Sonoma, am an avid reader and love fashion and everything outdoors.
I founded MWAW 5 years ago as I have always loved working with and supporting women. I believe that by working together we can thrive not survive, live our best life and be successful-together.
We have many fabulous networking groups in Marin but I wanted (needed) a group that connected on another level. I want to be serious about building businesses and offering support while also enjoying our time together. No boring meetings!
I am a hugger (when we can) passionate about making and keeping connections, and driven for success. If that sounds like something you'd be interested in, join us and share your stories with us.

I was once told if you are not using a CRM you are losing sales! After trying several different CRM's I went with Active Campaign for the functionality and the price!
