Networking Is A Powerful Tool

This is a Knoxville Women In Networking (KWIN) meeting. We meet once a month and have one on one meetings at each other’s business.

I am blessed to be in several powerful women’s networking groups. What I love the most is getting to know these strong women who are making it in business, either as an owner, or working for a business. We have everything from psychologists to interior decorators and everything in between. It is not all about business, we celebrate occasions, promotions, and achievements. We give advice, when asked and ask for advice if we need it a well.

One of the most significant women that I have met through a networking is my banker, Leslie Godfrey, with Pinnacle Bank. After my husband, Ken, died the large bank I was doing business acted as if I had not been running the company for 4 1/2 years and was actually giving me a hard time. That was not what I needed after just having lost Ken. I called Leslie and within 10 days she had taken over all my accounts and loans and actually saved me a lot of money. We are friends now and go to lunch once a month, just because we like each other. She is much younger than me but we have a lot in common.
