What the heck is a WESOS?
That is a question we hear all the time from new prospective Sisters who join us at their first Chapter Meeting. They probably ask it when they are invited to join us by another Sister who wants to spread our message to friends, family and business collaborators. I know it was the first question that I asked when I heard about WESOS !
It's obviously an acronym for Women Entreprenuers Secrets of Success...but it has come to mean so much more to those of the women who walk through the doors of a Chapter Meeting.
WESOS approaches networking from a collabortive perspective. Most of the time, network groups segregate their members into Chapters based on their business sector. Only one financial professional, only one direct sales professional, etc. Our vision of networking is different because women do business differently. We brainstorm, partner and collaborate. If you've ever seen a woman put together a potluck dinner in under 10 minutes - Who's bringing dessert? Who has the salad? - you know that we work best when our true nature for working together is given the honor it deserves. Everyone has unique strengths and talents. We believe that we all become more successful and more profitable by working and learning together! At WESOS, we encourage you to find the right fit; the Chapter that feels like home. Come to every meeting we have, or just when it fits your schedule or is a convenient location.
Many of the women who join us for the first time have never been involved in networking for their business or are just starting down their paths to success. That can be an intimidating feeling! To walk into a WESOS Chapter Meeting is different. You're greeted by an Ambassador Sister who is there to make sure you meet other women entrepreneurs just like you in a warm and open setting. You'll be welcomed like family by Sisters who are eager to help you flourish and grow.
Now...about the "Sister" thing. You've seen me use that a few times on this page and you may be thinking it sounds just about as odd as WESOS did to you a few minutes ago. We call our fellow WESOS members Sisters for a very simple reason. We value the authentic relationships built amoung us as highly as any business gain we may have. We celebrate each others triumphs and come together in times of tragedy. We support each other, cheer for each other and hold each other to standards of excellence that help our lives grow, not just our businesses. I encourage you to find a Chapter meeting that fits your schedule on our calendar. Come out and join us! Our Chapter meetings are always free to attend and we love meeting new women on the pathway to success. If I can be of any help , please feel free to drop me a note with the link below. I hope to meet you soon at an upcoming WESOS event or meeting. It changed my life to walk into one.I know it will do the same thing for you!
