On Thursday, November 4, 2021, women across Newfoundland and Labrador traded in their business suits and everyday workwear for formal wear. You came together and walked the red carpet at NLOWE’s annual Entrepreneur of the Year Awards Gala. Some came to receive awards, many came to network, and some came to see old friends; you all came to support and celebrate one another. That’s mentorship at its best, and you are all doing it, maybe even unconsciously. This is how we lift each other up.
Being an entrepreneur is stressful: you shoulder the burden alone. It’s during difficult times that you need each other most. This year’s awards gala was our best attended in recent history. You showed up for one another and lifted that burden together, even if for just a short time—further proof that NLOWE members are building a supportive community and that you are there for each other.
Successful women within the NLOWE community share insight and experiences that you can easily tap into to grow your business. Becoming an NLOWE member connects you to a professional network that could open doors to your future. So, what are you waiting for? If you are not a part of the NLOWE community already, the time to join is now.
A woman alone has power; collectively, we have impact. —Shelley Zalis, Senior Contributor, Forbes
