Mazda Miles, CMM (CEO, Perfection Events) was recently honored as Board Member of the Year by the Greater Philadephia chapter of NAWBO (National Association of Women Business Owners). Mazda serves as Vice President and programs chair of the chapter, and recently shared her reasons for being involved with the chapter with other members:
"When I first joined NAWBO, like most other business owners, I joined under the premise that I was walking into an organization that was full of women who would be chomping at the bit to give me new business and infuse new revenue into my company. Delightfully, I did experience wonderful growth and new revenue in my first 2 years of NAWBO membership. But I found much more than that too - it was sisterhood, comradery, education, resources, and support. I gained a network of women who had been there or who were going where I was going and understood and were willing to be with me along my journey and ensure I did not fail along the way. I will be a NAWBO member for life - I need NAWBO for my business to grow and thrive."
