At WBENC, we love seeing women business owners step into their power and THRIVE — no matter what industry they’re in.

Read an excerpt from the latest episode of the podcast featuring Janet Sperry, a former oncology physician and Founder of Dakota Matting & Environmental Solutions LLC, a WBENC-Certified comprehensive matting supplier and turnkey access provider for the energy industry.

Tune in now for the inside scoop on this little-known industry that not only makes working safer and easier for oil and gas job sites, but also helps protect the environment.

Plus, discover the unique mindset, values, and practices that have helped Janet propel her company straight to the top — and how you can use them (and the support of the WBENC network) to supercharge your business success!

I would tell women, ‘Be aware of your gender, but don’t think about your gender.’ We all know our gender can affect perceptions, influence inter-actions with people, and overall can be a factor in the business world. But as long as you focus on why you are the best, or your product, service, or company is the best, you’re going to be successful.
