“It’s a very slow transition, but I am going through it, just kind of trying to balance responsibility as a mom, as a wife, as a professional, and then hopefully business owner… I think you can do everything if yo have the right motivation and right support. I think that’s what (Blazin’ Babes) is all about, getting us all together and talking about what it’s been like, because all of us went through some kind of transition.”

“Last year, I was one of the featured hosts of a Blazin’ Babes’ event which enabled me to highlight a segment of my business. Because of the networking, marketing and word of mouth that was generated from the event, I was asked to return the following year to be the exclusive host where I secured numerous clients at one sitting in addition to new business that continues to flow my way. Being part of the Blazin’ Babes network has been a truly enjoyable and rewarding experience.”

I began my new business, Lotus & Lily, in Winter of 2016, and hit the ground running trying to advertise and connect the old fashioned way, one person at a time. The value in being a member of Blazin’ Babes became evident after my first networking event they hosted which allowed me to showcase what I do in a room full of people all at once. It was due to the exposure that I received that particular night that allowed me to secure my first major corporate account, and multiple non-corporate accounts. Additionally, Blazin’ Babes’ enables me to be part of a group of women who are committed to supporting each other in myriad ways, a real asset when I have questions or concerns about my own business, as I can turn to anyone within the network and get answers.”

“Blazin’Babes was really critical in helping my business get off the ground and my first round of clients came from Blazin’ Babes’ members… I think women leave (Blazin’ Babes’ events) feeling good about themselves and good about each other. I think it’s critical. I’m very grateful Renata was able to help my business the way that she did.”

“The event at Tria was a success. It’s nice to know you are meeting other professional women while shopping for a great cause.” (Reflection on a charity shopping networking event. Northshore Modern Luxury Magazine Fall 2015)
