Marin Women at Work
"The girlfriends approach to building businesses".
Our vision at Marin Women at Work
is to bring women in business
together to encourage and support one another;
a group where our personal journey's are shared as well as our business goals and successes. And now more than ever we need to show our collective support. Strength in numbers.
"The big secret in life is that there is no big secret. Whatever your goal, you can get there if you're willing to work."

Book of the month:
Heather Young is a Mill Valley resident, retired litigator, empty nester and presenter at our July luncheon. Purchase Heather's novel below, The Distant Dead. A page turning mystery/thriller. You won't be able to put it down.
“I don’t have to chase extraordinary moments to find happiness – it’s right in front of me if I’m paying attention and practicing gratitude.”
Books to purchase
These are either books I have read or have been recommended to me by a MWAW member. I am always looking for a self help or business focused book and these deliver. In addition we have a fictional book "the Distant Dead" from this week's podcast presenter.
