Dear NAWBO Silicon Valley Members & Friends,

Spring has arrived and we are delighted to resume our in-person events. Our Membership Drive Mixer last month was buzzing, and we welcomed 5new members.

I am a firm believer in enriching your mind and soul by meeting new people. I would like to thank my new friends Maggie, Savita, and Hung of Rotary 5170 for the invitation to attend their inaugural International Women’s Day event. I had a wonderful time connecting with many amazing women and learning of the remarkable services Rotary 5170 is doing locally and globally.

A big shout out to my friend Anne Freedman for her summary of NAWBO’s HERstory in the Making-Virtual International Summit with participants from 10 different countries. “Who Knew? Recycled Bras and Tequila Bottles = Ways to Save the Planet and Make $$ for Women Business Owners” Recycled bras going to 130 nonprofits worldwide, tequila bottles from Mexico for “to-go” cocktails, Moroccan skincare products, and innovative waste containers all are part of the global environment-conscious “circular economy”– and women business owners are leading the production and sales of these remarkable products and trends.” See here for resources to take your business global.

Let’s celebrate this Earth Day by taking a moment for ourselves and enjoy our beautiful Bay Area trails, parks, lakes, and ocean.

Until the next time…

“The Earth is what we all have in common.” – Wendell Berry
