Chapter president of novel that national sources of women business owners. And I and I think it's so important that we we specify what now apple isn't what it does so Christine welcome to the nation. Thank you thank you for having me so now about national association women business owners its mission is to propel women. And spears of economic. Social and political influence and leave that last part political it is bipartisan. We have members who are both sides of the high oil. And we are actively this year following. This year is an election year 2018. Wrecked actively engaging her manners to inform them who's running from office would dare. What is their agenda making sure that members. No. How to vote. What they have to do to vote in primaries with me aptitude to be able to vote in there and their designated area where they either polling places. So this year all the way coming up to Election Day will be focusing on that bipartisan after me teachers and others. There employees that the miners know are informed and know what's going on in the you know in the election. And space weather Europe and women in politics in all running for office. Or just need to have your voice represented by full team. Novel. And first bitter it appears to me that that's what you. That's what part of your message. 11 part of our message the other part is that that spears of social and economic influence. You know we do everything that we can to support our numbers make sure that they have knowledge and access to funding. Guide knowledge and access to events going on in western new York and may. I'll speak to one at that recently ignite buffalo one of our members recently he was one of the 25000 dollar winds. She company is that that is paper crafts miracles hey I have chat hand makes the papers John will be the unit. Yeah I gave pieces of artwork exuded every single thing she treats is unique and beautiful and she. Would not have applied to ignite buffalo had not voted 9192. Attention and then tune now about. Had a look at me any information session where members can go and ask questions. Two representatives of ignite for. She applied. And she acted out of the courage to 25000 her hair. I read her at the on the FaceBook of us. Yes yes she was at the event what that music walk us through the history now apple because you know since 1994 there's been. Are the star or foundations of note taker. So the national organization. Was founded in and guys 74. In the DC area and take together. A couple of the systems together and when indeed things that they were having a difficult it was getting access to business once and funding. And that's the foundation have found out that was started in the DC area. And then. Short time later in 94 the chapters and we still had to this day several members who Wear founding members of our chapters to actively involved in check out there. And you know I should point now. 2008 teen is that. Thirtieth anniversary of each 5050. Which is a legislative item bill as passed. That allows women business owners to take. On their own without email comes used to be you number thirty years ago but what was that that was like 88. To remember in 1988 women could now take alone without an up close and it was cute Alan you're not that I I remember 1980 I think I was in like fourth or fifth grade I I remember factory. You if you were women in business unit had to have a male co sign ATP year uncle can be your brother could be your husband's. Weather but had to be a man you couldn't as a business owner just go out and get island to help start your business or our help he moved to the next problem does this action. So that was that landmark piece of legislation came through thirty years ago and we still. Are written you know acted to him he showed that piece of legislation states and. So I'm not or is this a unified and ways of creating opportunities that's women starting their business but more and even more than that. Have no voice from a legislation. To get this point. And. I think from child care policy every two. Health care policy anything that would affect the business owners specifically women on businesses. Now though is actively. You making sure that their voices heard on Capitol Hill. Okay now I think we're really we touch on this point why would someone want to join temple. There anyone anywhere at any one of our listeners out there female business owner or someone who's thinking about starting a business. So the benefits of an apple. So the benefits and Abbott scientists say it is their use a membership there's a cost to joining membership and one of the things we do a comic cast that so many different things we do. So once a month I'd September through June we have monthly dinner meetings. Our first one coming out this year is September 12 at the Hyatt place right off the 290 and owners can open up that registration shortly. Beats the benefits of joining apple you'd get to be as a woman owned business or just. You don't even have to be a woman or business owners there's different membership levels that you get to do in a room with other business owners. That have gone through what it's like to handle work life balance to be around other business owners that have. Have got to kinda how we handle the situation hand capital and play how to handle the situation hand scaling up how did you handle this when you scale up. How did you handle this transition and to people had that. Pool of colleagues and that collegial atmosphere did note that you're not alone the phrase what does it it's lonely at the top is. It's so true. But you need to be able to talk to other individuals that have been through and that are going through with you and even if they're in different industries and be. Business owners that own construction firms and engineering firms and architects in the lawyers and artists and individuals like myself that are consulting firms in the such a spectrum of type of business owner you have so much now it's. To share and to be around that sisterhood and say hey I went through this even on in the financial industry I dealt with this issue Hughes you need to know. This went this way for me but if you do it this way it's gonna come out better for use them edited for me. So so here's a quote that I rent it says. Don't follow the standard set to stand no set the new standard and be the new standard. Let's talk about that a vote. I've sat at my club is the fact that. Since when is it came from accounts of I didn't abundant. Other future business owners are potential business owners existing ones to know that you don't have to follow the path well tramples. And they use that. Use the example of when I started. Typically we start business in office space to you'd have over cost. And I. That is so it's the state entered and you know now we are establishing a 100%. Base where business on mine plays were at a house. That is not the state. It it's a different approach to business operations. So there's. It you don't have to this of course she's gone but I. New it's different ways of doing and it does is keeps an attempt to see. And you see it's well warned that story just doesn't it doesn't pay and it's. Expressed. To practice at score tied. To. It must have an office story for you must. This desks in the printers. Haven't. Had a lead creations. To it's it's something are from different industries. Industry's moving towards days. It's. Right it is so much like with. Laptops cellphones. Technologies and I'd loudly in everything's dark cloud. Everything and and it's much easier so much easier and you can. And don't you know. The child and being in assassins in space cap. And so far my biggest liquid right now you have created deep voice and unified voice for women it's the chip also create opportunities. And now apple has helped women. On goal from maybe being stale home on all war. Taken their idea from conception to implementation. Hitting a lot of women too they want. You know they they want to be in business they wanna work but it's like Ecstasy ads at Stanley how do you find that liquid balance and networks EUR.

You know having a backup plan what happens if you have a disaster in your company how do you recover from that and an. Talk to other business owners where they have. Had a disaster take place how did they recovered from that.

So Christine writer for the show we're talking about now though and there's candidates involved in ways that limit its owners can find out about not enough memoir about how people can really get involved with not so. A couple of different things the first thing when you become a manner we have pride face bunkers so if we're not having an M and a having dinner meeting mean with the community. You can interact with your now about manners in archive it tastes but it's for now numbers only. Members are there with an uphill we've 92 members amongst you and he accidentally. We are growing. Evidence in the last couple years beat grief and picking up fighters and members a year which fantastic. But so FaceBook group which is private and secured its only for now the matters. And then the other ways that you can get involved in green cards this is we have communities. If you are passionate about economic development and and the west either community you can get involved with community surrounding economic development. We have a community. And communications market needs a marketing our chapter out to potential. Members. In and communications getting news information. We have a finance committee. To help with the financial elements of about humanity with. We have membership if you won people with an accusing other members yeah. And then we have. One other committee of course we have lots of other committees but one that's pretty cocky it's called the each one reach one. Community and this. Committee is specific. To an event that we have once a year it is a it's in. 300 person this year it'll be about where an estimating 175. Attendees maybe. And that sign out of Henderson a T 75. At art it's a dinner event in March march 13 is when it's going to be and it's a progressive networking to Anderson he'll have your salad at one table and you talked to people like your take on. And then you moved to your dinner humane on court. Table of course. And you'll talk to a whole different side keep on any chance have a conversation and and then. And Mitterrand in the evening you moved here dissect tape only had just talked a whole different set of people and potentially. If there's ten people weigh your table for your salad ten people at your table for months and potentially ten people at another table. Mean that's he's there he almost thirty people that you are tuning had a constructive conversation. Over the course of the evening dozens cats and so then that is apt to stay out there. And march 13. It's registration has opened up for example if you wanna be on the committee for that helping the planning and logistics and getting sponsors and helping putting that event together its primary key event that beat her fears. It's always in March. And it is always looking for new committee members that's probably the best way to get involved but. If you join now bogeys they hate and with each one each one. We're always looking for action hands and tied don't have as people like you know my very busy with my business.
