From a Business Member:
"What Women Want has become a true business partner for my businesses, I receive support that I do not get from other networking groups. The women are inspiring, collaborative and professional. Best of all, I have met women who I am proud to now call friends!"
Lynn Mione, Owner of Vine Wine Bar & Vine Wine Cellar
With 20 years of networking experience, What Women Want is one of the most productive and profitable networking groups I've participated in.
I joined the speaker board membership in 2015 and have been able to speak at several chapters. The best part about What Women Want is the flexibility of attending meetings when they work in my schedule. No pressure, just the opportunity to meet other women, make referrals and gain friendships! The future looks bright for the growth of this unique networking group. I've make friends and increased my clientele. May thanks to Judy Goss for creating this growing group!

"A great resource online..."
"I have been a Speakers Board member of What Women Want for a while now, and honestly never took full advantage of the site. I put aside some time to reach out to each member in my area and introduced myself. Just saying hello. Not selling anything. And what I received in return, besides connecting with women I would have never connected with, was I was asked to speak in front of one of the other chapters! This was such a fabulous opportunity to meet 20 women that I would not have met otherwise.
Thank you What Women Want!

"I may be a newbie but everyone was very welcoming"
"I am new to networking (on my own behalf anyway) and when I attended my first meeting a couple of months ago I was a little nervous and did not go with any expectations - usually the best approach to anything. I may have been the newbie but everyone was very welcoming. What I hoped would be a positive business experience also turned into an enjoyable social one. After one meeting I knew it was a good fit for me. After 30 years in administration and operations at my firm (yikes) I'm becoming more client facing, and embracing it. I'm looking to grow my practice as an insurance and financial advisor (while still keeping my day job :) I applaud you and this group for creating a forum that benefits women on so many different levels. "
