Are your ears ringing? I am so excited for our BCPWN community, and I’ve recently had opportunities to share it. On April 6th, I had the pleasure of hosting Congressman Josh Gottheimer and local female leaders for a Women’s Roundtable at our offices in Ridgewood. In response to the importance of small business owners working together in order to thrive, I shared how BCPWN is a great source for hiring and partnering.
Equally important, the Congressman speaks about the need for all of us to get involved and pay attention to the decisions that are being discussed, because what they do impacts our business and our businesses impact the community. He not only listens; he hears the challenges we face as business owners in New Jersey. And he takes action; by working to lower taxes, cut out-of-date regulations, train our workforce, invest in infrastructure, and support small businesses!
It’s no surprise, then, that he received the prestigious Spirit of Enterprise award by the US Chamber of Commerce. At an event that was hosted by the Paramus Chapter at Garden State Plaza, I was honored to speak in his support. I reinforced the contributions of groups like BCPWN and described ECG’s recent WBENC certification; something that other women business owners may want to explore. I promise to dedicate more space to its value in a future post, but for anyone who’s interested, you can visit them here.
So it’s been an exciting time for our growing community. As I mentioned in a recent Facebook post from my business, I’m committed to keeping the conversation going and helping address the issues with actionable steps.
I look forward to working with you to make sure that our voices are heard, and to help make an impact on each of our communities.
