WEEN was different from any other networking event I've gone to in the past. I'm more an introvert, so networking events tend to be overwhelming and draining for me...not something that I particularly look forward to. But from the first moment I was at the WEEN event, I felt welcome, safe, comfortable and at home. Lea welcomed me with a big smile and friendly introduction, and the other women in the group were so genuine and fun. I loved how everyone who attended was there to give, provide support and make authentic connections. Lea and her team instantly created this loving, accepting and supportive community for women to engage with each other and network. I also appreciated how we could present ourselves and our business for 90 seconds. It was such a wonderful opportunity to share my work, introduce myself in a comfortable environment, share with the rest of the women how I could support them, but also let them know what I needed support in as well. The WEEN community is authentic, full of powerhouse women who are ready to support, give and have a good time together. I left my first event feeling like I had found a like-minded community of authentic business owners all doing what they were passionate about.
