Read about our participants are saying:

 “When I signed up for the program, I didn’t know what to expect. I knew that Becky had killed it running another major (entrepreneurship) program in the past. But what was this one going to look like. I didn’t know what it was going to answer for me. First off, the speakers she introduced to were fantastic. I would not have heard of their awesomeness otherwise. Second, the first intro session gave me clarity that I never had before. I don’t always ask for help but Becky offering it so willingly let me work on stuff that was long overdue. I left that session with a roadmap to organize my own business. I also got 2 key intros to people I would later collaborate with. I started my year with a whole new lens on everything. This program gave me the resources and clarity that I never knew I needed. Becky is a great support to have around. It has been amazing spending more time with her through this program. Her heart is filled with generosity and support. I cannot wait to see how she grows this program for cohorts to come.”

“Being a part of the Community Connect Women’s Entrepreneur Network has been very enlightening for me. Becky has helped me get focused and clear on the vision for my new business and has been a supportive accountability leader. The Women’s group is diverse and has a range of women with whom to connect. The workshops have been well organized by pertinent and relevant topics for those starting a new venture. Becky has supplied plenty of resources, opportunities to network, and support to push the participants to get out of their comfort zone. Becky had a true desire help people succeed.” – Elizabeth Gossage, Bridges613
