I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the enthusiastic group of women. This is the closest I have seen to a true grass-roots organization. I have attended many women’s networking groups over the years, and yours is very unique in that it has a true vibe of collaboration and support, and the women are very impressive, each and every one of them.
