“I’ve been a member of the Southern Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce for
many years because it is the best place in town to meet other incredible business people. I say people not women, because the male members of the group add an important perspective to business that helps us all learn and grow. I’ve made many friends there as well as found numerous clients that have grown my business. It is a great value and investment, no matter what kind of business you are in.”
