    Join us for our 10th anniversary celebration at the Decade of Dynamic Women dinner where we will be celebrating honoree, Brandi Morris, among other dynamic women in Tampa Bay! Learn more here!

    We asked each honoree if they would share 10 things they know now they wish they knew 10 years ago. Here’s Brandi's list:

    1. Nobody really knows what they’re doing all the time, we’re all winging it sometimes.

    2. Better to beg forgiveness than to ask permission.

    3. Don’t be afraid to take your time and do it right. It doesn’t matter of someone else can nail it in 30 seconds and it takes you 3 days. Make it right- unless you can just pay them to do it in 30 seconds.

    4. Success can be just as terrifying as failure.

    5. Take your space and be unapologetic about it. You have just as much right to be where you are as anyone else.

    6. Be you. Authentic + Honest = Best fits in clients and networking relationships.

    7. There is no such thing as work/life balance. It is all happening, all at once and you roll with it as comes.

    8. You may not be your ideal client. Don’t assume what you would want, could pay for, or what attracts you would be the same for your client.

    9. Busy does not mean productive.

    10. It’s ok to say no.

    Join us for our 10th anniversary celebration at the Decade of Dynamic Women dinner where we will be celebrating honoree, Effie Santos, among other dynamic women in Tampa Bay! Learn more here!

    We asked each honoree if they would share 10 things they know now they wish they knew 10 years ago. Here’s Effie's list:

    1. Know your personal values and stay true to them always…it is who you are.

    2. You cannot change ANYONE…you can be the role model, lead by example and encourage.

    3. You truly become the people who you surround yourself with.

    4. Create written house rules with consequences for your children starting when they are toddlers. They will learn, become independent and feel accomplished. And you will stay a sane Mom.

    5. Spend money on experiences and not “things”. At the end of the day all we have is our memories.

    6. There truly is a Cinderella story…you just have to find him and not compromise your values and standards in the process.

    7. Give yourself “permission”…to rest for a day, to start over in life, dive into your next chapter, etc.

    8. Listen to your mom, she does have more experience than you and loves you unconditionally.

    9. What you think about you bring about.

    10. The only thing we cannot create more of is time…take time to be still. You will be surprised how much clarity you will gain.

    3. Side step gossip, embrace goodness.

    4. Find mentor, latch on and listen. Be mentor, latch on and listen.

    5. Childhood interests and troubles are short cuts to adult success. “Flaunt your Quirk”.

    6. Your social sixth sense is your GPS. Trust it.

    7. Fancy people are fearful too!

    8. Give others the grace that you so hope to be given!

    9. When you smell cra, cra…back away!

    10. You, do you! Boo!

    We asked each honoree if they would share 10 things they know now they wish they knew 10 years ago. Here’s Sharon's list:

    3. I wish I knew how many events I would have to attend; I would have invested in uniforms.

    4. I have always known the value of relationships in life and business.

    5. I know now that when I see crazy, cross the street.

    6. I know now to absolutely trust my gut.

    Over the past decade, the number of women-owned companies has grown at a rate five times faster than the national average, with Florida leading the way. Working Women of Tampa Bay has lead the way in celebrating and cultivating connections for women and becoming the largest women’s networking group in Tampa Bay. As we approach our ten-year anniversary, we look to honor ten women who have played an integral role in our growth during a Decade of Dynamic Women Dinner on Thursday, September 5, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the Bryan Glazer Family Jewish Community Center.

    These powerhouses have helped WWOTB become more than a simple networking organization but an avenue where meaningful connections are forged and women lift each other up—often in life-changing ways.

    Honorees include:

    • Kristi Campbell - Franchise Owner, Home Instead Senior Care Tampa - Brandon
    • Sharon Fekete - Founder, The Doctor Whisperer & 13th Avenue Media

Founded in 2016, the Foundation has given more $20,000 in seed money to more than 30 women-owned businesses. These financial awards have led to tremendous growth on the part of their recipients.

    Sponsorships for the event are available.  For more information, please contact Michelle Turman at 813-839-2282 or via e-mail mturman@catalystcs.org

    Celebrating 10 years of Connections & Collaborations

    Over the past decade, the number of women-owned companies has grown at a rate five times faster than the national average, with Florida leading the way. Working Women of Tampa Bay has lead the way in celebrating and cultivating connections for women and becoming the largest women’s networking group in Tampa Bay. As we approach our ten-year anniversary, we look to honor ten women who have played an integral role in our growth during a Decade of Dynamic Women Dinner on Thursday, September 5, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the Bryan Glazer Family Jewish Community Center.

    These powerhouses have helped WWOTB become more than a simple networking organization but an avenue where meaningful connections are forged and women lift each other up—often in life-changing ways.

    Proceeds from the dinner will go to support the Working Women Foundation that builds a supportive community of mentors and offer start-up grants to women entrepreneurs. Founded in 2016, the Foundation has given more $20,000 in seed money to more than 30 women-owned businesses. These financial awards have led to tremendous growth on the part of their recipients.

    Kali Rabaut of Suncoast Compost, which offers curbside composting as well as event support, tells us:

    The seed money grant was an incredible help. We were able to purchase five portable waste stations, and our events just love them. Because these stations can fold up to fit in the back of the car, I am able to let a team member transport the bins. This has freed up my time and allowed me to grow my business.”

    And Lisbeth Pacheco with Ethos Roasters, a craft roaster of Fair-Trade Organic beans, says:

    The grant helped us build up our inventory and display for the 2017 Tampa Bay Holiday Gift Market by the Junior League. Our business grew 300% after that event! And we now just bought a second roaster.”

    We hope you’ll consider attending or sponsoring the dinner to celebrate 10 years of connections and collaborations. By working together, we can continue our efforts to educate, motivate and inspire female entrepreneurs in Tampa Bay to achieve their goals so that they can become women, like you, who lift others to success.

    Sponsorships for the event are available.  For more information, please contact Michelle Turman at 813-839-2282 or via e-mail mturman@catalystcs.org
