“I would advise every WBE to get involved with your RPO, The Great Lakes Women’s Business Council has provided me with so many valuable programs like The Leadership Institute, Women’s Business Conference as well as The Awards Celebration and Forums. I have been able to take my business to a whole new level. Women are great collaborators, take advantage of all the many networking opportunities being a part of the WBENC community offers.”
Jodi Bailey Gill
“Get a mentor! Participating in the GWBC mentorship program as a Co-chair and Mentor, and launching the P2P international mentorship program helping women grown globally, for me has been the gift that keeps giving back. Mentorship programs crack the code on the business and personal challenges to build strong foundations.”
“My advice to a newly certified WBE is get involved immediately, be bold and tenacious, step out and meet everyone. Build relationships and reach out to the successful women and leaders and ask questions. Invest time and money with expectancy and follow up all the time. It’s your journey and future. Build strong relationships, be bold, and work hard. I love being around strong women who are focused and determined and propel you to another level of success. You must attend the events, meetings, do the work, follow up, and keep your Faith and never ever give up.”
